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.
