Today In DOCTOR WHO History: April 2nd

A view to die for.

April 2nd
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).

First up today it's a trip back to 1966 when 7.3 million people were watching the opening episode of The Celestial Toymaker, which, along with parts two and three, is still sadly missing presumed wiped. Twelve years later, in 1977, 9.3 million were tuned in to part six of The Talons of Weng-Chiang.

We then flash forward to some new-Who when it really was new! The second ever episode of the revived series, 2005's End of the World, was watched by 7.97 million viewers. Those who switched over to BBC Three straight afterwards could watch the delightful Doctor Who Confidential for the episode, titled Aliens: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.

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.
