Today In DOCTOR WHO History: July 29th

That's definitely not Cardiff!

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 29th 
As it says above, all viewing figures are for UK premiere broadcasts unless otherwise stated. And right now we've got to state that the only Doctor Who related programme to receive its premiere broadcast on July 29th throughout the show's history took place in the USA. That would be, of course, Torchwood: Miracle Day. Episode 4 debuted on the U.S. premioum cable channel Starz on July 29th 2011, and it went under the title of Escape to L.A. Just .94 million viewers were tuned in that Friday evening for, what felt like, the first filler episode of the 10 part series.

Up there is David Warner, who was born on this day in 1941. As well as having a long and distinguished appearing in film, including roles in The Omen, Time Bandits, Tron, and Titanic, he has played a variety of roles in various Star Trek iterations, and in 2009 lent his vocal talents to Doctor Who providing the voice of Lord Azlok in the animated adventure Dreamland. Later he returned to TV Who opposite the Eleventh Doctor, playing Professor Grisenko in Cold War, and has also appeared in many audio plays for Big Finish Productions, including playing an alternate Doctor in their Unbound range.

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.
