Whoniversaries 12 September: Ronald Leigh-Hunt, Reign of Terror #6

i) births and deaths

12 September 2005: death of Ronald Leigh-Hunt, who played Commander Julian Radnor in The Seeds of Death (Second Doctor, 1969) and Commander Stevenson in Revenge of the Cybermen (Fourth Doctor, 1975).

12 September 2014: death of Christopher Wray, who played PC Groom in The Dæmons (Third Doctor, 1972) and Leading Seaman Lovell in The Sea Devils (Third Doctor, 1973).

ii) broadcast anniversary

12 September 1964: broadcast of "Prisoners of the Conciergerie", sixth and final episode of the story we now call The Reign of Terror, ending the original first season of Doctor Who. Ian and Barbara encounter Napoleon; Robespierre is overthrown; the Tardis crew escape, musing on destiny and history. A pretty hefty burden for the team, after nine months of solid performance to turn out the weekly show!
