VUDU is a US-based video-on-demand streaming service launched in April 2011 (and is currently owned by Walmart).


A selection of Doctor Who DVDs - both Classic and new series - are available to purchase (rent or own) as digital copies and view online from circa February 2017. The price was $6.99 per story (irrespective of episode count), or $1.99 per individual episode.

Added later were the fully animated The Power of the Daleks (from November 2016) and Shada, plus the two Peter Cushing Dalek movies.

Somewhat confusingly, the selection menu for Doctor Who was divided up into "Seasons" based on the story production codes; for instance, the Patrick Troughton story The Krotons (code WW) was in "Season 2", the Pertwees (AAA to UUU) were all "Season 3", the Tom Bakers were "Season 4" or "Season 5" depending on the code - i.e. Pyramids of Mars (4G) was the former and The Ribos Operation (5A) was part of the latter, and similarly, the Davisons were either "Season 5" or "Season 6 - Castrovalva (5Z) was "5" and Time-Flight (6C) was in "6".
