  • 7 - Pete Tyler is killed when he is struck by a vehicle while crossing the road en route to a friend's wedding. This event is witnessed by Rose Tyler and the Doctor. Initially Pete died alone before help could arrive. Rose creates an alternate timelines by preventing him from being killed, which results in a dangerous paradox. Ultimately, after spending some time with his now-grown daughter, Pete learns that in order for time to continue normally, he must die, so he walks in front of another vehicle. This time Rose is with him when he dies, and the fabric of time is altered so that the record shows Pete died as an unidentified woman knelt beside him. (DW: Father's Day) Technically, since Rose being with Pete becomes part of established time, the alternate timeline is in fact now the one where he dies alone.

  • 15 - TC: K-9 and Company is first published. This is the belated third (and final) volume in the Companions of Doctor Who spin-off series. Unlike the previous two books, however, this is not an original work but an adaptation of the K-9 and Company pilot episode, KAC: A Girl's Best Friend.
  • 19 - DW: Paradise Towers Episode 3 is first broadcast.
  • 26 - DW: Paradise Towers Episode 4 is first broadcast.
  • The Star Trek franchise returns to television after an 18-year hiatus (not counting an animated cartoon series) with the debut of Star Trek: The Next Generation which successfully reestablished the franchise and led to several spinoff series. Eighteen years after this, the Doctor Who franchise itself was revived (after a 16-year hiatus); it too was a successful relaunch that led to spinoffs.

November

  • 02 - DW: Delta and the Bannermen Episode 1 is first broadcast.

  • 16 - DW: Delta and the Bannermen Episode 3 is first broadcast.

An adaptation of the serial DW: The Massacre of St Bartholomew's Eve, this is the first time in more than a decade that a novelisation title differs from the broadcast serial. In addition, the book makes substantial changes to the original story, something not seen since the earliest days of Doctor Who novelisations.
  • 22 - The Max Headroom broadcast signal intrusion incident occurs when unidentified individuals briefly hijack the broadcast signals of two television stations in Chicago. During the illegal interruptions a man dressed in a Max Headroom mask appears on screen an carries on for a brief time. The first interruption takes place during a sports broadcast. The second, lasting a minute and a half, occurs during a local PBS station's broadcast of DW: Horror of Fang Rock. The culprits are never caught. In the days following, Doctor Who gets a bit of extra (albeit unwanted) publicity as the interrupted scene is rebroadcast on many American TV stations.
