Today In DOCTOR WHO History: August 4th

Got til it's gone...

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.

Aug 4th
Although we start today with something that's not actual episode of Doctor Who, August 4th is notable for giving us confirmation of the man who would be Who. The Twelfth Who, to be exact.

Yup, August 4th 2013 Zoe Ball announced that Peter Capaldi was to be the Twelfth Doctor about 20 minutes into Doctor Who Live: The Next Doctor. 6.1 million viewers tuned in for the UK broadcast, with millions more around the globe as the event was simulcast.

The fourth episode of Torchwood: Miracle Day finally arrived at U.K. shores, after it's premier occurring six days earlier on U.S. cable channel Starz. Titled Escape to L.A. 5.19 million viewers were tuned into BBC One on Thursday August 4th 2011 to catch Gwen and Jack in quite a pickle!

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.
