1989 was a year in which a number of events important to the production of Doctor Who and its spin-offs occurred.

  • 3 August - The final studio recording session for the 1963-89 series of Doctor Who was undertaken as work was completed on Ghost Light. This would be the final filming session for Doctor Who as a TV show until 2004.[1]
  • 11 September - John Nathan-Turner informs Sylvester McCoy and Sophie Aldred that their contract options for a further season of Doctor Who will sadly not be used.
  • 17 October - This date was the tenth anniversary of Doctor Who Magazine.
  • 21 November - Sylvester McCoy is booked at short notice to record a voiceover monologue for the ending of Survival.[1]
  • 23 November - McCoy recorded the monologue that ended episode 3 of Survival and, ultimately, the original 1963-89 Doctor Who series. Ironically this was also the anniversary of the debut of Doctor Who in 1963. This marked the end of BBC production on the series until work on the revival commenced in 2004, and was also one of the few times since the 1960s that a major element of a televised serial was filmed while the serial in question had already begun airing.[1]
