ii) broadcast anniversary

19 September 2015: The Magician's Apprentice kicks off the ninth series of New Who, bringing back Davros and introducing Missy. And the Doctor plays the guitar.

iii) date specified in canon

19 September 1835: The Sixth Doctor and Evelyn encounter Charles Darwin and the Silurians on the Galapagos Islands (in Bloodtide, a 2001 Big Finish audio - one of their best, IMHO).
