Today In DOCTOR WHO History: July 3rd

We said hello to the Meddling Monk today in Doctor Who history.

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 3rd
Although the Summer months are here, and the Doctor Who episodes are thin on the ground, we can always (mostly) rely upon old Firsty, as he was pulling 40+ week long seasons during his tenure! Try and get your modern Doctors to do more than 13 weeks, or 10 as the case is now, and they're get their lawyers on you for overworking them!

So, for our one and only bonefide Doctor Who episode broadcast on this day throughout the show's long history, we have the opening installment of The Time Meddler (titled The Watcher). Airing from 6:54pm on Saturday July 3rd 1965, 8.9 million viewers were watching.

If you had your wireless transistor set tuned to BBC Radio 4 at 2:15pm on this day in 2009, you would've heard the third Torchwood audio drama broadcast that week. Titled The Dead Line, from the pen of Phil Ford, and featuring the post-Season 2 Torchwood 'dream team' of Jack, Gwen and Ianto.

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.
