On This Day... 27th December

Just before Christmas we hit a day on which no new Doctor Who made its debut. There was one item to mention - an on-line prequel / mini-episode. Today we don't even have one of those. 27th December has always been a Doctor Who-free day.
With no episodes to talk about, I'll instead point out that today is the birthday of actor Christopher Benjamin. He turns 87. He has featured in Doctor Who three times. In 1970 he was Sir Keith Gold in Inferno, and in 1976 he was Henry Gordon Jago, manager of the Palace Theatre in The Talons of Weng-Chiang - his most fondly remembered role. He has recreated it many times on audio.
In 2008, he returned to the series to play Colonel Hugh Curbishley in The Unicorn and the Wasp.
