Today In DOCTOR WHO History: February 28th

Adric proves to be shit at hide and seek, today in Doctor Who history.

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 28th
First today we're heading back to 1970 for episode 5 of Doctor Who And The Silurians which was watched by 7.5 million viewers, and then on to 1976 and part 5 of The Seeds Of Doom which drew an audience of 9.9 million.

Finally on this day in 1981, the Fourth Doctor sent Adric on a search for his hidden Jelly Babies. He gave the young Alzarian a map, a compass and a potato (for essential starch) and set him off on a quest around the TARDIS. Little did Adric know that there were in fact no hidden Jelly Babies to be found as the Doctor had already eaten them, but it kept the little bugger busy and out of everyone's way for a few hours so the whole TARDIS team were happy. Sadly Adric did figure it out eventually and continued being annoying, so much so that the Fourth Doctor had to throw himself off a radio tower and regenerate just to get way from him. Little did the 7.1 million viewers know that plot-twist would be coming up in just four weeks time at the end of Logopolis, they were all just happy watching part one Tom Baker's swansong at 5.09pm that Saturday teatime.

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.
