Episodes Broadcast
It's another day in Doctor Who history when only the First Doctor came out to play, and so we have to go all the way back to 5:39pm on Saturday July 10th 1965 for part two of The Time Meddler (titled The Meddling Monk) to join the 8.8 million viewers for some classic Who shenanigans.

Back in 2009, the unsurprisingly titled Day Five of Torchwood: Children of Earth Day wrapped up the week long event series, with 6.73 million viewers tuning in for the conclusion.

And, finally, the Master's turned all the gas on...

Born July 10th 1970, its John Simm's birthday today. Master opposite both the Tenth and Twelfth Doctors, Simm is also well known for playing Sam Tyler in Life on Mars. His other television credits include: State of Play, The Lakes, Crime and Punishment, Exile, Prey and Cracker. His films include Wonderland, Everyday, Boston Kickout, Human Traffic and 24 Hour Party People.

Happy birthday to you!

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.
