Today In DOCTOR WHO History: June 4th

Mmmm minty fresh.

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 4th
Episode 2 of The Savages was broadcast on this day in 1966 and watched by 5.6 million viewers. Then no more Who for this day until 29 years later when the Ninth Doctor visited Boom Town. Broadcast in 2005 at 7:01pm and watched by 7.68 million viewers. Then, on Saturday June 4th 2011 if you were watching BBC One at 6:40pm you'd have seen the Eleventh Doctor in A Good Man Goes to War, along with 7.51 million other viewers.

June 4th is also Bradley Walsh's birthday. Born in 1960, his long career has seen him play Danny in Coronation Street, presenting many a game show, and playing Graham O'Brien, part of the Thirteenth Doctor's 'fam'. But that wasn't his first brush with the world of Who as he guest starred in the second season of The Sarah Jane Adventures as Old Bob in The Day Of The Clown.

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.
