The second part of the First Doctor adventure The Massacre of St Bartholomew's Eve gets us underway this week in Doctor Who history. It broadcast on this day in 1966 and entitled The Sea Begger. Sadly, like the other three parts to the story it is missing presumed wiped, so only the 6 million lucky beggers tuning in were lucky enough to see it in its entirety. Moving on to 1972 and we have episode three of The Curse Of Peladon, which drew an audience of 7.8 million.
Now, slip on some Righteous Brothers and get the potter's wheel spinning, perhaps, as on this day in 1977 a huge 13.1 million scarf loving people tuned in to part three of The Robots Of Death.
Let's face it, that screen grab above could be from no other show but 1960s Doctor Who, and the particular episode in question would be The Web Planet which began on this day in 1965 and was watched by 13.5 million viewers. The following year it would take home ALL of the costume design awards at the BAFTAS, naturally. (a-hem).
Two regenerations and 6 years later, the Third Doctor faced The Mind Of Evil (insert your own Donald Trump executive order joke here), episode three drawing an audience of 7.5 million.
Quick question for you. What's better than one episode of Torchwood?
That, as you likely guessed, would be two episodes of Torchwood! Although, I concede that in the case of Miracle Day maybe no episodes of Torchwood would be the favourable option? Fortunately, though, we're talking Torchwood series two, and so viewers who tuned in to BBC2 at 9pm on this day in 2008 to catch Adam could quickly make the switch to BBC Three after it finished for the debut of Reset. Respectively they were watched by 3.79 million and 0.85 million viewers. Proving that even when it was a proper bonafide TV channel nobody really watched BBC Three (honestly, what chance did Class ever have?).
It's Valentine's Day, and back in 1970 7.5 million fans were showing their love for the Third Doctor when episode three of Doctor Who And The Silurians was first broadcast on this day. One change of face later and two stories for you, both, again, part three of their respective tales. 1976 saw The Seeds Of Doom draw an audience of 10.3 million, and in 1981 The Keeper Of Traken had 5.2 million viewers.
Back in 1964 the second and final episode of The Edge Of Destruction was watched by 9.9 million people. Five years later, episode four of the Second Doctor adventure The Seeds Of Death had 7.1 million tuning. 10.2 million pairs of eyes were watching the screen come Saturday tea-time this day in 1975, when the fourth and final part of The Ark In Space was broadcast.
Seven years later his much younger looking older self began a new adventure, with 9.1 million people tuning in to The Visitation. The following year it was the start of another new adventure for the Fifth Doctor, as part one of Terminus was watched by 6.8 million viewers. Finally, in 1984, the second part of Resurrection of the Daleks was broadcast on Wednesday evening at 6:52pm, and watched by 8 million viewers.
Part six of Invasion of the Dinosaurs was broadcast this day in 1974 and watched by 7.5 million viewers. Tuesday February 16th 1982 saw part two of The Visitation broadcast at 7:05pm, and watched by 9.3 million viewers. Part two of Terminus aired the following year and was watched by 7.5 million. And one regeneration later, the Sixth Doctor joined forces with his Second self, combined The Two Doctors drew an audience of 6.6 million people.
Also on this day in 1964 Christopher Eccleston was born. So, Happy Birthday to him.
On this day in 1968 7 million people were watching the Second Doctor in episode three of The Web of Fear. Episode four of the 1973 Third Doctor adventure Carnival Of Monsters was watched by 8.4 million viewers. Moving onto 1979 and part five of The Armageddon Factor drew an audience of 8.6 million.
That's not quite all for this day as during the wilderness years Radio 4 listeners were treated to the fifth part o the Third Doctor radio drama The Ghosts of N Space on this day in 1996.
In 1967 episode 2 of the Second Doctor adventure The Moonbase drew an audience of 8.9 million viewers. And finally for this week in Doctor Who history, on this day in 1978, part three of The Invasion Of Time was watched by 9.5 million people.
