Why so glum Doc?

October 21st
Welcome to another of our daily round-ups of the Doctor Who episodes which received their premiere UK broadcast throughout the show's long history. And we start today way back in he Second Doctor's era and, as you can see, he's looking rather glum. You see, he's just found out about the BBC's junking policy and how, even though it's only 1967, they've already started wiping his stories. Episode four of The Abominable Snowmen would be one of the those destroyed, and despite the best efforts of search and rescue teams it is still missing from the BBC vaults, so only the 7.1 million who tuned in that Saturday have seen it in all its glory.

Also on this day in Doctor Who history part four of The Pirate Planet was broadcast in 1978 at 6:22pm, and watched by 8.4 million viewers.

And how about a recent Thirteenth Doctor adventure? Alright then, take Rosa. In my humble opinion, the highlight of series eleven and broadcast this day in 2018 to a consolidated audience of 8.41 million.

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.
