Today In DOCTOR WHO History: November 24th

Welcome to another day in Casualty history...

November 24th
Hello my friends. Here we go again with another round up of the episodes broadcast, the special events and the birthday's celebrated today in Casualty history. Yes, the longest-running prime time emergency medical drama television series in the world has been keeping viewers glued to the screen for over 1150 episodes of medical shenanigans, including on this day in 1979 when consultant Ewart Plimmer, with the assistance of staff nurse Clive King, operated on an injured Secker, who is addicted to the organic substance Vraxoin.

Hang on.... It seems I'm mixing my longest running genres here. It is of course The Fourth Doctor adventure the Nightmare of Eden which began on this day in 1979. Part one drew an audience of 8.7 million viewers. But as we've had an Eastenders cross-over (even if we don't like to talk about it), surely a Casualty one is overdue? I mean, it's DOCTOR who after all. This thing writes itself! Are you listening Mr Chibnall?

Although that is the only episode of Doctor Who broadcast to date on November 24th we're not quite done yet...

...Because also on this day episode two of The Sarah Jane Adventures, er, adventure, The Temptation of Sarah Jane Smith, was broadcast in 2008 at 4:35pm, and watched by 1.39 million viewers.

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