Today In DOCTOR WHO History: November 27th

Prepare yourself for some Noel...

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 27th
We start today with a sad fact. Episode three of The Daleks' Master Plan (entitled Devil's Planet) is missing from the BBC archives, so only the 10.3 million people lucky enough to tune in on this day in 1965 would have been able to fully appreciate it.

Then, another sad fact. A whopping 13.6 million people tuned into watch part two of Dimensions In Time when it aired during Noel's House Party on Saturday November 27th 1993, making it one of the top ten highest watched episodes of Doctor Who ever! (sigh)

At noon on November 27th 2003, episode three of the 40th Anniversary animated web adventure Scream of the Shalka was released onto the BBC's Doctor Who website. It would be three hours later by the time it had buffered!

And we wrap up today with a very big hoorah for the lady that started it all, in a sense. Verity Ann Lambert OBE, Doctor Who's very first producer, was born on this day in 1935. She's pictured above in the centre, surrounded by the original TARDIS team (and a rather worse for wear looking Jacqueline Hill who's maybe had one too many cheeky vimtos).

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.
