Today In DOCTOR WHO History: November 18th

Even as a child, Steven couldn't quite grasp the concept of hide & seek...

Welcome to our daily round-up of the Doctor Who episodes which received their premiere broadcast on this day throughout the show's long history, along with anything else of note that may have taken place. You can click on any red text to read our full retrospectives/reviews for that episode, and note that all viewing figures listed are for UK broadcasts (unless otherwise stated).

November 18th
Love him or hate him (and we're most definitely in the first camp), the man who would grow up to be Executive Producer of Doctor Who and oversee both the Matt Smith & Peter Capaldi years was born on November 18th 1961. So we kick things off today with a very big happy birthday to Sir Steven of Moffat. Look, we've even ordered you a present for delivery...

Episodes Broadcast
On this day in Doctor Who history, episode two of the Second Doctor adventure The Ice Warriors received its premiere broadcast back in 1967 at 5:24pm and was watched by 7.1 million viewers. That figure is just 0.5 million less than were tuned in to part four of The Stones of Blood eleven years later.

Also on November 18th, but this time in the year 2018, we were treated (is that the right word?) to one of the more interesting (again, not sure about that) episodes from series eleven of Doctor Who, Kerblam! 7.46 million viewers were witness to the less than subtle Amazon analogies.

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.
