DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming June 8th

It's the last club meeting of the year...and what better way to salute the end of the year than by going back to the beginning...to November 23rd, 1963.  The day after President Kennedy's assassination, two high school teachers follow one of their students home, curious about her background.  Instead of [...]

DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming May 31st

LISTEN comes early in Peter Capaldi's tenure as the 12th Doctor...but not only is it one of the best (if not THE best) of episodes, it is an exemplar of the genius that is writer/producer Steven Moffat.  Aside from Doctor Who, his writing talent is evident from all sorts of shows, ranging from Coupling [...]

DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming May 25th

Doctor Who has always traveled into the past, but pure historicals -- without any SF or fantasy content -- disappeared after 1966.  Then, in 1982, during Peter Davison's first season as the 5th Doctor, the pure historical returned with BLACK ORCHID.  As summer approaches, it's the perfect episode:  an Agatha Christie-style murder mystery, featuring a [...]

DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming May 18th

What better way to celebrate the arrival of the Victoria Day long weekend than with a cavalcade of Daleks.  Join us this week as the 11th Doctor, Amy & Rory are plunged into a nightmare of half-crazed Daleks, terrified Daleks, zombie Daleks...and a surprise first appearance for a new character that brought the house [...]

DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming May 11th

What happens when the 10th Doctor & Rose aim for Hollywood in the 1950s and end up in London?  Instead of Elvis Presley & Ed Sullivan, it's Elizabeth I's coronation, the end of rationing, block parties...and a fascinating new invention called television.  There are rumours going around: if you watch too much of it, your [...]

DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming May 4th

What else is there to say, as we conclude Douglas Adam's wonderful CITY OF DEATH at this week's meeting?  Let's leave it to a review from THE DISCONTINUITY GUIDE by Paul Cornell, Martin Day, and Keith Topping (an absolutely hilarious review book all Doctor Who fans should read):   "'Exquisite... Absolutely exquisite.' Witty, happy, plotted [...]

DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming April 27th

What can one say about CITY OF DEATH, one of the most sublime & witty creations to ever grace the screen, under the title of DOCTOR WHO?  Douglas Adams -- the most famous of science fiction & comedy writers, serving as script editor of the 1979-1980 season -- faced a conundrum of epic proportions.  With a [...]

DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming April 20th

The Shard is the tallest building in the UK -- a brand new, mighty crag of crystal jutting into the heavens, daring people to judge it & not to look away from its mammoth-ness.  What better setting for a modern urban adventure...which the series capitalized upon back in 2013 with THE BELLS OF ST [...]

DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming April 12th

A stone-cold, romantic classic this week from the 10th Doctor's era:  THE GIRL IN THE FIREPLACE.  As April roars in feeling more like February, what better way to warm the heart & soul than the tale of a spaceship from the 51st century stalking one of the most famous women of the 18th century...complete with [...]
