Doctor Who fans can look forward to a trip back in time: The new, U.K.-centric digital streaming service BritBox on Tuesday released what it is claiming to be the largest digital catalog of classic Who episodes — shows broadcast from 1963 to 1989 — available in the U.S.

BritBox will also feature specially curated classic Doctor Who playlists like “Monsters” and “Companions,” so viewers can witness the Doctor’s most epic battles through the years against classic foes like Daleks, Cybermen, and Autons. Finally, the streaming service will soon feature audio of “lost” Doctor Who episodes.

Doctor Who continues to be a global phenomenon that spans generations,” BritBox president Soumya Sriraman said in a statement. “Whovians in the U.S. now have a one-stop-shop for the most comprehensive catalog of Classic Doctor Who to either relive the exciting adventures with their favorite Classic Doctors, or experience for the first time how it all began.”

BritBox is a digital video subscription service created by BBC Worldwide, the commercial arm of the BBC, and ITV, the U.K.’s biggest commercial broadcaster.

The new season of Doctor Who premieres on BBC America on April 15.
