John Hurt’s Birthday
The late, great Sir John Hurt was born on this day in 1940.
Hurt’s entrance into the world of Doctor Who was of course a hugely memorable one when he first appeared as a forgotten incarnation of our favourite Time Lord in 2013’s “The Name of the Doctor”, and then more significantly in the 50th anniversary special, “The Day of the Doctor”.
Hurt passed in 2017 following a battle with pancreatic cancer.
Today we honour the man who would have been 78 today.
