Today In DOCTOR WHO History: December 9th

"Big hugs!" The rebooted Teletubbies was not a hit with pre-school children...

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 9th
One of the surviving episodes of the Second Doctor 1967 adventure The Ice Warriors was broadcast this day. That would be part five, which was watched by 8 million viewers. Fast forward to 1978 and the Fourth Doctor was starring in the penultimate episode of The Androids of Tara, which was watched by 8.9 million viewers. It'll be a 40 year jump for our next Who episode, and that would be the finale of series eleven of Doctor Who. Titled The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos it premiered on BBC One on this day in 2018 and was watched by 6.65 million viewers.

The man behind the camera for Doctor Who's first ever episode celebrates his birthday today. Waris Hussein was born on this day in 1938, meaning he was a spritely 24 whilst filming An Unearthly Child.

Happy birthday to you!

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.
