Today In DOCTOR WHO History: March 26th


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).

March 26th
Today starts back in 1966 when 7.3 million people were watching part four of Dodo Gets A Cold, or The Ark (this episode entitled The Bomb) as it's more commonly known. Twelve years later, in 1977, 10.1 million deerstalker-lovers tuned in to part five of The Talons of Weng-Chiang. Elementary.

Oh, and on this day in 2005 we were off and running as Christopher Eccleston made his debut as the Ninth Doctor, and Doctor Who returned to our screens in an episode entitled Rose, courtesy of Russell 'Tussle' Davies. Broadcast at 7pm on BBC1, 10.81 million tuned in to catch Graham Norton talking over the start of the show thanks to a sound mix up with the live broadcast feed of BBC Three's Strictly Dance Fever. And it was BBC Three that became home to Doctor Who Confidential, which began its 6 season run at 7:45pm, straight after Rose had ended, with an opening episode called Bringing Back The Doctor.

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.
