Today In DOCTOR WHO History: December 2nd

So I said to the people at LEGO, "you wanna make those minifigure hands like this, but y'know smaller"...

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).

December 2nd
Episode four, which is one of the surviving installments from the Second Doctor adventure The Ice Warriors, was broadcast in 1967 at 5:25pm and watched by 7.3 million viewers. Which is a great way to kick things off for December 2nd, but Uncle Tom easily topped that figure. How did he do it? Some say with the promise of a Jelly Baby to each and every viewer. Others just say it was a golden era of the show. Either way the Baker of the Tom variety enticed 10.1 million Brits to tune in for part two of the 1978 story, The Androids of Tara. Nice work Sir.

We then have a huge 40 year leap for our next episode to be broadcast on December 2nd, and not quite as many stuck around to wait for it (well they had stuff to do). It Takes You Away premiered on this day in 2018 to 6.42 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.
