DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming February 23rd

We dive back into the heart of the 1980s, with the first half of a 6th Doctor classic:  VENGEANCE ON VAROS.  Not only is it one of Doctor Who's darker, more political stories, it's one that has much to say on television violence, screen obsession, reality programming...topics that are highly relevant in 2018, but [...]

DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming February 16th

This week, we watch a recently minted classic from Peter Capaldi's first season as the 12th Doctor.  A little bit of Agatha Christie style, some old fashioned horror movie gravitas, lots of great characters (and potential victims of the eponymous mummy), and a gorgeous conclusion all add up to one of Doctor Who's highlights from [...]

DOCTOR WHO CLUB pauses for a vacation…

...because, like the Doctor, we all need a break.  Unlike the Doctor, it won't be on the shingles of Brighton beach...but one can dream.  In any event, as exams begin and semester one ends, DOCTOR WHO CLUB will be taking a brief pause until our first meeting of the second semester, which will take place [...]

DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming December 1st

This week, we conclude Sylvester McCoy's introduction as the 7th Doctor with Parts 3 & 4 of TIME AND THE RANI.  It remains one of the most bonkers stories of the 1980s, but it's also a story with a freshness of ambition that arrived at just the right time in the program's history. However, watching [...]

DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming November 24th

Our tour through the introductory stories of past Doctors leads us to 1987, and the beginning of the 7th Doctor's era...in a story that is one of the most outrageous in all of classic "Doctor Who" history: TIME AND THE RANI.  It certainly makes for a wild baptism of fire for Sylvester McCoy, who [...]
