May

  • 12 - CITV in Edmonton, Canada, is the first broadcaster to air the DW: Doctor Who TV movie, two days before its "official" premiere in the US.
  • 14DW: Doctor Who is first broadcast on Fox Television in America. Sylvester McCoy regenerates into Paul McGann for McGann's (to date) only on-screen appearance as The Doctor. The film introduces a new theme music arrangement by John Debney (the late Ron Grainer is not credited, however), and reinstates the Jon Pertwee era logo from 1970-1973 which subsequently replaces the 1987 series logo as the franchise branding (it will continue to be used into 2009 to denote "past Doctor"-related products following the 2005 series revival). The ratings prove to be a disappointment and Fox declines to commission a TV series or further movies. Subsequently, issues over rights and licensing prevent the telefilm from being released to home video in North America (a situation that persists into 2008), although a UK home video release occurs not long after its broadcast there.
  • 16 - NA: Happy Endings is first published. Promoted as the 50th book in the Virgin New Adventures line, it features cameo appearances by many characters from both the TV series and the NA books, and is notable for "outing" Mike Yates. Benny Summerfield ceases to be a regular companion with this novel, though she will return in later volumes and ultimately take over the New Adventures line after Virgin loses the Doctor Who licence.
  • 17 - Doctor Who - The Script of the Film is first published.
  • 20 - Jon Pertwee dies from a heart attack in Connecticut.
  • 25 - The TV movie is promoted on the cover of the Radio Times.
  • 27 - DW: Doctor Who is first broadcast on BBC1. The UK broadcast includes some minor edits related to violence, and also includes an on-screen dedication in memory of Jon Pertwee. Unlike the US showing, the UK broadcast is considered a ratings winner, but without US support, the telefilm does not result in a series revival.
  • Doctor Who - The Novel of the Film is first published. This is the first novelisation of a televised story to not be published by Target Books or an affiliate. This is the first Doctor Who novel to be published by BBC Books, and would lead to the imprint taking over the Doctor Who fiction licence from Virgin Books (it is not, however, considered part of the later Eighth Doctor Adventures line). It is the last novelisation of a televised Doctor Who story to date, and the last novelisation of any kind until WC: Scream of the Shalka was adapted in 2004.

Spring 1996

  • Around the time the novelisation of the telefilm is published, a major shake-up occurs in the Doctor Who publishing world when it's announced that BBC Books has taken on the licence to publish fiction featuring The Doctor and other BBC-owned characters and concepts from the franchise. Virgin Books, which has been publishing original novels since 1991 and also owns the Target Books line which dates back to 1973, announces its Virgin New Adventures and Virgin Missing Adventures lines will conclude in 1997, after several remaining commissioned novels are published. Virgin, however, also announces it will continue the New Adventures line after that point, focusing on the character of Benny Summerfield.

  • Frazer Hines publishes his autobiography, Films, Farms and Fillies.
  • 03 - REF: Doctor Who: The Eighties first published.
  • 07 - REF: TX File: Doctor Who, a "filofax"-style reference book, published by BBC Books as one of a series of TX File releases.
  • 17 - NA: Damaged Goods is first published. This book is notable as it was written by Russell T Davies before he achieved national fame as the creator of Queer as Folk and, ultimately, became executive producer and lead writer of the revival of Doctor Who from 2004 to 2009.

Events

  • January 5: At Area 51, the team around Dr. Jeffrey Carlson - Shannon O'Donnell Janeway, Dr. Marcus Walter Nichols, Jackson Roykirk and Shaun Geoffrey Christopher - celebrate the successful finalization of their DY-100 project. During the celebration, Shannon is contacted by Roberta Lincoln and the two women have an urgent meeting in the DY-100 construction bay, where Roberta finally drops her disguise. Shannon is instrumental in helping Roberta stealing the DY-100. She later claims that she was under the influence of Ferengi mind-control, but is relieved from duty.[1]
  • January 10: U.S. forces bombed Khan Noonien Singh's "terrorist base" in Chandigarh as well as several other Augment bases in Serbia. Just before Khan releases his ultimate weapon, the "Morning Star", which would ultimately destroy the ozone layer, Gary Seven beams into his palace and offers him a way out - aboard the DY-100.[1]
  • January 11: Gary Seven and Roberta Lincoln place Khan and the remainders of his followers on the DY-100 (which is baptized SS Botany Bay by Khan) and send them off to space into exile. During this final mission, it is revealed that Isis, Seven's mysterious cat, was amongst Khan's closest followers under the disguise as Lady Ament; she is accidentially killed by Joaquin Weiss.[1][2]
  • February 2: Gary Seven ends his mission on Earth, travelling back to the Aegis. He leaves the Aegis Earth mission in the hands of Roberta Lincoln. Roberta hires Rain Robinson to be her aide.
  • USS Voyager thrown backward in time to this year by accident. The ship's radiation is spotted by Rain Robinson. The crew of the Voyager prevents Henry Starling from causing a temporal explosion before they safely return to their own time.[3]
