Today In #DoctorWho History: November 15th

Wall-E? Johnny 5? No, it's Gadget...

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 15th
It's back to the 'all teeth and curls' era to start today's round-up of Doctor Who episodes, and there's not just one but two fine Fourth Doctor stories both coming to an end on November 15th in their respective years. From 1975 we have part four Pyramids of Mars, broadcast at 5:45pm and watched by 11.7 million viewers, and five years later the fourth part of Full Circle had 5.5 million pairs of eyed watching.

Moving into the 1980's, 1986 to be exact, and the Sixth Doctor is facing part eleven of The Trial Of A Time Lord, which saw 5.3 million tune in for the third installment of Terror of the Vervoids. Three years later and the end of classic Who was nigh when part four of The Curse of Fenric arrived on this day with just 4.2 million sets of eyed tuned in to witness.

In 2009 another era was coming to the end - that of the Tenth Doctor. But before The End of Time 10.32 million viewers would take a dip in The Waters of Mars.

Finally for this day we have episode one of Goodbye, Sarah Jane Smith, a story which, unsurprisingly, comes from the CBBC series The Sarah Jane Adventures, broadcast in 2010 on Monday November 15th. The 0.82 million viewers would only have to wait 24 hours to catch the second part.

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.
