Doctor Who: Series 8 Now Streaming on Netflix US

Just in time to catch up before Series 9 premieres on 19th September, Doctor Who's eighth series since the revival is now streaming on online service Netflix for US viewers (though it hasn't been added to the UK service).

Twelve new episodes shown last year that were previously unavailable have been added to the catalogue on the American version of Netflix - that's all of Peter Capaldi's first series as the Twelfth Doctor, from Deep Breath to season finale Death in Heaven. The Christmas Special, Last Christmas, isn't currently available for streaming, but will likely be added within the next few weeks.

Series 8 will also be added to the Australia & New Zealand versions of Netflix on 31st August. There's no news currently on when Series 8 will be added to Netflix in the UK - traditionally, Netflix UK add new seasons the following year after the US, so it's likely that Series 8 will hit Netflix UK sometime in early 2016.
