Today In DOCTOR WHO History: March 9th

I'll squish him Doctor and you hit him with a rolled up newspaper...

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 9th
On this day in 1968 8.3 million people were watching the Second Doctor in episode six of The Web of Fear. Six years later part three of the Third Doctor adventure Death to the Daleks was watched by a 8.8 million viewers. Then on Tuesday March 2nd 1982 the second part of Earthshock saw the Adric fan club out in full force - all 8.8 million of them enjoying him whilst they can (Seriously, shall I tell them?).

If you were tuned into BBC1 at 6.46pm on Wednesday March 9nd 1983 then you were joined by 7.3 million others, all watching part four of Enlightenment. The following year, part two of The Caves of Androzani drew an audience of 6.6 million. One regeneration later, part one of the Sixth Doctor adventure Timelash was watched by 6.7 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.
