September 5th
It's a bit of a quiet day today in Doctor Who history, but on days like today you can often count on the First Doctor for an episode when you need one. Fortunately September 5th is no exception as Sir William of Hartnell was at the helm of the TARDIS for the only episode of Doctor Who that has been broadcast on this day throughout the show's history.

Back in 1964 season 1 of Doctor Who was almost at an end, having begun over 9 months earlier! Honestly, these modern day Doctors don't know how easy they have it. Poor old Firsty had faced cavemen, Daleks, Aztecs, Sensorites, and now he found himself tied up in the French Revolution. Fortunately his time on the continent was almost over as it was the penultimate installment of the 1964 pure historical adventure The Reign Of Terror. Titled A Bargain of Necessity, it was broadcast at 5:31pm to an audience of 6.9 million viewers.

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.
