The book’s full ti­tle is Doc­tor Who: 365 Days Of Mem­o­rable Mo­ments And Im­pos­si­ble Things.

Has an en­try ( usu­ally about a page long) for ev­ery day of the year.

This is usu­ally con­nected to an episode that ei­ther aired or “took place” on that day ( so “The Id­iot’s Lan­tern” is 2 June be­cause of the Corona­tion).

Side pan­els add fur­ther data: births and deaths; sig­nif­i­cant “firsts”; other episodes that aired.

Some of th­ese stats are deeply geeky – like the dates of ap­pear­ances by cast mem­bers on The One Show fore­run­ner Na­tion­wide.

The fact that Who has tended to be shown at cer­tain times of year does ne­ces­si­tate some cheat­ing, sadly – there’s no rea­son to have an en­try about the 1996 TV movie on 13 June, for ex­am­ple.

You can find much of this in­for­ma­tion at http:// bit. ly/ on­thiswho – well worth a book­mark!
