Netflix Renews (Most) BBC Series, Including 'Doctor Who,' 'Luther' & 'The Office'

Were you freaking out earlier this week when word spread about a number of BBC shows exiting Netflix at the end of the month? Well, you can relax (to some extent). According to the service, the following shows have been renewed and will be available for streaming after January 31: 

• Classic Doctor Who; 18 Collections
• Copper, Seasons 1-2
• Doctor Who, Seasons 1-7
• House of Cards Trilogy
• Keeping Up Appearances, Season 1
Luther, Seasons 1-3
• Monarch of the Glen, Seasons 1-6
• North & South
• The Buccaneers
• The Office (U.K.), Seasons 1-2
• Torchwood, Seasons 1-4
• Wallander, Seasons 1-3

A spokesperson did add, though, that “fans should plan to enjoy before February” the series “Faulty Towers,” “Blackadder,” “MI-5” and “Red Dwarf.” (And you should! All of them are great! At the very least, “Selma” star David Oyelowo is in “MI-5.”) Who knows if they’ll be back anytime soon. The point is, “Doctor Who” is safe. So breathe easy on that score, at least.
