Today In DOCTOR WHO History: April 16th

Who wants the Slitheen back? Anyone?... Anyone??

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 16th
On this day in 1966 9.4 million people were watching the third episode of The Celestial Toymaker (titled The Dancing Floor), which, along with parts one and two, is still sadly missing presumed wiped. And then flashing forward to new-Who, we have the introduction of the Slitheen in the fourth episode of the revived series, 2005's Aliens of London, which was watched by 7.63 million. I Get A Sidekick Out Of You, that week's episode of Doctor Who Confidential, focused on Rose Tyler and the Doctor's traveling companions across the years - possibly because they didn't want to devote anymore time to the Slitheen than necessary?

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.
