Today In DOCTOR WHO History: January 18th

Help me Doctor! It stinks of dead mice in here...

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.

January 18th
As Dalek-mania was starting to grip the children of Britain we head back to 1964 for part 5 of The Daleks (entitled The Expedition) to kick-off today's round up of the Doctor Who episodes broadcast on January 18th. 9.9 million viewers were there for what was just the ninth episode of Doctor Who ever. Mmmm, still so fresh and new! Five years later a mechanical menace of a different kind was troubling the Second Doctor when episode four of The Krotons was broadcast to 7.1 million viewers.

Yet another robotic foe, and this ones a giant! In 1975 part four of the Fourth Doctor's debut story Robot draw an audience of 9 million. His successor was on to his second adventure, with part one of Four To Doomsday broadcast Monday January 18th 1982 and watched by 8.4 million. In his sophomore season the Fifth Doctor was going up against the Mara, again! And 6.7 million tuned in that Tuesday evening to catch part one of Snakedance.

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.
