Today In DOCTOR WHO History: December 14th

It's the umbrella, isn't it? Chicks dig the umbrella...

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 14th
The final part of Doctor Who's first adventure aired for the first time on December 14th 1963 to an audience of 6.4 million people. All tuned in for An Unearthly Child episode 4, titled The Firemaker.

Five years later and Patrick Troughton was starring in the penultimate episode of The Invasion. Episode Seven was broadcast in 1968 and watched by 7.2 million viewers.

One more classic Who story to finish up today for you, and it arrived on this day in 1988 (it was a Wednesday by the way). It's the start of a new adventure for the Seventh Doctor and Ace, with The Greatest Show in the Galaxy drawing an audience of 5 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.
