Whoniversaries 29 November

i) births and deaths

28 November 1987: birth of Karen Gillan, who played Amy Pond in the Eleventh Doctor era (2010-12) and also one of the Soothsayers in The Fires of Pompeii (Tenth Doctor, 2008).

ii) broadcast anniversary

28 November 1964: broadcast of "The Daleks", second episode of the story we now call The Dalek Invasion of Earth. On the flying saucer, the Doctor passes the Daleks' intelligence test and is made ready for robotisation.

28 November 2015: broadcast of Heaven Sent. The Doctor is trapped in a mysterious castle. Over and over. For billions of years.

(Two exceptionally good episodes today.)
