Whoniversaries 9 February

i) births and deaths

9 February 1918: birth of Morris Barry, who directed The Moonbase (1967), The Tomb of the Cybermen (1967), and The Dominators (1968) and played Tollund in The Creature from the Pit (1979).

9 February 1936: birth of Clive Swift, who played Jobel in Revelation of the Daleks (1985) and Baydon Copper in Voyage of the Damned (2007).

ii) broadcast anniversaries

9 February 1974: broadcast of fifth episode of Invasion of the Dinosaurs. Sarah escapes from the mock spaceship but is recaptured by Finch. The Doctor is menaced by a tyrannosaurus (I've been counting and that's three cliff-hangers out of five in this story in which the Doctor is menaced by a tyrannosaurus).

9 February 1982: broadcast of fourth episode of Kinda. Aris is trapped in a circle of reflective panels; the Mara cannot bear its own reflection, and is expelled and defeated, everyone else returning to normal.

9 February 1983: broadcast of fourth episode of Mawdryn Undead. Just as the Doctor is about to sacrifice himself, the two Brigadiers meet, discharging enough energy to deal with Mawdryn and his friends. Turlough leaves with the Doctor, Nyssa and Tegan.

9 February 1985: broadcast of second episode of Mark of the Rani. The Doctor and Peri defeat the Rani and the Master and trap them in her Tardis with a growing Tyrannosaurus. (Yes, another one.)
