Netflix Bids Adieu To Its 'Doctor Who' Content | netflix

We hope you have copious amounts of popcorn handy because the TARDIS is taking off -- and flying right out of our Netflix accounts.

Netflix is removing all Doctor Who content (Classic Who, New Who, and any special content) from its servers. The change will take effect in February 2016.

You may remember a similar announcement from a year ago, when Netflix tried to pull a similar stunt with Luther and The Office (UK). At the time, fans went into an uproar, and the video titan brought these British favorites back fairly quickly.

Come on, Whovians, help us out here!

Although our adventures in time and space (that always seem to come back to Earthen London, but we're not complaining) will be replaced by episodes of Better Call Saul and The Lizzie Borden Chronicles (which I will admit sound pretty darned creepy and cool), there will still be a large police call box-shaped hole where both our hearts used to be.

And don't tell us it will heal. It's bigger on the inside.

Also coming to Netflix in February: Man Men season 7.2 and Judd Apatow's new series Love.

February 1 is bringing a slew of shows and movies to our Netflix lists, including Pokémon XY, Stardust, The Little Engine That Could, The Lizzie Borden Chronicles, Full Metal Jacket, and The Year Dolly Parton Was My Mom, among others.

February 2 will take us back in time with Little Foot as Netflix acquires The Land Before Time XIV: Journey of the Brave. We will also get a ton of Pokémon movies and seasons of Black & White and Indigo League.

There are several other shows coming to Netflix next month, including the anticipated Fuller House, which will be included starting February 26.

Although we will be getting a bunch of new content for our nights off, nothing will ever replace stepping into our favorite time travel machine.

And running. Don't forget the running!

Whovians, unite! Let's put a stop to Netflix's nefarious scheme!

It's probably just a ploy by the Master anyway, and we can take her!
