ii) broadcast anniversaries

20 November 1965: broadcast of "Day of Armageddon", the second episode of The Daleks' Master Plan. The Doctor infiltrates the Daleks' meeting in disguise, and seizes the terranium core from Mavic Chen. I just watched this again the other day, and it's really good! (Though what happens to Mavic Chen's crew???)

20 November 2003: webcast of second episode of Scream of the Shalka. The Doctor blows up Alison's cafe and her house to stop the aliens, but then gets taken up by the army; meanwhile the Master [played by Derek Jacobi] has got into the Tardis.

20 November 2009: broadcast of second episode of The Gift, ending the third season of the Sarah Jane Adventures. K9 persuades the Rakweed to explode, killing off the Blathereen / Slitheen.
