Whoniversaries 22 July

22 July 1937: birth of Adrienne Hill, who played the short-lived Katarina, a companion of the First Doctor, in the last episode of The Myth Makers and the first few episodes of The Daleks' Master Plan in 1965.

22 July 1964: birth of Bonnie Langford, who played Melanie Bush in 1986-87 alongside the Sixth and Seventh Doctors.

They are not the only two Doctor Who regulars to share the same birthday - more on that come October.

Inauspicious day.

22 July 1966 was also the premiere of Daleks - Invasion Earth 2150 AD.

I've got one for the 19th, too - on that day in 2004, Doctor Who began filming in Cardiff.

I've looked into the date for the release of Daleks - Invasion Earth 2150 AD, and come to the conclusion that it was probably 5 August; that's what IMDB has, and if I'm right that makes sense as a bank holiday weekend. The tardis.wikia.com site has 26 July rather than 22 July. But I'm willing to be convinced.

I believe you're right about 5th August, but surely that was when the film went on "general release"? Back then, premieres were some time earlier, surely (having just had a look at Wikipedia, that has both dates as I've got them down)?

Yeah, you're probably right. Don't worry, I will commemorate the general release date!
