Today In DOCTOR WHO History: July 8th

Hankies at the ready...

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 8th
Oh my! Parting is such sweet sorrow.

Yes, on July 8th in 2006 there wasn't a dry eye in the house. And what a house it was! 8.22 million tuning in to say goodbye to Rose in the series two finale Doomsday.

And if you turned your televisual box over to BBC Three at 7:45pm on Saturday July 8th 2006 you could've watched that week's installment of Doctor Who Confidential. This special episode for the series two finale was suitable titled Finale.

Now, why not take a guess, a wild stab in the dark at what the episode title is for the third night of Torchwood: Children of Earth.

That's right, it's Captain Jack's Crazy Adventures With The 456!

Of course not, it's the much more sensible Day Three, which saw a slight increase in viewers to 6.56 million when broadcast on this day at 9pm on BBC One.

But wait, there's more...

We're not done with Captain Jack and co. just yet as his American adventure is just about to get underway in Torchwood: Miracle Day. Episode one, titled The New World, would receive its UK premiere on July 14th 2011 (when 6.59 million viewers tuned in), but six days earlier on July 8th those lucky people in the U.S.A. who had the premium cable channel Starz got to see it first (sadly, only 1.51 million bothered).

And by the way, the reason Eve & John are laughing is because they've just read the script for the final episode of the season. Earth's Vagina my arse!

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.
