The new series of Doctor Who will be available in Australia as soon as it has started broadcasting in the United Kingdom, via iView

Unlike last year, when the series was transmitted in the early hours on ABC One, this year the station has returned to releasing each episode on the streaming service iView, as it is transmitted in the UK. The first episode, The Magician's Apprentice, will be released on Sunday 20th September at 5.30am Sydney time. The episode will be available to view throughout the day, before it is broadcast on ABC at 7.40pm.

The broadcast time in the UK has yet to be confirmed, but the ABC time implies it will be broadcast in the UK at 7.30pm on Saturday evening.

Each episode of the series will be released as it is broadcast, with the time changing due to the varying UK broadcast schedule and daylight saving changes during the series.

Meanwhile Prime in New Zealand has announced that it will première the series on Sunday 20th at 7:30pm.
