Whoniversaries 30 September: The Abominable Snowmen #1, The Pirate Planet #1

A quarter of the way through the year, and I'm finding this time-consuming but (so far) rewarding. It helps that I have a skeleton for each day from my 2010-11 series of posts, but I've also enjoyed boosting them with pictures from the TARDIS Data Core and Tragical History Tour, as well as my own screencapping where needed. Closing September, here we go with:

i) births and deaths

30 September 1945: birth of Sandra Bryant, who played disco manager Kitty the night club owner in The War Machines (First Doctor, 1966) and Chicki in the first episode of The Macra Terror (Second Doctor, 1967) - the role was recast and a different actress played the character in episode three).

ii) broadcast anniversaries

30 September 1967: broadcast of first episode of The Abominable Snowmen. The Tardis lands in Tibet; the Doctor is captured by the monks of Det-Sen monastery at the urging of Travers who thinks he is a rival researcher. Meanwhile Jamie and Victoria go exploring in the caves...

30 September 1978: broadcast of first episode of The Pirate Planet. The Doctor and Romana, aiming for the planet Calufrax, discover instead that they are on the mining world of Zanak where the Captain and the Mentiads are in conflict.
