Today In DOCTOR WHO History: December 20th

Never fear! The Paternoster Gang are on the case...
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 20th
December 20th is a rare Winter's day in Doctor Who history. In the Summer months we're used to no Who gracing our screens but to date no actual televisual episodes of the show have received their premiere broadcast on British television on this day. Thankfully, there's the Moffat era and the golden days of minisodes. As a prequel to The Snowmen, December 20th 2012 saw us treated to a short Victorian murder vignette in the form of Vastra Investigates. It was available to watch on your red button from 7:30pm that day (although had actually quietly dropped - as the kids say, apparently - on the web a couple of days earlier) and you can see the whole thing below...

Also, back in 2010 there was a series of the popular BBC2 quiz programme Celebrity Eggheads produced in aid of Children In Need - a charity event that Doctor Who has a long relationship with. On this day at 6pm 2.4 million viewers tuned in to a Doctor Who special. The celebrity team featured Colin Baker, Katy Manning, Frazer Hines, Louise Jameson and John Leeson. You can see a clip of the episode below.

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.
