Today In DOCTOR WHO History: May 3rd

Tom and Liz get a couples neck massage at the Spa Station Nerva, 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 3rd
Here we go again as we get things underway with another day in Doctor Who history, starting with the Second Doctor's final adventure The War Games which continued on May 3rd 1969. Episode Three was broadcast at 5:15pm and watched by 5.1 million viewers.

Moving on to 1975 and the Fourth Doctor and Sarah Jane visit one of the weirdest spas this side of Raxacoricofallapatorius (don't even think of booking the aromatherapy treatment there - oh boy!). Here on Spa Station Nerva the skin care treatment is nothing to write home about but the head and neck massage is to die for!

"Oh, oh yes! That's got it."

On the other hand it could just be part three of Revenge of the Cybermen, which was watched by audience of 8.9 million viewers.

Then it's new-Who time (and there will come a day when we stop calling it that, I'm certain), with 2008's The Poison Sky (nothing to do with that Raxacoricofallapatorius aromatherapy!), broadcast at 6:19pm on BBC One and watched by 6.53 million viewers, and completing the Tenth Doctor two-part Sontaran adventure. Some people, and we don't know how many exactly, would've turned over for Sontar-Ha! Which was the title of that week's BBC Three companion show, Doctor Who Confidential.

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.
