How to watch Doctor Who series 10 online outside UK

To watch Doctor Who Series 10 at the first possible opportunity you can stream it live on BBC iPlayer.

If you’re outside the UK then you’re going to need to sign up for a VPN service otherwise you’ll be blocked.

A VPN allows you to alter your online location and bypass any geographical blocks.

A VPN service will cost you between £4 – £7 per month depending on how long you sign up for.

We’ve tested a range of services and found the following three to be the best.

  1. IPVanish – Best and fastest
  2. Overplay – Easy to use
  3. ExpressVPN – Good customer support

All you need to do is click on one of their names and sign-up.

To watch Doctor Who follow the instructions below, we’ve used IPVanish on a PC as an example.

  1. Download the Windows software from the Apps area of the IPVanish website.
  2. Double-click the downloaded file to install the software.
  3. Run the installed IPVanish software.
  4. Click United Kingdom (1.).
  5. Click Connect (2.).IPVanish UK Server

It takes around 15 – 30 seconds for the IPVanish software to connect. Once it has connected you will get a notification.

That’s all there is to it, all you need to do now is visit the BBC iPlayer website at the time Doctor Who Series 10 is being shown and you’ll be able to watch live.

If you miss the live showing then you can also watch on catch-up after.

Below is an example video to show you just how easy it is.

Doctor Who Series 10 Trailer

On the 13th March 2017, the latest full trailer for the series was released.

Doctor Who Series 10 Spoilers

Spoiler alert, click to find out more...
There has been very little information leaking out about the new Series 10 which has left many guessing.

The latest trailer has started speculation across the internet and these are some of the conclusions.

In the latest artwork released with the trailer, a large red planet was spotted suggesting Doctor Who could be travelling to Mars. If this is correct The Ice Warriors could be making an appearance. Although with users suggesting it could be Gallifrey, judgement is still out.

Time travel to Victorian England could be on the cards and a frozen river Themes with a giant serpent rearing it’s head if speculation is correct.

A fire engulfed city is shown but commentators noted that it doesn’t look like a city on earth so perhaps a large fire may take place on one of the far off planets.

Finally what viewers think is Earth is depicted on the image but those in the Doctor Who know suggest it could depict Mondas and if those thoughts are true we could see new Cybermen about.

What about watching on a mobile or tablet?

It’s possible to watch on a mobile phone or tablet but you will already need to have the BBC iPlayer app installed on your device – it’s not possible to do this easily outside the UK.

If you do already have it installed then you can download the Android or iOS app for the VPN provider you signed up to from the Google Play Store or the Apple Store.

Then connect to the United Kingdom and then launch the BBC iPlayer app.


Occasionally some VPN servers do not work with BBC iPlayer or the BBC iPlayer app.

All you need to do is select a different location in the United Kingdom.

For example, if you selected London on IPVanish and it didn’t work, you can try Liverpool, Manchester, Belfast or any of the other locations.
