Not sure that I dare go above the line to the Doctor Who section (which should be marked 'Here there be dragons') but I understand that all the old episodes of Doctor Who will be available from Boxing Day.

Will sign up and see if there are any other old school genre gems.

Might be worth a 30 day trial if they have Sapphire and Steel but there's no way I'd subscribe.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Blake's 7. I hope they open their vaults and make available shows that haven't been available previously. The beauty of streaming is that you can just subscribe for the odd month and cane it then move on to the next one. I suspect that I will stay subscribed to Netflix and Now TV all the time, Disney+ whenever there is a Marvel show on, Amazon Prime whenever I can get £20 off for a year and everything else only when they have a show on I want to see.

Yeah, I'll do much the same except its Sky and Netflix I'll stay subscribed to (now I get Netflix through the sky q box it's actually cheaper than having Netflix separately). After over a year of rolling Amazon Prime free trials the trick to do that stopped working but my wife has a student account through work (perks of working at Cambridge University) so a month is only four quid. I'll see how it goes with Disney +.

Had a look at the Britbox launch box sets and it is pretty much all from this century. Will wait until Doctor Who is added until I do my free trial. Bit of an own goal that the thing that most people are excited about isn't available on day 1.

Any word on Blake's 7 yet? I notice the bootleg vids which have been left on YouTube for years and years have all been taken down following a BBC copyright claim
