Today In #DoctorWho History: November 21st

Anyone would think there was an anniversary looming...

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 21st
Back in 1964, to celebrate the very successful first year of Doctor Who, the most popular of enemies were bought back for their second outing, becoming the first returning 'monster' to feature on the series. The Dalek Invasion of Earth began on November 21st with an episode titled World's End. A whooping 11.4 million viewers were glued to their televisual sets witnessing the event.

Only one other episode of Doctor Who has premiered on this day, and that would be 2015's Face The Raven. It was watched by 4.48 million viewers overnight in the UK, after a week on time-shifting that total would rise to 6.06 million.

On Thursday November 21st 2013 An Adventure In Space And Time admirably recreated the early years of Doctor Who, and 2.71 million tuned into the BBC Two broadcast at 9:02pm that evening.

Then we have a bit of an oddity for you broadcast during the wilderness years, almost a year after the final episode of Survival aired. Sylvester McCoy and Sophie Aldred returned to the roles of Seventh Doctor and Ace for Search Out Space, an episode of the children's education programme Search Out Science. And you can 'enjoy' it below...

But is it canon?

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.
