Today In DOCTOR WHO History: February 3rd

"But have you tried using a moisturiser?"

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).

February 3rd
Oddly, we have four televisual episodes of Doctor Who that were broadcast on February 3rd and they consecutively increase in episode number - as in episode 1, then 2, then 3 and so on. You get my drift? No? Well let me explain it another way...

Our first episode today is episode one of the Second Doctor adventure The Web of Fear which was broadcast in 1968 to 7.2 million viewers. The second Doctor Who episode to arrive on this day was episode two of the 1973 Third Doctor adventure Carnival Of Monsters which was watched by 11 million viewers. Moving onto 1979 for our third episode and it's part three of The Armageddon Factor which drew an audience of 7.8 million. Finally, as the screen-grab at the top of the page will attest, our fourth episode for the day is the fourth and final part of Frontios which was first broadcast on your tele-box Friday February 3rd 1984 and was watched by 5.6 million viewers.

One final thing of note could be heard on the wireless on this day in 1996. It was the third part of the Third Doctor radio drama The Ghosts of N Space.

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.
