September 21st
If that picture above doesn't scream 1980s Doctor Who then I don't know what does! But before we get to that bit of madness we have a date with the Second Doctor in our regular round-up of the episodes of Doctor Who broadcast on this day in the show's history.

And it's back to 1968 first for episode 2 of The Mind Robber which graced our screens at 5.18pm that Saturday evening. 6.5 million viewers of the nation's finest were tuned in. Lots of them grew up and got into Coronation Street, hence the reduction in viewers for the Seventh Doctor's era when the popular ITV soap was broadcast in the same time slot. Still, 4.3 million were there for part three of Time and the Rani on this day in 1987. Like Mel above, I suspect some of them didn't know what was happening half the time, but at least they tuned in, eh?

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.
