Today In DOCTOR WHO History: February 12th

"Oh, my love. My darling, I've hungered for your touch..."

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 12th
The second part of the First Doctor adventure The Massacre of St Bartholomew's Eve was broadcast on this day in 1966 and entitled The Sea Beggar. Sadly, like the other three parts to the story it is missing presumed wiped, so only the 6 million lucky beggars tuning in were lucky enough to see it in its entirety. Moving on to 1972 and we have episode three of The Curse Of Peladon, which drew an audience of 7.8 million.

Now, slip on some Righteous Brothers and get the potter's wheel spinning as Leela and D84 recreate that scene from Ghost, possibly. Or possibly not as on this day in 1977 a huge 13.1 million scarf loving people tuned in to part three of The Robots Of Death.

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.
