Today In DOCTOR WHO History: July 17th

The Monk meddled in things Time Lords were meant to leave alone.

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).

July 17th
Summer is here and Doctor Who, in the large part, isn't! Only one episode has been broadcast on July 17th throughout the show's long, long history and that was back in 1965. The episode was part 3 of The Time Meddler titled A Battle of Wits. Debuting at 5:40pm that glorious Saturday, and watched by 7.7 million viewers.

Along with episodes 1 and 4 of The Time Meddler, part 3 was reported missing from the BBC Film and Videotape Library following an audit in 1978. Edited telerecordings of all four episodes were returned to the BBC from Nigeria in 1985, and complete copies of episodes 1 and 3 were finally returned in 1992.

Which means you can watch it today, if you so choose to.

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.
