Today In DOCTOR WHO History: April 1st


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 1st
Looks like young Jamie's put some itching powder in the Doctor's breaches. Well you can't blame the young Scot for wanting to celebrate April Fools Day, even if it does clash with the fourth and final installment of The Macra Terror. Back in 1967 8.4 million viewers tuned in to see the pranks, and then five years later 0.1 million more were glued to their sets  - literally, the Third Doctor reversed the polarity of the neutron flow in another case of April 1st hi-jinks to make all the televisions in the country super sticky - for the sixth part of The Sea Devils.

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.
