Today In DOCTOR WHO History: January 24th

"Bugger me Liz! Hell the heck are we expected to defeat the Autons with just this whisk and a tea maker? Hmmmm?"

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 24th
That dilemma up at the top of the page is the one the Third Doctor found himself in during part four of Spearhead From Space when, on this day in 1970, 8.1 million viewers tuned in to find out just what adapted kitchen utensils and appliances could be used to defeat the Nestene invasion.

Two other classic Who episodes have graced our screens on January 24th. Six years after the Doctor had thrown a toaster at an Auton (perhaps) the last installment of The Brain of Morbius drew an audience of 10.2 million, and finally for this day, in 1981 7.8 million tuned into the final part of Warriors' Gate.

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.
