Today In DOCTOR WHO History: April 15th


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 15th
Back to 1967 for episode 2 of the Second Doctor story The Faceless Ones, a story which was watched by 6.4 million viewers. Then in 1972 the Third Doctor starred in episode 2 of The Mutants drawing an audience of 7.8 million. 

All the way forward to 2006, and after spending most of The Christmas Invasion in bed the Tenth Doctor's era got underway properly with the opening episode of series two. The "chavtastic" New Earth was broadcast at 7:16pm and watched by 8.62 million viewers (with the Doctor Who Confidential episode New New Doctor following on BBC Three). Series two wasn't the only series that began on April 15th, as series ten, Peter Capaldi's final year as the Twelfth Doctor began on this day in 2017 with The Pilot. 6.68 million viewers said hello to Bill Potts for the first time.

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.
