Today In DOCTOR WHO History: July 28th

Anyone for lemonade?

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 28th
Today in Doctor Who history we jump straight into spin-off territory, because an installment of Torchwood: Miracle Day is the only Who-related episode broadcast throughout the show's history on July 28th.

The episode in question is part 3, titled Dead of Night. It had premiered on Starz (who co=produced this series with the BBC) in the USA 6 days earlier, but when it received it's debut broadcast on BBC One in 2011 at 9:02pm it was watched by 5.49 million viewers - over 5 million more than its US ratings.

"Fizzy in the UK, flat in the US." 
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.
