Today In DOCTOR WHO History: February 24th

He stole the cookie from the cookie jar.

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 24th
On this day in 1968 8.4 million people were watching the Second Doctor in episode four of The Web of Fear. Just beating that is part one of the 1973 Third Doctor adventure Frontier in Space which was watched by 9 million viewers. Moving onto 1979 and the sixth and final part of The Armageddon Factor bested them both with an audience of 9.6 million.

It's only downhill from there but part two of Planet of Fire still delivered a decent audience on this day in 1984 as 6.1 million Fifth Doctor loving viewers were in front of their televisual boxes that night. During the wilderness years however, Whovians everywhere were gathered around their wireless and those tuned into Radio 4 on this day in 1996 were treated to the sixth 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.
