After two weeks of watching the 3rd Doctor battling the Daleks, side-by-side with UNIT, it’s time to hurtle forward in time and watch the 10th Doctor join forces with the modern incarnation of UNIT to fight against the machinations of the Sontarans. It’s a mega-David Tennant extravaganza this week in THE SONTARAN STRATAGEM, featuring Catherine Tate as Donna Noble meeting Freema Agyeman as Martha Jones for the first time. Join us this week for some classic defending-the-Earth action.
As we conclude DAY OF THE DALEKS this week, some people might be noticing an upgrade to the original special effects. The version of the episodes we’re watching are part of a special edition: restored picture, and modern VFX added to enhance the experience. A number of classic stories have received this treatment, but so far it’s DAY OF THE DALEKS that wins the prize for best overall experience. Join us this week as we climax with a battle between the Daleks & UNIT…1972 with a dash of 21st century magic.
…join the Doctor in a well earned rest. We’ll be back on March 22nd.
Two time lines & two world collide as we take a trip back to 1972 and visit with the dashing, patrician man-of-action that is Jon Pertwee’s 3rd Doctor. Not only is DAY OF THE DALEKS his first on-screen meeting with his arch-enemies, it’s also the debut of the Daleks in colour, after the black-and-white years of the first two Doctors. Join us this week as the Doctor, Jo & UNIT lead by Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart literally fight against the future.
In THE DOCTOR DANCES, not only do we conclude the incredible story of gas mask zombies in WWII, we watch as John Barrowman’s Captain Jack Harkness becomes a part of the extended TARDIS family. To say he was the most unique addition in the history of the TARDIS crew is something of an understatement, but it’s hard to imagine now the evolution of 21st century Doctor Who without his energy and non-conformity in those early years. This week, we get to once again watch and enjoy as Mr. Barrowman’s irrepressible character worms his way into the hearts of the Doctor & Rose…and all of Doctor Who fandom. As it happens, we also get to celebrate this moment with the March Prize Raffle, taking place at this week’s meeting.
