Today In DOCTOR WHO History: June 27th

Today in Doctor Who history makes very little sense.

Welcome to our daily round-up of the Doctor Who episodes which received their premiere broadcast on this day throughout the show's long history, along with anything else of note that may have taken place. You can click on any red text to read our full retrospectives/reviews for that episode, and note that all viewing figures listed are for UK broadcasts (unless otherwise stated).

Thank goodness for the First Doctor! If it wasn't for the original pulling incredibly long shifts the Summer months of Doctor Who schedules would be completely void of Doctor Who episodes. As it is, it's still pretty sparse and only one episode of Doctor Who has been broadcast on this day throughout the show's long history. So if you were tuned into BBC1 at 5.40pm on Saturday June 27th 1964 then you, and 6.9 million others, would've caught the second part of The Sensorites (titled The Unwilling Warriors).

Why not watch it again to day in celebration? (It's OK, you don't have to).

And before we sign off, how about a quick fun fact from The Sensorites for you?

During this adventure, the Doctor loses his original coat and replaces it with a cloak. Marking the first, of many, permanent costume changes for the Doctor on the series.

So now you know.

That's it for today. Join us again tomorrow for another round-up of the episodes broadcast, the spin-offs, the special events, the birthday's celebrated and anything else of note that went down on this day in Doctor Who history.
