Dr Who Premiere, 5 January 1976
Dr Who, Episode 1 listing, 5 January 1976
The Silurians, 10 February 1976

Channel 2 (PBS)


  • 5 January 1976: The standard package of Jon Pertwee stories debuted in Boston on Monday 5 January, from 7.30 to 8.00pm. The TOPS TODAY and main billings both name the star as "John Pertwee". The main billing for the first episode also offers rather scathing comments about the quality of the BBC's special effects!
  • 12 January 1976: The episode was billed as a 'repeat', but it was most likely a new episode.
  • 20 January 1976, the series moves to Tuesday. The 10 February entry (the show aired at 8.30pm for this episode only) gives the following synopsis: "Plague spreads to London before Dr Who manages to find antidote", which is for Doctor Who and the Silurians, either episode five or six, depending on whether or not 12 January had been a repeat.
  • 10 April 1976: The series moves to Saturdays.
  • 2 October 1976: After this airing, Doctor Who moves over to WGBX.

  • 11 January 1980: A Friday airing is added.
  • 8 October 1980: Robot begins another run, this time in order.
  • 1983: Tom Baker's final season airs, weekdays at 7.00pm.
