Today In DOCTOR WHO History: April 13th

I speak Russian now. Russian is cool.

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).

April 13th
Today sees the first of three Doctor birthdays that take place within a week, as April 13th 1951 is the day Peter Davison was born. His Doctor had the day off today but back in 1968 5.9 million people were watching the Second Doctor in episode five of Fury From The Deep. Skip forward one regeneration and 6 years and we have the Third Doctor adventure The Monster of Peladon. Part four was broadcast on this day in 1974 and watched by 7.2 million.

It's a huge jump of nearly 40 years for our next episode broadcast on this day. That would be 2013's Cold War, broadcast at 6.03pm and watched by 7.37 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.
