Whoniversaries 14 July: Christopher Priest, Margot van der Burgh, Set Piece

i) births and deaths

14 July 1943: birth of Christopher Priest, apart from Douglas Adams the only famous science fiction writer to write stories for Old Who. Both of his scripts were in the end rejected, in famously acrimonious circumstances. Seen here in 2016 with me and Nina Allan, at a pub in deepest Somerset. Happy birthday, Chris!

14 July 2008: death of Margot van der Burgh, who plays the First Doctor's fiancée Cameca in The Aztecs (1964) and Nyssa's stepmother Katura in The Keeper of Traken (Fourth Doctor, 1981).

ii) broadcast anniversaries


iii) dates specified in-universe

14 July 1993: The Seventh Doctor meets up with Ace, now aged 37, in Sydney Australia, in Kate Orman's New Adventures novel Set Piece.
