April 30th
On this day in 1966 6.5 million people were watching the opening episode of The Gunfighters (titled A Holiday For The Doctor), which is the sole classic-Who story for the day. We flash forward to new-Who and have both 2005's Dalek and 2011's Day of the Moon, watched by 8.63 million and 7.3 million BBC One viewers respectively. Their equally respective Doctor Who Confidential episodes followed, with The Daleks and Breaking The Silence premiering on BBC Three after the main show's broadcast.

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.
