A series of digitally remastered episodes of Doctor Who are now available to rent through Facebook.

By using Facebook credits, users visiting the official Doctor Who page will be able to stream a selection of nine stories - each containing several episodes. These will include classics such as Tomb of the Cybermen, as well as modern day episodes like Silence in the Library and End of the World.

The Greatest Show in the Galaxy will be a Facebook exclusive.

The episodes will be available for Facebook users across Europe, the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Once rented, episodes will be available to view for 48 hours.

"As we have grown internationally, we've seen through our Facebook channel that fans who are loving the new series are asking for a guide into our rich Doctor Who back catalogue," explained John Smith, BBC Worldwide's chief executive. "Our approach to Facebook and other leading edge platforms is to be right there alongside them in fostering innovation.

"We see this service as a perfect way to give our fans what they want, as well as a great way for them to get their fix between now and the autumn when series six continues."
