Whoniversaries 11 November: Ice Warriors #1, Stones of Blood #3, Demons of the Punjab

i) births and deaths

I considered commemorating the births of Stubby Kaye (1918) and June Whitfield (1925) but since neither appeared in more than one Doctor Who story - respectively Delta and the Bannermen (Seventh Doctor, 1987) and The End of Time I (Tenth Doctor, 2009) - I decided I wouldn't mention them.

ii) broadcast anniversaries

11 November 1967: broadcast of first episode of The Ice Warriors. Britannica base, fighting a new Ice Age enveloping Britain (and the whole planet) finds a frozen humanoid and three people arriving from the Tardis, all of whom are intrigued by future fashion.

11 November 1978: broadcast of third episode of The Stones of Blood. The Doctor finds the hyperspace ship and is confronted by the Megara; Amelia and K9 have to deal with the Ogri.

11 November 2018: broadcast of Demons of the Punjab. The Tardis crew get caught up in Yazmin's family history and the 1947 Partition of India.

iii) date specified in canon

11 November 1913: the Doctor defeats the Family of Blood, as seen in, er, The Family of Blood (2007).
