Today In DOCTOR WHO History: February 20th

Death waits for no Owen.

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 20th
The Web Planet episode two (entitled The Zarbi) was broadcast on this day in 1965, it was watched by 12.5 million viewers and is one of only Doctor Who episodes to receive their debut broadcast on February 20th. The other came two regenerations and 6 years later when the Third Doctor faced The Mind Of Evil, episode four drawing an audience of 7.4 million.

Finally, it's spin-off time and on Wednesday February 20th 2008 viewers of BBC Three could catch the latest episode of Torchwood. Owen, as seen in the image at the top of the page, would soon be up and about for Dead Man Walking, and he'd find some near symmetry between the 1.01 million people watching and the 10.01pm start time of the episode.

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.
