Today In DOCTOR WHO History: August 31st

The new autumn collection from M&S was not the hit the company hoped it would be.

Click on any red text to read our full retrospectives/reviews for that episode. All viewing figures are for UK premiere broadcasts unless otherwise stated.

August 31st
It's a bit of a quiet day in Doctor Who history, but at least the Second Doctor showed up for a premiere broadcast on August 31st 1968. And so we have episode 4 of The Dominators (the first serial in the sixth season of Doctor Who, Patrick Troughton's last) which was broadcast at 5:14pm that Saturday afternoon. Not exactly the greatest story to launch a season with, yet 7.5 million viewers were still invested enough to tune-in.

One more thing of note for today...

In the glory days of Doctor Who minisodes, Sir Steven of Moffat gave us the mini-adventure Pond Life. The final part of the five part series was released onto the BBC's red button service on this day in 2012, and all five installments are edited together above for your enjoyment.

Join us again tomorrow for a busier 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.
