3 April 1938 was the date to which Rory Williams was transported whilst holding coffee that he had bought in 2012. In the Manhattan of that date, he met his daughter River Song and ultimately was reunited with his wife Amy Pond and the Eleventh Doctor. He then worked out that the only way to defeat the Weeping Angels that were feasting on the humans of this period was if he committed suicide, thus snapping the Angels' tether to the period. After he and Amy jumped off the Winter Quay building on this date, they found themselves back in the 21st century with the Angels mostly vanquished. (TV: The Angels Take Manhattan)

Saturday, 3 April 1926 was the date that the Third Doctor read on a copy of The Illustrated London News after they arrived on the SS Bernie. It was in fact on 4 June that they arrived, indicating the newspaper had been lying there for quite some time. (TV: Carnival of Monsters)

In 1963, in the aftermath of the First Doctor's defeat of the Cold the day previous, electricity was finally returned to England, along with gas, running water and television. (PROSE: Time and Relative)

In 1965, the National Scandal ran an article that sensationally claimed aliens had landed in New York City. (PROSE: Salvation)
