FX took up the mantle of Doctor Who in India since May this year, after BBC Entertainment ceased transmission in the country in 2012. Shown daily, viewers have been able to experience the latest adventures of the Doctor over the last few months, leading to the debut of Peter Capaldi this weekend as the channel shows the whole of the eighth series over two afternoons - leading to the premiere of The Magician's Apprentice on Sunday 4th October 2015 at 11:00pm.
The announcement means that India is now the ninth region in the world to see the new adventures of the Doctor, currently being enjoyed by the UK (BBC One), USA (BBC America), Canada (SPACE), Asia (BBC Entertainment), New Zealand (PRIME), Australia (ABC), Benelux (BBC First), and Finland (YLE2). Denmark (DR3), South Africa (BBC First) and Germany (FOX) are due to air the series in the coming weeks.
You can keep up with the latest broadcasts of Doctor Who around the world via This Week in Doctor Who.
