Today In DOCTOR WHO History: March 5th

Dodo meets Sia 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 5th
I know what you're thinking, what's Dodo doing with Sia up there? But no, it's a screengrab from back in 1966 when on this day 5.5 million people were possibly wishing this Dodo was extinct whilst tuning in for the opening episode of the First Doctor story The Ark (entitled The Steel Sky). Oh, and it was broadcast at 5.15pm, in case you were wondering.

Twelve years later, in 1977, 9.8 million scarf loving people tuned in to part two of The Talons of Weng-Chiang.  
Also on this day we have a spin-off for you. Yes we're off to Cardiff for some Torchwood. Something Borrowed was broadcast in 2008 at 9:50pm and watched by 0.98 million viewers.
And a Who-birthday for you. Matt Lucas, who portrayed Twelfth Doctor sort of companion Nardole, was born this day in 1974.

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.
