Today In DOCTOR WHO History: May 12th

Tell me you don't want one of those coats?

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).

May 12th
That, my friends, is either a forgotten Macklemore music video or it's 1970s Doctor Who! 1973 to be exact, and the sole Doctor Who episode broadcast on this day across the show's history is part 6 of Planet of the Daleks, which had 8.50 million people all jealous over the Doctor's wardrobe.

Although Planet of the Daleks was the only episode broadcast on UK television, the 1996 Doctor Who TV Movie had it's world premiere on this day when Canadian broadcaster CITV-DT aired the Paul McGann movie as part of their Sunday night line-up, making it only the second Doctor Who episode to receive it's premiere outside of the UK (the first being The Five Doctors).

Oh, and May 12th is also Catherine Tate's birthday, but are we bovvered? Well, yes, yes we are, because she's awesome. Happy birthday to you!

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.
