Today In DOCTOR WHO History: March 22nd

We say hello to the Sixth Doctor 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).

March 22nd 
Let's kick off today back in 1969 with episode three of the Second Doctor adventure The Space Pirates which was broadcast to an audience of 6.4 million. Moving on to 1975 and 8.5 million were tuned in to an adventure that is routinely voted the number one Doctor Who story of all time - part three of Genesis of the Daleks. Then in 1982 we had the Fifth Doctor, the Master and Concorde. What could possibly go wrong? Find out in part one of Time-Flight, which was watched by 10 million viewers.

On this day in 1984 the Sixth Doctor's controversial era got underway with an adventure that is routinely voted the worst Doctor Who story of all time. There was companion strangling, there was Mestor, there was the coat (oh, the coat!), and there was The Twin Dilemma. Oh yes, and there were also 7.6 million viewers tuned in that Thursday evening at 6.41pm.
Also, Romana 1, Mary Tamm was born on this day in 1950. She sadly passed away in 2012 but left a lasting legacy as the Fourth Doctor traveling companion and fellow Time Lord (Romanadvoratrelundar to give the full name) during the Key To Time story arc.

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.
