Whoniversaries 14 November: Paul McGann, Planet of Giants #3, Night of the Doctor, Sleep No More

i) births and deaths

14 November 1959: birth of Paul McGann, who played the Eighth Doctor in Doctor Who - The Movie (1996) and The Night of the Doctor (2013) - see below.

ii) broadcast anniversaries

14 November 1964: broadcast of "Crisis", third episode of the story we now call Planet of Giants. Barbara is poisoned; the Doctor starts a fire to draw attention to what is going on; and all ends well.

14 November 2013: release of The Night of the Doctor. Took me by surprise!


14 November 2015: broadcast of Sleep No More. The Le Verrier space station fell silent only a day ago. No-one really knows what happened. However, some footage of the attempted rescue mission was found. The station appears empty, except for two nosy time travellers: the Doctor and Clara.
