Today In DOCTOR WHO History: September 22nd

Jamie's looking confused. Someone's hidden his birthday presents...

September 22nd
Let's get things underway today with a double birthday celebration, as two of Doctor Who's most popular companions were born on this day. That is to say, the actor/actress who played them were. Frazer Hines, who played Jamie McCrimmon, was born on September 22nd 1944, and Billie Piper, Rose Tyler, 38 years later. A very happy birthday to them both.

Episodes Broadcast
Now, you may want to sit down for this one! Back in 1979 a staggering 14.4 million people tuned in to the fourth part of the Fourth Doctor adventure Destiny of the Daleks! Yet a few of years back when we ran a poll to find for your favourite Dalek story and 3000+ of you cast your votes, not a single one of them was for the adventure! Madness!!

Also on this day, in 2012, The Power of Three will set them free. Oh no hang on, that was Charmed! This was the Eleventh Doctor, Amy, Rory and some little boxes.... and 7.67 million of Britain's finest.

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.
