Today In DOCTOR WHO History: May 22nd

Yeah, yeah yeah.

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 22nd
Today in Fab Four history we have the opening episode of The Chase which was broadcast on this day in 1965. Titled The Executioners it was watched by a mighty 10 million viewers who all got the chance, along with the TARDIS crew, to catch a glimpse of The Beatles, thanks to the Time and Space Visualiser. The First Doctor remarked that the Fab Four had a good sound but he didn't think they were a patch on 1980s German New Wave combo Nena, who he had a particular penchant for. Or at least I feel quite certain he was thinking that. Maybe.

Two regenerations and 6 years later, part one of the highly regarded Third Doctor adventure The Daemons was watched by 8.1 million viewers. Then, it's a mighty big jump to May 22nd 2010 where 6.49 million viewers were tuned in to catch the Eleventh Doctor in The Hungry Earth. Some of whom probably stayed around for that week's Doctor Who Confidential, titled After Effects.

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.
