British Broadcasting Corporation
This page and airdates table covers only the REPEATS that aired on the BBC channels. (The first run airdates for each Doctor Who serial are shown on the individual Story List pages.)
Doctor Who was repeated episodically or in compilations - sometimes during themed 'seasons', such as "The Five Faces of Doctor Who" - on BBC / BBC1, BBC2, and BBC4 (which always played its repeats during themed "Nights"). The Airdates table here is for those three channels only.
Other repeats on the BBC-owned cable and satellite stations, and digital channels are covered on their own dedicated pages:
Other UK-based non-BBC cable and satellite stations are linked HERE.

- Real-world BBC presenter Alex Macintosh appeared as himself in Day of the Daleks, although the TV station he represented wasn't named
- The Master watches an episode of the BBC series Clangers on a colour TV in The Sea Devils (although the station itself is not identified)
