{"unix":null,"utc":"Invalid Date"}

The string ‘05 October 2011, GMT’ does not match any of your conditions and gets passed to this code.

  "unix": Number(,
  "utc": new Date(Number(

Incorrectly parsed

Number('05 October 2011, GMT')

JSON.stringify(Number('05 October 2011, GMT'))

new Date(Number('05 October 2011, GMT')).toUTCString()
'Invalid Date'
