Today In DOCTOR WHO History: May 29th

Amy gets the Astrazeneca jab.

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 29th
Three episodes were broadcast on this day in Doctor Who history, each of them featuring a long standing foe. Firstly, in 1965 we have episode two of the First Doctor/Dalek adventure The Chase (titled The Death of Time) which was watched by 9.5 million viewers. Two regenerations and it's another episode two, this time it's the Third Doctor and the Master in The Dæmons, drawing an audience of 8 million viewers. Lastly in 2010 we have the Eleventh Doctor and the Silurians in Cold Blood, which was watched by 7.49 million viewers and saw Amy having second thoughts about that cut-price Botox treatment she booked.
And it just so happens to be Pearl Mackie's birthday today. Born in 1987, Mackie was of course Bill Potts, companion to Peter Capaldi's Twelfth Doctor.

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.
