Today In DOCTOR WHO History: September 27th

Ouch! Some people take acupuncture way too far.

September 27th
Bumper, bumper, bumper day today in Doctor Who history, and we have five episodes to round-up for you. Starting with part one of Planet of Evil which got underway on Saturday September 27th 1975 at 5:45pm. It saw the Fourth Doctor and Sarah Jane head to Zeta Minor, accompanied by a mighty impressive 10.4 million viewers. Not quite as many were watching part one of Meglos, as just five years later the Fourth had lost over half the audience, with 5 million Brits tuning in...

...Still, that's better than the fourth part of The Trial Of A Time Lord. On this day in 1986 we were reaching the conclusion of The Mysterious Planet, and 3.7 million viewers were scratching their head at who this Valeyard guy really could be!

Heading North of the border for the Scottish Doctors section. First up it's back to 1989 and part four of Battlefield, which saw the Seventh Doctor and 4 million viewers wave goodbye to the Brigadier. And wrapping up this bumper Who-filled day it's the Twelfth Doctor taking on a part time job at Coal Hill School as The Caretaker. 6.82 million Danny Pink loving viewers (a-hem) tuned in to catch the marvelous Skovox Blitzer (a-hem). 

Oh, and if you really wanted more Skorvox action...

Going behind the scenes of The Caretaker, the Doctor Who Extra crew, along with Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman and Samuel Anderson share the secrets of the episode, and it was all for your viewing if you had pressed that little red button on your TV remote on this day in 2014.

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.
