July 25th
Good morning and thank you for joining us in another round-up of Doctor Who related shenanigans. We actually have a Who episode which received it's premiere broadcast on this day, a rarity for the Summer months, and it's from the good old dependable First Doctor. The episode in question is the penultimate installment of The Sensorites (titled Kidnap) which was broadcast on this day in 1964, and watched by 6.9 million viewers.

A skip and a jump forward from The Sensorites to July 25th 1985 and we find an oft-forgotten Sixth Doctor adventure which received its debut airing. Slipback, a BBC Radio 4 audio play, was recorded to fill the 18 month hiatus between seasons 22 and 23, and the first two 10 minute installments were broadcast on this day as part of the children's magazine show Pirate Radio Four.

But is it canon?

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.
