Today In DOCTOR WHO History: September 7th

There is something just so incredibly wrong with this picture.

September 7th
Welcome once again to our daily round-up of the Doctor Who episodes that received their debut broadcast on this day throughout the show's long history.

September 7th sees two episodes from the classic series premiering, with the first one back in 1968 where 5.9 million Second Doctor fans tuned in for part 5 of The Dominators. In the final installment of the opening story from Doctor Who's sixth season, the Doctor hatches a plan to intercept the Dominators' atomic seed pod as it is dropped into the planet's core. If he fails, the whole of Dulkis will be destroyed. Spoiler alert, he doesn't!

And now onto 1987 and the arrival of the Seventh Doctor's era. So what can be said about Time and the Rani? Let's just say it's a good job The Twin Dilemma exists so that Time and the Rani is not consistently voted the worst Doctor Who debut story of all time. Part One was broadcast on Monday September 7th 1987 at 6:35pm, and the prospect of a new Doctor manged to entice 5.1 million viewers to tune in. Almost a million of them would not return the following week! Poor Sylv. Season 24 was not the best, was it?

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.
