Today In DOCTOR WHO History: April 6th

"I've got a lightsaber". "I've got a leaf".

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 6th
On the date that Mark Strickson - aka Turlough, companion to the Fifth Doctor - was born, three Doctor Who episodes have received their premiere broadcast. The first came in 1968 when 6.6 million people were watching the Second Doctor in episode four of Fury From The Deep, a story which is, sadly, entirely missing from the archives. Skip forward one regeneration and 6 years and we have the Third Doctor adventure The Monster of Peladon. Part three was broadcast on this day in 1974 and watched by 7.4 million.

It's a huge jump of nearly 40 years for our next episode broadcast on this day. That would be 2013's The Rings of Akhaten, broadcast at 6.15pm and watched by 7.23 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.
