Today In DOCTOR WHO History: May 28th

The First Doctor hopes to get some shots of the local wildlife in their natural habitat.

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 28th
Episode 1 of The Savages was broadcast on this day 1966, a story which may have seen the First Doctor attempt to educate the Elders and the bands of roaming savages in how to properly line up a shot with his new Polaroid camera. Or not. Either way, alas, the story is entiirely missing from the BBC archives so we can never be sure if he succeeded to take the shot, only the 4.8 million viewers watching when it was broadcast would know.

Then 39 years later it was party time, sort of. "Everybody lives" and so the Doctor Dances! The Ninth Doctor adventure was broadcast in 2005 at 6:59pm and watched by 6.86 million viewers. Then moving on to 2011 and the Eleventh Doctor adventure The Almost People which drew an audience of 6.72 million.

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.
