On This Day... 23rd December

The Enemy of the World got underway today in 1967 with its first episode. This was future producer Barry Letts' first involvement with the programme, as he was called upon to direct this story.
The other story to make its debut on this date was The Power of Kroll, in 1978.
Today's birthday of note is that of George Gallaccio. He acted as Production Unit Manager on the show, and was first choice by the BBC to replace Graham Williams as producer of Doctor Who. He turned the job down, and so they went with Williams' own choice, the later PUM John Nathan-Turner. George is 83 today.
