On This Day... 21st September

Episode Two of The Mind Robber debuted on this day in 1968. This was the episode during which Frazer Hines was ill with chickenpox, and his role had to be played by Hamish Wilson after the Doctor got a puzzle wrong and gave him a new face. Luckily, the bizarre nature of this story allowed for such strange goings-on. The beginning of this episode was recorded during the making of a later episode, once Hines had been given the medical all-clear.
Also on this day, in 1987, the third part of Time and the Rani was broadcast.
