Today In DOCTOR WHO History: January 31st

Quick Sarah Jane, jab it with that massive pencil!

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 31st
January 31st is a day full of Doctor Who opening episodes. First up, from 1970, we have Doctor Who And The Silurians, which was watched by 8.8 million viewers. Then, as Elisabeth Sladen tries to work out why she's holding an oversized HB pencil prop, the 1976 adventure The Seeds Of Doom began. A curious story which saw Tom Baker spilling a massive bottle of Baby Bio in his garden. Perhaps? Either way 11.4 million people were watching, Liz jotted it down on her massive notepad. Finally for today, five years later in 1981 The Keeper Of Traken began and 7.6 million viewers were there to see it live.

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.
