Today In DOCTOR WHO History: May 26th

Is there anyone that Tenth Doctor won't have a little snog with?

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 26th
On this day in 1973 episode two of The Green Death was broadcast to an audience of 7.2 million viewers. Then we jump into a Type 40 and travel 34 years into the future for our first proper new-Who story of the week, and that Tenth Doctor eh? Always kissing someone! This time it was the school nurse Joan Redfern who get herself all tangled up in a bit of Human Nature. Broadcast in 2007 at 7:11pm, the start of the Chamelion Arch two-part adventure was watched by 7.74 million viewers, and followed over on BBC Three by that week's episode of Doctor Who Confidential titled Alter Ego.

Also, because we like to note these things, Peter Cushing was born on this day in 1913. Among his many roles in the Hammer Horror films he will be remembered as Grand Moff Tarkin in Star Wars and the 1960s big-screen Dr. Who. The two films, Dr Who & the Daleks and Daleks' Invasion Earth 2150 AD, certainly weren't canon but we'll raise a glass to him anyway.

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.
