Today In DOCTOR WHO History: July 2nd

We re-rewind, when the crowd say Who-selecta!

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 2nd
Up above us you can see the First Doctor foreshadowing the cataclysmic audio event that was unearthed upon us all in the year 2000 in the form of Craig David. Old Firsty isn't sure what it is, but he does not like it! He's clutching his ears in an attempt to communicate to young Dodo the image he's seen in his head of the young British rapper's debut album cover Born To Do It. A warning to stay away at all costs. The potential ear-worm damage could be devastating!

Either that or it's a screen grab from episode 2 of The War Machines. Broadcast on this day in 1966 at 6:56pm, and watched by 4.7 million viewers, it is the only proper TV episode of Doctor Who that has premiered on July 2nd to date.

But there is this! A new audio adventure for the post-Series Two Torchwood team. Broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on July 2nd 2009 we have Torchwood: Golden Age. Of course, the actual golden age of Torchwood would come with the following year's Children Of Earth. It's hard to argue against that being the peak adventure for the Torchwood team, but if anyone would like to go into bat for Miracle Day being the pinnacle of the series then you're a better man than I.

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.
