For a while now, Netflix has been streaming many adventures from the original “classic” Doctor Who program, which ran for twenty-six seasons from 1963 to 1989. Folks who’ve enjoyed the modern Doctor Who program have sometimes tried to jump into the classic show via the Netflix online selection. But unfortunately, this has led to some confusion. For instance, the original story “An Unearthly Child” is not available on Netflix streaming and some of the stories it includes are part of larger arcs. This has led to me getting several e-mails asking for help, so I figured it would be a good idea to make a simple guide.
