We say goodbye to Amy & Rory today in Doctor Who history.

September 29th
Straight out of the gate today in Doctor Who history we have a massive 12.4 million of the UKs finest viewers tuning in for part one of the Fourth Doctor classic adventure City of Death. Broadcast in 1979 at 6:06pm on that Saturday September 29th those ratings are small change when compared to part four - which, at 16.1 million, holds the record for the largest ever Who audience! But we're getting ahead of ourselves as we still have plenty of awesome adventures to round-up for you before then. Including...

September 29th 2012 was the day 7.82 million viewers said goodbye to Amy and Rory, their Doctor Who swansong being The Angels Take Manhattan.

Season Two of The Sarah Jane Adventures got underway with part one of The Last Sontaran. Broadcast on Monday September 29th 2008 at 4:35pm, when it was watched by 0.82 million BBC One viewers. It was hastily followed by part two of the same adventure over on the CBBC channel, with a final consolidated audience of 1.18 million tuning in for that.

September 29th happens to be Nicholas Briggs birthday. Born in 1961, he's best known as the voice of the Daleks but that's really just scratching the surface of his decades of work in the world of Doctor Who. From the Myth Makers VHS series, to the BBV Videos, the Audio Visual releases and of course over two decades of work with Big Finish Productions.

Happy birthday Mr Briggs.

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.
