Today In DOCTOR WHO History: March 11th

She's off! With not even a Jelly Baby to remember him by.

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).

March 11th 
It's a big day for Doctor Who related birthdays, as John Barrowman, Alex Kingston and Graeme Harper were all born on March 11th. Happy birthday to them all. And the late great Douglas Adams also graced the Earth with his presence for the first time today back in 1952.

But on with the show, and if it's Doctor Who episodes you want then March 11th has them for you. Well, it has three of them for you. Firstly it's back to 1967 as the Second Doctor faces the opening episode of The Macra Terror, which was broadcast at 5.15pm to an audience of 8 million viewers. Moving on to 1972 and the third part of the Third Doctor story The Sea Devils was watched by an audience of 8.3 million.

And it's time for the Fourth Doctor to part ways with Leela in the sixth and final installment of The Invasion Of Time. 9.8 Million viewers waved her off on this day in 1978.

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.
