On this day in 1966 5.7 million people were watching the fourth and final episode of The Gunfighters (titled The OK Corral), which is the sole classic-Who story for the day.

But wait! There's more. Flashing forward to new-Who... join in everyone...
"Are you my mummy?"
Yes, it's the Ninth Doctor's ninth episode, 2005's The Empty Child was Steven Moffat's debut Doctor Who script (not counting The Curse of Fatal Death, of course), and was watched by 7.11 million viewers. Then we go to 2011 and the Eleventh Doctor adventure The Rebel Flesh where we are joined by 7.35 million of Britain's finest.

Those two modern episodes were followed byt installments of Doctor Who Confidential, respectively titled Special Effects and Double Trouble.
