August 15th
Our daily round-up of all things Doctor Who related has suffered of late, primarily down to the summer schedules and lack of bonefide Who episodes, but fear not the First Doctor is here with another story from his 42-week long first season! How about that Chris Chibnall, eh? We can't even get a dozen out of your team.

So back we go to 1964 and the pure historical adventure The Reign Of Terror. Episode 2 of the six part story, titled the Guests of Madame Guillotine, was broadcast at 5:14pm to an audience of 6.9 million viewers and saw Ian, Barbara and Susan given the option of death under the blade of the guillotine or to watch John Barrowman Live at the Albert Hall on DVD. It was an impossible choice for poor Barbara to make.


Fortunately the Doctor, having managed to escape from a burning farmhouse, is on his way with earplugs to rescue them.

And that's all we have for today. It's down to those pesky summer schedules but at least there was one episode (eh, Mr Chibnall?). 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.
