Today In DOCTOR WHO History: December 11th

Happy days at Dalek band camp as the three metallic friends roast marshmallows whilst reminiscing about past genocides together...

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).

December 11th
One of only three surviving episodes from the twelve part First Doctor adventure The Daleks' Master Plan was broadcast this day in 1965. Episode 5, entitled Counter Plot was watched by 9.90 million viewers, and it is, sadly, the only episode of official Doctor Who to be broadcast on December 11th across the years. We say 'official' as there is also this...

That's Richard E Grant's Shalka-Doctor above. He's looking mighty pissed as he signed up to be the official Ninth incarnation of the Doctor and then was struck from canon before any of his animated adventures had even been broadcast! Reason being, old Aunty BEEB had decided to bring Doctor Who back in all its Russell T Davis/Christopher Eccleston glory and work was already underway on the new series, so with a subdued release the fifth part of the 40th Anniversary animated web adventure Scream of the Shalka arrived onto the BBC's Doctor Who website at noon on December 11th 2003.

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.
