Today In #DOCTORWHO History: November 12th

So I said to him Roy, I said "one day that film can will be worth something, it will". And you know what Roy? I'll tell you what. He still through it in the bloody skip anyway. Sent it to the tip he did. And it makes me so angry Roy, I just want to exterminate something.

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 12th
Episode two of the Second Doctor's debut adventure The Power of the Daleks was broadcast for the one and only time in the UK on this day in 1966 and watched by 7.8 million viewers. It's been missing from the BBC archive now for 50ish years (Have you got it? Check down the back of the sofa just in case), but received a very nice animated release in 2016.

One other actual Doctor Who episode for today, and it's part three of Image of the Fendahl, which first aired in 1977 and was watched by 7.9 million viewers.

But we're not done yet as it's spin-off time....

A full compliment of Doctor Who spin-off episodes have received their premiere broadcast on November 12th across the years. Firstly we have the Torchwood team away with the fairies in Small Worlds. Broadcast in 2006 at 10:00pm, it was watched by 1.26 million viewers.

The following year we have 1.77 million tuned in for part one of The Sarah Jane Adventures story The Lost Boy. Then, in 2009 it's another episode of The Sarah Jane Adventures, part one of Mona Lisa's Revenge was watched by 1.12 million viewers.

Finally, on Saturday 12th November 2016 the fifth episode Class was made available to view on the BBC Three section of the iPlayer. It was titled Brave-ish Heart and, like all the episodes of Class, no official viewing figures were released.

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.
