My novelty condom head is bigger than yours!

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 7th
It's not the busiest of days in Doctor Who history but we still have the final part of The Highlanders broadcast on Saturday January 7th 1967 and watched by 7.30 million viewers. The whole story would be junked by the BBC several years later, all four episodes still remain missing, believed wiped.

We then jump 11 years to 1978 and season 15 of Doctor Who which returned from a brief Christmas break. On this day the Fourth Doctor began a new adventure at 6.24pm, when part one of the curiosity that is Underworld was watched by 8.9 million viewers.

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.
