Today In DOCTOR WHO History: October 13th

Clown alert!

Click on any red text to read our full retrospectives/reviews for that episode. All viewing figures are for UK premiere broadcasts unless otherwise stated.

October 13th
Although only one actual episode has received its premiere broadcast today in Doctor Who history, it's a very special one ratings wise. A whopping 15.4 million people tuned into BBC1 at 6.04pm on Saturday October 13th 1979, all eager to watch part three of City of Death. The hefty figure is the second highest watched episode of Doctor Who in broadcast history and was thanks in part to a strike over at ITV (dirty word).

Then, it's Stephen King's 'It' a Sarah Jane Adventures episode for you, and one you likely wouldn't want to be watching if you have even a smidgen of coulrophobia. From 2008 and season two, it's episode two of The Day of the Clown which was watched by 1.28 million terrified viewers!

Join us again tomorrow for another round-up of the episodes broadcast, the spin-offs aired, the special events, the birthday's celebrated and anything else of note that went down on this day in Doctor Who history.
