Online petition for a German dub of the classic seriesBookmark and Share

Fans in Germany have started a petition to help get the newly-started german Netflix to dub and release the classic series of Doctor Who.

The petition, started by Andrè Schott, reads:

Dubbing and release of Classic Doctor Who in German
German fans of Doctor Who have been waiting for a very long time to see the classic series, which ran from 1963 to 1989, dubbed into German. There are 26 seasons, but only 5 of them are available in German. We request a German dub and a release of the remaining 21 seasons. The current DVD distributer Pandastorm Pictures already stated their interest in more releases of the classic series. However, they are unable to finance the dub on their own. This is why they need the support of a TV broadcaster. Netflix just started in Germany, is still looking for new content and already offers all of the new series of Doctor Who. They would be perfectly suited for a release of the classic episodes. (Translated from German)

To this day there are only Seasons 22 to 26 and the TV Movie available with a German dub. German DVD distributer Pandastorm Pictures is going to release those seasons in boxed sets, starting this November. Der Siebte Doktor Volume 1 (Season 24) can be pre-ordered from Amazon Germany.
