Today In DOCTOR WHO History: December 3rd

Bloody hell that's freezing!

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 3rd
Only the 8 million people who watched episode five of Patrick Troughton's debut adventure, The Power of the Daleks, ever got to see this 1966 missing-presumed-wiped classic adventure in all its glory, the rest of us have had to make do with the animated version from a few years back, but unless someone finds the original tapes hidden down the back of a sofa or somewhere obscure, the animated version is better than nothing, right?

There is only one actual Doctor Who episode which received its premiere broadcast on December 3rd, and that came in 1977 with part two of The Sun Makers, a story which gained a million viewers from its previous installment and has a recorded audience of 9.5 million.

Why oh why do They Keep Killing Suzie? All was revealed in the Torchwood episode first broadcast on this day in 2006 at 10:00pm and watched by 1.12 million viewers.

Also, in spin-off land, the eighth episode of Class debuted on BBC Three on Saturday December 3rd 2016. Titled The Lost, it proved to be the finale of not just the season but the final televisual adventurer.

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.
