Today In #DoctorWho History: November 19th

We now go over live to post-Brexit Britain...

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 19th
We usually start these round-ups with the actual Doctor Who episodes broadcast on this day but, before we get to them, let's mix things up with a trio of spin-offs...

First up, we go post-watershed with the Torchwood team who are enjoying a 'nice' day out of the city in the Countrycide. Broadcast in 2006 at 10:00pm, this episode was watched by 1.22 million viewers. The following year we have 1.1 million tuned in for part two of The Sarah Jane Adventures story The Lost Boy. Then, in 2009 it's another episode of The Sarah Jane Adventures, and that would be part one of The Gift which was watched by 0.95 million viewers. Finally, we head online to BBC Three for the Saturday November 19th 2016 release of episode six of Class, the story was titled Detained.

Those episodes are coming up next but first, a birthday celebration. William Russell, who played First Doctor companion Ian Chesterfield, Chesterzoo, Chesterton was born on this day in 1924. Happy birthday Sir!

Episodes Broadcast
Episode three of the Second Doctor's debut adventure The Power of the Daleks was broadcast on this day in 1966 and watched by 7.5 million viewers. They were the lucky ones as the BBC quite stupidly wiped the tapes meaning no-one else got to see it. Until recently that is, when the new animated version was released. We reviewed episode three of such here. Also on this day we have part four of Image of the Fendahl, which first aired in 1977 and was watched by 9.1 million viewers.

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.
