Today In DOCTOR WHO History: June 15th

Totally dude.
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).

June 15th
Not one single proper Doctor Who episode has received its premiere broadcast on this day at any time in the show's history, which must mean the summer broadcast schedules are coming and, sadly, many more Who free days are to come in the next few weeks.

But fear not! For today, to fill the void of any episodes, let's take a brief look back at Totally Doctor Who, the CBBC series that was originally broadcast between 13th April 2006 and 29th June 2007, accompanying the second and third revived series of Doctor Who. Sorta like a One Show kids version of Doctor Who Confidential, Totally Doctor Who went behind the scenes of that week's episode, interviewed many people involved in the show both in-front of the screen and behind the scenes, offered first look clips and trailers for the next week's episode, included quizzes and competitions to win 'Doctor Who experiences' and, in series two, featured the animated adventure The Infinite Quest in weekly bite-size chunks.

The first series of the programme ran concurrently with the 2006 series of Doctor Who. Presented by Barney Harwood and Liz Barker it aired on BBC One at 5:00 p.m., and was repeated at 6:30 p.m. on Fridays and then again on Saturdays on the CBBC Channel, just prior to the BBC One airing of the new episode of Doctor Who.

The second series of Totally Doctor Who ran concurrently with the 2007 series of Doctor Who, with Kirsten O'Brien replacing Liz Barker. It aired every Friday after the broadcast of that week's Doctor Who, at 5:00 p.m. on BBC One. The programme didn't return for a third series at the time of the fourth series of Doctor Who, likely because The Sarah Jane Adventures had been green-lit for a full series and became the CBBC's new Doctor Who content.

And finally, for your viewing pleasure, here is the tenth episode from series one which was actually broadcast on June 15th 2006 and watched by 0.42 million viewers...

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.
