Today In DOCTOR WHO History: March 15th

Karma, karma, karma, karma, karma Kamelion...

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 15th 
We start today in Doctor Who history back in 1969 when episode two of the Second Doctor adventure The Space Pirates was broadcast to an audience of 6.8 million. Moving on to 1975 and 10.5 million were tuned in to a story that is routinely voted the number one Doctor Who story of all time - part two of Genesis of the Daleks.

Time was running out for Adric in 1982 (although some may say not quick enough), with part three of Earthshock drawing 9.8 million viewers. The following year the first part of the pseudo-historical adventure The King's Demons saw 5.8 million tune in to catch the introduction of Kamelion, the rarely seen shape-shifting companion. And finally on this day in Doctor Who history, we had one hell of a cliffhanger courtesy of part three of The Caves of Androzani. The Fifth Doctor's swansong drew an audience of 7.8 million.

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.
