August 17th
Well it's another quiet day in Doctor Who history but there was one episode of the show which received its debut broadcast. For that we go all the way back to 1968 for episode 2 of The Dominators.

See that Second Doctor up there? Well he's got himself in a right old pickle and make no mistaking. After trying to wash his hands for 20 seconds in, what he thought was, one of those newfangled Dyson sinks, it turns out it was all a cunning trap! 5.9 million viewers tuned in to find out what happened when the Doctor and Jamie were held captive and forced to listen to John Barrowman's Greatest Hits CD on repeat. Possibly. The Second Doctor's clearly not enjoying it, and as for his young companion... was more than the poor wee Scot could handle.

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.
