July 7th
July 7th is the date of Jon Pertwee birthday. Born in 1919, not only was Pertwee the Third Doctor, he starred in four Carry On films, spent 18 years (1959–1977) playing Chief Petty Officer Pertwee (and three other roles) in the popular sitcom The Navy Lark on BBC Radio, portrayed the title character in the television series Worzel Gummidge (between 1979 and 1981—reprising the role from 1987 to 1989), and was an all round top bloke. Here he is pictured above in a rare advert for Lynx deodorant! Mmmm, sandalwood smells so fresh.

That's not the Twelfth Doctor up there, but it is of course Peter Capaldi. Making his second appearance in the world of Who, after playing Caecilius in The Fires Of Pompeii, here he is as John Frobisher in Torchwood: Children of Earth. The second installment in the five part advaneture was broadcast on this day in 2010, 6.25 million people were tuned into the episode which was imaginatively titled Day Two.

Join us again tomorrow for another round-up of the episodes broadcast, the spin-offs, the special events, the birthday's celebrated and anything else of note that went down on this day in Doctor Who history.
