Today In DOCTOR WHO History: February 10th


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 10th
On this day in 1968 6.8 million people were watching the Second Doctor in episode two of The Web of Fear. Episode three of the 1973 Third Doctor adventure Carnival Of Monsters was watched by 7.8 million viewers.

Moving onto 1979 and don't you just hate it when you're soon to be ex-Romana and your about to be new-Romana get together in the same room? What's a Doctor to do, eh? It is, of course, part four of The Armageddon Factor which drew an audience of 8.6 million.
Also on this day, Peter Purves celebrates his birthday. Born 10th February 1939 he would go on to play First Doctor companion Steven Taylor (as well as a brief cameo as cowboy Morton Dill) and, of course, spent many years as a presenter on Blue Peter and Kickstart, among other things. Happy Birthday Mr Purves.

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.
