On 16 October, the following important behind-the-scenes events were known to have occurred:
- 1963 - Donald Baverstock ordered thirteen episodes of Doctor Who, after being satisfied with the promise of the so-called "pilot episode". At the same time he ordered John Mair to give him hard numbers about the cost of the series' special effects. When those numbers proved shockingly high just a few days later, a mini-crisis briefly threatened to shut down the show.
