Today In DOCTOR WHO History: June 19th

Everyone was enjoying the Doctor's rendition of YMCA.

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 19th
We start with a death today as on June 19th 1965 an episode called The Death of Doctor Who was broadcast. Spoiler alert: As the 9 million people watching will tell you, the Doctor didn't actually die! He couldn't really as there was still one more episode of The Chase to go after this, not to mention the 55 more years and counting worth of adventures to be had.

Also on this day we have episode five of The Dæmons. Broadcast in 1971 at 6:10pm, this Third Doctor's classic adventure was watched by 8.3 million viewers. Moving on to new-Who and 7.58 million were tuned in to the penultimate episode of the Eleventh Doctor's debut season. That Matt Smith always gave good speech, as evidenced here in 2010s The Pandorica Opens.

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.
