Today In DOCTOR WHO History: May 14th

It's Father's Day somewhere.

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 14th
Part three of The Gunfighters (titled Johnny Ringo) was broadcast on this day in 1966 and watched by 6.2 million viewers. It would be a 39 year wait for the next episode of Doctor Who to arrive on May 14th in the UK, when the Ninth Doctor took Rose back in time to see her departed Daddy - Father's Day drawing an audience of 8.06 million viewers. Then we have the Eleventh Doctor getting all acquainted like with Idris in The Doctor's Wife, which was broadcast in 2011 at 6:30pm and watched by 7.97 million viewers. Those two modern episodes were followed by their respective Doctor Who Confidential installments, Time Trouble and Bigger on the Inside.

We're not quite done with May 14th as across the pond in the USA the TV Movie received its debut on FOX, airing to disappointing numbers and all but ensuring the planned UK/US Doctor Who series would not go ahead! Ah well, there was always Big Finish in the Eighth Doctor's future.

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.
