Today In DOCTOR WHO History: October 28th

Happy Birthday to you...

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 28th
It's Matt Smith's birthday today. Born October 28th 1982 he is the youngest actor to have played the Doctor so far, although Jodie Whittaker is just four months older but, obviously, cast later than him. Happy birthday to you Mr. Smith.

And we have another birthday of note today too...

Remember Harry Sullivan? Of course you do. One of the finest companions from the seventies and all round good bloke. Harry was played by Ian Marter who was born on this day in 1944. Sadly we also lost Ian on this day in 1986 at the age of just 44.

Episodes Broadcast
And now for the main business of rounding up the episodes which received their premiere broadcast today, October 28th, in Doctor Who history, and we have three of them from across the years, starting with episode five of the Second Doctor adventure The Abominable Snowmen. Broadcast in 1967 at 5:24pm and watched by 7.20 million viewers, which was 1.4 million less than were tuned in to part one of The Stones of Blood eleven years later.

Lastly for today, 8.22 million viewers tuned in on Sunday October 28th 2018 for the Thirteenth Doctor's adventure Arachnids In The U.K.

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.
