Happy Birthday Mare Winningham & Thomas Brodie-Sangster

Happy Birthday Mare Winningham & Thomas Brodie-Sangster


Mare Winningham played Ellis Hartley-Monroe in Miracle Day over three episodes. Many may recall her from Turner and Hooch and St Elmo’s fire. 

Thomas played Tim in the two part Who story Human Nature and The Family of Blood in 2007.  He played the Miner in Big Finish audio drama The Bride of Peladon in 2008, and is currently in Game of Thrones as Jojen Reed.

Did you know in 1964, Episode 6 of The Keys of Marinus was broadcast?  It was Season 1 and starred William Hartnell as the Doctor, with Carole Ann Ford,  William Russell and Jacqueline Hill.
Writer was Terry Nation and Director was John Gorrie.

The TARDIS crew must locate the 4 Keys for a strange machine in order to defeat the Voords.



In 1970 Episode 2 of Inferno was broadcast.  It was Season 7 and starred Jon Pertwee as the Doctor, with Caroline John and Nicholas Courtney as his companions.
Writer was Don Houghton and Directors were Barry Letts and Douglas Camfield.

An experimental drilling project on both sides of a parallel world goes horribly wrong.


Others celebrating their birthday today are:  Pierce Brosnan, David Boreanaz, Danny Trejo and Olga Korbut.
