Another season drew to a close today in 2007 - the third of the revived series. The Last of the Time Lords saw the apparent death of the Master, but things were left hanging as someone removed his signet ring from his funeral pyre...
Earlier that morning you could have seen a compilation of the animated adventure The Infinite Quest, which had been a feature of that year's Totally Doctor Who.
Today we remember actor Edward Burnham, who cornered the market in eccentric scientists for a time. He was Professor Watkins in The Invasion, and Professor Kettlewell in Robot.
He passed away on this date in 2015, aged 98.
We also lost David Ellis - co-writer with Malcolm Hulke of The Faceless Ones - in 1978, aged 60; and actor Glyn Houston, who made two appearances in the series. The first was as Prof. Watson in The Hand of Fear, and the other was as Colonel Ben Wolsey in The Awakening.
He died in 2019, aged 93.
Amongst today's birthdays we have Rupert Graves (Dinosaurs on a Spaceship) who turns 59, and Ashley Walters (Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS) who is 40.
