On 15 July, the following important behind-the-scenes events were known to have occurred:
- 1994 - Writer John Leekley submitted his first story proposal for the 1996 TV movie. During a Dalek invasion of Gallifrey, the Master becomes Lord President in Borusa's absence. The Doctor's companion would be an American named Lizzie Travis, with whom he would search for his father Ulysses in Ancient Egypt. After a "Cyb" attack, the Doctor returns to his home planet and is ordered by the Master to again stop Davros from creating the Daleks. Leekley had it end with the two departing again, continuing on their search for the Ulysses. He later revised this storyline on 27 July.
- 2013 - The Doctor Who production team was asked to make a live broadcast announcing the casting of the Twelfth Doctor, due to be broadcast in around three week's time.
