As of February 1, 2016, Doctor Who was removed from Netflix forever. This has meant to many that they’re now without their favorite Doctor travelling throughout time and space. The famous BBC kicked off in the 1960’s giving us high budget TV sci-fi with a time lord that possessed a Tardis that helped him navigate from each adventure to the next.
Other regions of Netflix are keeping the famous Doctor Who and Classic Doctor Who but in the US you’ll have to go searching for something else. In this post we’re going to give you 5 other TV series you should watch that share many similarities.
There are 4 seasons available
Not leaving Netflix in February is Doctor Who’s slightly maturer spin-off Torchwood. This show, which aired less often than Doctor Who, was hugely popular and a great success. Torchwood is a secret organisation that’s mentioned regularly in Doctor Who and after all, it’s an acronym for it. John Barrowman is the leader of the secret organization that hunts down aliens who threaten the human race. It’s got many of the same writers as Doctor Who has so it’s a must watch for all Doctor Who fans.

Fan-favorite Firefly that’s criminally been left at one series is the sci-fi adventure every child dreams of. The show takes place 500 years into the future and is about a ship that transports rejects, who desperately try to escape war with different factions.

Continuum ended its run in Canada last year and found a home on Netflix since then. The series features a detective in 2077 who travels back to the present to stop criminals from happening in the future. You can watch the complete 42-episode series on Netflix.

This is the only Netflix Original we’ve picked here but it fits the theme perfectly. Sherman and Mr Peabody were animated by Dreamworks and produced a spinoff television series for Netflix last year. This late-night show explores the lives of different figures and times.
There are 10 seasons available
If it’s the sciencey stuff that pulls you towards Doctor Who and the time travel fewer programs will deal with it with as much respect as Futurama does. The Simpsons' Matt Greoning series gives us a glimpse into the future. It’s spanned for 10 seasons so far and all are available on Netflix when Fry freezes himself to be woken up in the future and goes onto work at a delivery company.
