News Happy Birthday Tony J Fyler & Derek Jacobi

Happy Birthday Tony J Fyler & Derek Jacobi


Penblwydd hapus Tony, a much valued member of Project: Torchwood, you celebrate your birthday with The Master himself, Derek Jacobi an actor has surprised me during a recent search on Wikipedia as providing the narration for ‘In the Night Garden’, a nightly show on CBeebies.

On this day in 1966, Episode 3 of The Tenth Planet was broadcast.  It was Season 4 and starred William Hartnell who ended his tenure as the Doctor and regenerated into the 2nd Doctor, Patrick Troughton.  With companions Michael Craze and Anneke Wills.  Writers were Kit Pedlar and Gerry Davis, Director was Derek Martinus.

Writers were  Bob Baker and Dave Martin, Director was Derrick Goodwin.

On this day in 2006, Episodes ‘Everything Changes’ and ‘Day One’ were broadcast.  It was Season 1 of Torchwood and we saw an insight of the Institute based in Cardiff, having only been loosely introduced to it in the Doctor Who episodes from Tooth and Claw to Donna Noble’s date with the Racnoss.  WPC Gwen Cooper led us into the world of alien creatures and life beneath the surface of Cardiff, where anything goes, and everything is above the law of the land. 

We were introduced to Captain Jack Harkness, who finally fits into that Great coat he looked far too small for in ‘An Empty Child’, Dr. Owen Harper, Ianto Jones, Toshiko Sato, and Suzie Costello, who although shot herself at the end of ‘Everything Changes’ was brought back to life in a later episode. We’re introduced to a gas alien living in the host body of Carys Fletcher, who goes on a killing spree in order to survive. 

Writer for ‘Everything Changes’ was Russell T Davies, Writer for ‘Day One’ was Chris Chibnall, with Brian Kelly as Director for both.



Others with their birthday today are: Christopher Lloyd, Jeff Goldblum, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Franz Liszt (1811-1886), Bob Odenkirk and Plan B.


Have an awesome day from everyone at Project: Torchwood
