Today In DOCTOR WHO History: December 31st

I would like a hat like that...

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 31st
Just one episode broadcast on this day to date and it's from a story that is sadly missing, presumed wiped. The Second Doctor saw the New Year in with young Jamie McCrimmon and The Highlanders, whilst poor old Ben was sentenced to walk the plank! Episode 3 was broadcast in 1966 at 5.52pm to a welcoming audience of 7.4 million viewers, which meant there was plenty of time afterwards for Frazer Hines and the crew to celebrate Hogmanay and lead a chorus of Auld Lang Syne (what do you mean, he's not Scottish???).

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.
