Today In DOCTOR WHO History: March 27th

Nobody quite understood the scoring system in the 'staring at the person in front of you game' but every player was committed to winning.

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 27th
In something of a double celebration, the pure historical story The Crusade got underway on this day in 1965, the opening episode was entitled The Lion (as in King Richard the Lionheart and not Lion Bar - mmmm, Lion Bar. Yum.) and was watched by 10.5 million viewers. It also happens to be Julian Glover's birthday, who you'll see above as King Richard III in The Crusade, he returned to Doctor Who in 1979 as Count Scarlioni for the Fourth Doctor adventure City of Death.

Also on this day the Third Doctor faced episode three of The Claws of Axos. Broadcast Saturday March 27th 1971 at 5.15pm and watched by 6.4 million viewers.

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.
