    I can't believe I'm going to let my crazy show and tell you guys....I'M SO SAD THAT DOCTOR WHO isn't streaming anymore! Any other Whovians here? I schlepped around in a funk all day on Monday that I couldn't watch it. It's been a daily part of my life for 2 years since I started it on Netflix and did a slow-binge of it. I was halfway through season 7 when they announced it going off of Netflix, so I had to watch the last season and a half to get through it. I bought Season 9 on Amazon but just can't bring myself to start it.

    I know, I know. I need a life. :P

    Both of my daughters have been trying to get me to watch it for years but hubby wasn't interested. When he went overseas I started it on Netflix but then found out they were taking it off. I am bummed! I was just getting into it!

    If you need a life, then so do I! I am super bummed, mostly cuz I didn't know it was leaving on Feb 1 UNTIL FEB 1! Sorry for yelling.
    I'm caught up, but I like to rewatch eps, and I had planned on watching River's eps in (her) order. Boo hoo!

    BOOO! That was the only reason we were hanging onto Netflix. Now we'll cancel for sure. We signed up with Amazon Prime, so we'll just be doing that from now on!

    I totally understand. My husband and daughters are big Doctor Who fans and I appreciate it even though I hadn't been compelled to watch all of it. I was shocked to hear it was being removed. Fortunately, my husband and daughters have seen all the episodes (some more than once) and I've seen several.

    Does Amazon Prime have as good of a selection as Netflix?

    Dr Who is one of my favorites as a background program - that I can get involved in something else but catch back up - and I almost always catch something I didn't notice before when re-watching (funny comments that make sense after watching other later ones, etc)!

    My 20 year old son is majorly bummed. I'm certain he'll live, but I'm not sure I want to live with him!!

    I'm the only one in the house that likes Dr Who so it's another thing I watch on my laptop. I'm in the UK so I get to see it as it airs.

    WHAT!! It's a tradition for us as well. DS and I even waited to watch the latest season so we could binge instead of waiting a week between shows! Are you telling me it's gone?

    My life is over! Well, maybe not OVER, but close. LOL.

    I will probably find a way to purchase them all. One of the first shows hubby and I watched together when we were dating. I am way behind.

    It depends on what you like. Amazon has more PBS, in fact I wouldn't be surprised if Dr. Who ends up in Amazon.
    Yes, another thing where we have both services.

    If anybody finds out if Dr. Who ends up on Amazon, let me know!!! I had just started getting into it when they took it off.

    That's okay. Everyone is raving about Elementary in another thread and it drives me nuts!
