Today In DOCTOR WHO History: April 27th

I don't know who thought this was a good idea?

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 27th
On this day in 1968 7.2 million people were watching the Second Doctor in the opening episode of The Wheel In Space. Skip forward one regeneration and 6 years and we have the Third Doctor adventure The Monster of Peladon. Part six was broadcast on this day in 1974 and watched by 8.1 million.

Russell T Davis, the man who steered the good ship Who out of the "wilderness years" and back to our screens, was born on this day in 1963. April 27th is also Jenna Coleman's birthday. Born this day in 1986 she would of course go on to co-star opposite Matt Smith in today's new-Who offering - that would be 2013's Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS, which was broadcast at 6.29pm and watched by 6.5 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.
