September 17th
It's a bumper day in Doctor Who history and lots to cover in our daily round-up of all things that went down on September 17th. Starting, as ever, with the episodes that received their debut broadcast, and back in 1966 the second episode of the First Doctor's pure historical adventure The Smugglers was watched by 4.9 million viewers.

Then in 1977, the Fourth Doctor continued to put up mighty impressive numbers, with 9.8 million viewers tuning in to part 3 of Horror of Fang Rock.

For our third and final episode of Doctor Who broadcast on this day we go back to 2011 and join the 6.77 million viewers sat watching the Eleventh Doctor in The God Complex.

It's wireless time now and the fourth part of the Third Doctor radio adventure The Paradise Of Death was broadcast from 6:32pm on BBC Radio 5 Live on this day in 1993.

Finally for today, if you wanted a bit more of The God Complex and liked a bit of Doctor Who Confidential then you were in for a treat as at 8pm on BBC Three, September 17th 2011, saw the broadcast of Heartbreak Hotel where the Confidential team went backstage on that night's episode and spoke with writer Toby Whithouse.

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.
