Whoniversaries 29 September: City of Death #1, The Last Sontaran, The Angels Take Manhattan

i) births and deaths

29 September 1933: birth of Clinton Greyne, who played Ivo in State of Decay (Fourth Doctor, 1980), Stike in The Two Doctors (Sixth and Second Doctors, 1985) and the Sontaran commander in In A Fix With Sontarans (Sixth Doctor but disowned, 1985).

29 September 1961: birth of Nicholas Briggs, voice of the Daleks and responsible for so much more in the Whoniverse. We would not be where we are without him.

ii) broadcast anniversaries

29 September 1979: broadcast of first episode of City of Death. The Doctor and Romana are in Paris, and get mixed up with Duggan the detective and Count and Countess Scarlioni. But the Count is more than he seems...

29 September 2007: broadcast of both episodes of The Last Sontaran, starting Season 2 of the Sarah Jane Adventures. A surviving Sontaran from The Sontaran Stratagem/The Poison Sky tries to destroy human life on Earth, but is thwarted by Sarah Jane, Luke, Clyde and Maria. But (sob!) Maria is moving to America and we won't see much more of her.

29 September 2012: broadcast of The Angels Take Manhattan, and the departure (sob, again!) of Amy and Rory when the angels keep them in 1930s New York, ending the first part of Season

iii) date specified in-universe:

29 September [?2016, a Sunday anyway]: the Hackney Harvest Festival was due to take place in the very first episode of Class (2016), For Tonight We Might Die.
