Today In DOCTOR WHO History: May 2nd

Someone's shat all over the First Doctor's favourite mug, 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).

May 2nd
Susan's been using the Doctor's favourite mug and he's not happy about it! He gives her one last warning, but if she makes a cup of hot beefy Bovril in it one more time then he'll have no choice but to abandon her in war-torn London, circa 2164! She's been warned.

But we're getting ahead of ourselves. First up we have part four of The Keys of Marinus (titled The Snows of Terror) from 1964. It was broadcast at 5.29pm and watched by a 10.4 million viewers. Six years later the seventh and final installment of The Ambassadors of Death was watched by 6.4 million viewers.
Finally today we head back to 2003 for the opening part of the online animated webcast of Shada which was released at 12:00pm on the old BBC Online service. Originally recorded as a Big Finish audio play featuring Paul McGann as the Doctor, the BBC added Flash animation to finally bring the unfinished Douglas Adams story to the screen - albeit computer screen at a time when people mainly had dial-up connections, meaning it took an eternity to buffer.

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.
