On 19 February, the following important behind-the-scenes events were known to have occurred:
- 1996 - The VHS video range was suspended due to the imminent release of the forthcoming tele-film. This also resulted in many back titles being deleted, including the very recent release of The Hand of Fear, which made this particular title most sought after.
- 2010 - Doctor Who and Torchwood received several nominations for the 2010 Saturn Awards. The End of Time and Children of Earth were nominated for "Best Television Presentation". David Tennant was nominated for "Best Actor in Television", Bernard Cribbins for "Best Guest Starring Role in Television", and, in the "Best DVD Television Release" category, the DVDs of Planet of the Dead and Children of Earth were nominated.
