Today In DOCTOR WHO History: January 28th

He's had his Ready Brek!

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 28th
In 1967 episode 3 of The Underwater Menace drew an audience of 7.1 million viewers. Short. Sweet. To the point.

Now, you're probably like me, that when people criticise the wobbly sets and effects from Classic Who you have your standard retort, something like; they did wonders with the little budget they had, or that it's not about the effects it's about the story. Well, ladies and gentlemen, take a butchers at Underworld, a Fourth Doctor adventure that blows those theories clear out the water! 11.7 million people couldn't quite believe their eyes (a-hem) when they saw all the cutting edge CSO trickery on display in part four, which premiered on this day in 1978.

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.
