Today In DOCTOR WHO History: February 5th

"Don't blame me, I voted remain."

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 5th
We begin today with the First Doctor and Steven putting the world to rights over a swift pint. Old Firsty better down that quick as he's needed for the start of a new adventure, 8 million people are waiting for The Massacre of St Bartholomew's Eve to get underway. This episode was entitled War of God and was broadcast on this day in 1966 and like the other three parts to the story it is currently missing presumed wiped.

Moving on to 1972 and we have episode two of The Curse Of Peladon, which drew an audience of 11 million. Finally, on this day in 1977 12.4 million people tuned in to part two of The Robots Of Death.  
Before we pop off let's just say a quick happy birthday to the great Michael Sheen. You may well have seen him in Frost/Nixon, The Twilight Saga, Staged, Prodigal Son, Good Omens, Tron: Legacy and a whole host of other top films and shows, and you'll likely remember his distinctive dulcet tones as the voice of House in the Eleventh Doctor adventure The Doctor's Wife. Happy Birthday to you sir!

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.
