November 8th
It's a bit of a bumper day today in Doctor Who history, and two classic episode from Fourth Doctor adventures get us underway with our round-up. Both are episode three of their respective stories, the first being 1975s Pyramids of Mars, broadcast at 5:46pm and watched by 9.4 million viewers. The second came five years later, when 1980s Full Circle had 5.9 million pairs of eyed watching.

Two regenerations later and the Sixth Doctor faced part ten of The Trial Of A Time Lord, which saw 4.6 million tune in for the second installment of Terror of the Vervoids.

Part three of The Curse of Fenric arrived on this day in 1989, watched by 4 million viewers, almost double that many were watching for the series eight finale Death In Heaven. Broadcast at 8pm on November 8th 2014, 7.6 million viewers tuned in. Hopefully they all pressed their red buttons afterwards...

A slightly longer than usual episode of Doctor Who Extra examined the return of iconic old enemies, the Cybermen and the Master/Missy, and included exclusive interviews with Peter Capaldi, Michelle Gomez, Steven Moffat and many more. All of which was available to view after Death In Heaven had finished on this day in 2014.

Finally for this day we have episode one of Lost in Time. The Sarah Jane Adventures story was broadcast in 2010 on Monday November 8th. The 0.98 million CBBC viewers would have to wait all of 24 hours to catch the second part. And we'll be there with them tomorrow...

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.
