Doctor Doctor‘s 4th season will air in the UK from mid-November, before it screens in Australia.
The drama starring Rodger Corser was held back by Nine and will now air in 2020, after its British premiere on UKTV’s Drama channel on November 16th.
That could make avoiding spoilers somewhat tricky, at least for those looking online.
A Nine spokesperson told TV Tonight that in order to get funding they have had to change the windowing.
“Doctor Doctor has enjoyed huge international success, and our overseas partners have always played a key role in how the series is financed,” Nine said in a statement.
“With the fourth season of Doctor Doctor (known as The Heart Guy in overseas markets) , the series will be broadcast in the UK before Australia. Drama is an international business and Nine and Easy Tiger are thrilled with the series’ ongoing popularity in the UK in particular.
“Local audiences won’t have to wait long for their next hit of Hugh, Penny, Meryl and the folks from Whyhope.”
Meanwhile Great Australian Railway Journeys, with host Michael Portillo, is now airing in the UK after being delayed by SBS to 2020. However this is a British-produced doco.
