Today In DOCTOR WHO History: January 14th

"I have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career, skills that make me a nightmare for people like you."
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).

January 14th
Jemma Redgrave (aka Kate Lethbridge-Stewart) celebrates her birthday today. Born in 1975 she would've been just two years old when the Second Doctor began a new adventure on January 14th 1967. That was episode 1 of The Underwater Menace which was broadcast at 5:49pm and watched by 8.3 million viewers. In 2015 it became the final classic story to be released on DVD, that is unless more of the 'missing, presumed wiped' collection ever get discovered.

And on Ms Redgrave's thirteenth birthday she was gifted the oddity which was part two of Underworld. It certainly wasn't on her birthday list - I doubt it's on many people's birthday lists to be fair - but there was still 9.1 million people tuned in that Saturday in 1978, so what do I know, eh?

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.
