Today In DOCTOR WHO History: June 1st

Spot the difference...


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 1st
On this day in 1968 6.5 million people were watching the Second Doctor play Spot-The-Cyberman-Difference in one of the two surviving episodes of The Wheel In Space. Part six still resides in the BBC archives (alongside part two, but sadly parts 1, 3, 4 & 5 are missing presumed wiped). Skip forward one regeneration and 6 years and it's almost time for Sarah Jane to shed a tear. The penultimate episode of the Third Doctor's swansong Planet of the Spiders was broadcast on this day in 1974 and watched by a 9.2 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.
