Army of Ghosts (2006)

Viewers in India are set to get initiated into the world of Doctor Who when all eight series blaze onto their screens starting May 15, 2015. Doctor Who will air on FX, a channel owned by Star India Private Limited, broadcasting into a million homes in India. The deal, inked between Star India and BBC Worldwide India marks the largest volume sale of Doctor Who in the country.
“This partnership marks a milestone for us,” said Myleeta Aga, SVP and GM of BBC Worldwide in India. “It will be the first time Whovians in India will be able to participate in the global Doctor Who phenomenon. And it is also the first time we’ve concluded a major deal with Star India. We are very glad to be working with Star India to bring this very iconic series (including series 9 which is currently being filmed) to viewers in India.”
Brian Minchin, Executive Producer, Doctor Who says: “We are delighted that Doctor Who is going to hit the screens of FX. We’re hugely proud of the show and The Doctor’s adventures in time and space. Hold on tight – there are thrills and wonders ahead! Over 51 years ago, the very first episode of Doctor Who was directed by Waris Hussein, born in Lucknow. I like to think we’ve finally come full circle with the new modern series launching in India on FX.”
