The terrifying true story of Dr. Christopher Duntsch comes to life in the latest Peacock original Dr. Death and we have all the details on how you can watch the new crime drama on TV or online.
"Based on Wondery's hit podcast of the same name, Dr. Death tells the story of a rising star in the Dallas, Texas medical community (played by Joshua Jackson) whose flourishing neurosurgery practice takes a turn for the worse when patients undergoing complex but routine spinal surgeries are left permanently maimed or dead.
As Dr. Duntsch's victims begin to pile up, two fellow physicians, neurosurgeon Robert Henderson (Alec Baldwin) and vascular surgeon Randall Kirby (Christian Slater), along with Dallas prosecutor Michelle Shughart (AnnaSophia Robb) set out to stop him once and for all."
Although the series is set in Dallas, it was actually filmed in New Mexico at the beginning of this year and all eight episodes will be available to watch at once on NBC's streaming service Peacock in the U.S. However, Dr. Death is also coming to Canada via Showcase though the show will release in September as opposed to in July.
The real life Dr. Duntsch killed a total of two patients while maiming several others while working at hospitals in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. While the first season of Wondery's Dr.Death podcast tells the story of Christoper Duntsch, the second season focuses on hematologist and oncologist Farid Fata who was convicted for prescribing chemotherapy to patients that did not have cancer. This means that Peacock could continue the series with a second season depending on the success of Dr. Death.
Whether you're a big fan of crime dramas or are familiar with the story of Dr. Christopher Duntsch, we'll show you exactly how to watch Dr. Death from anywhere in the world.

We have all the details on how you can watch Dr. Death in the U.S., Canada, the UK and Australia further below in this guide.

How to stream Dr. Death in the UK
Unfortunately for British viewers, none of the country's broadcasters or streaming services have yet to acquire the rights to the new crime drama. This means that you'll need to grab a VPN and follow the steps listed above to watch Dr. Death in the UK.
How to watch Dr. Death in Australia
Australian viewers will be able to watch Dr. Death just one day after it premieres in the U.S. on the streaming service Stan beginning on Friday, July 16. Stan offers three plans in the form of Stan Basic, Stan Standard and Stan Premium with the biggest difference between them being that you'll need the Premium plan for $17 per month to watch content in 4K. However, if watching Dr. Death in 1080p is fine with you, then the Basic plan for $10 per month should suffice. Regardless of which plan you choose, Stan offers a 30-day free trial so you can test out the service for yourself.
