April 23rd
On this day in 1966 7.8 million people were watching the fourth episode of The Celestial Toymaker (titled The Final Test). The Ninth Doctor then tackled the Slitheen in World War Three, the 2005 story drawing an audience of 7.98 million. Then it's the timey-wimey Eleventh Doctor adventure The Impossible Astronaut, which was broadcast in 2011 at 6:01pm and watched by 8.86 million viewers. And then, in 2016, this aired on BBC One at 6:15pm...

In a dry year for Doctor Who, Steven Moffat penned the mini-introduction for new companion Bill Potts, Friend From The Future. It would be almost exactly a year until she made her proper debut in the series ten opening adventure The Pilot.

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.
