May 17th
We start today in Doctor Who history back in 1969 with the epic Second Doctor swansong, The War Games. Episode Five was broadcast at 5:14pm that Saturday tea-time, and watched by 5.1 million viewers. Then it's a 39 year jump to the only other Doctor Who episode broadcast on this day, the Tenth Doctor meets Agatha Christie in The Unicorn and the Wasp. Broadcast in 2008 on BBC One at 6:59pm, and watched by 8.41 million viewers, it was followed over on BBC Three with Nemesis, that week's installment of Doctor Who Confidential.

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.
