Today In DOCTOR WHO History: January 6th

You wait ages for a Troughton and then two come along at once!

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 6th
On this day in 1968 7.1 million people were watching Patrick Troughton working overtime portraying duel roles in episode three of The Enemy of the World. That's a pretty impressive number but chump change when compared to the 10.8 million people who tuned into episode two of The Three Doctors in 1973.

Five years later, part three of the Fourth Doctor adventure The Power of Kroll saw a drop of 3 and a half million viewers from the previous installment - still 8.9 million is nothing to be sniffed at! Finally for this day, on Friday January 6th 1984, 7.5 million tuned into part two of Warriors of the Deep

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.
