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 [...]
...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 [...]
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 [...]
This is it: the first true milestone of Doctor Who's 21st century resurrection. The first episode written by a future showrunner, the award-winning Steven Moffat. The first episode to feature John Barrowman's incomparable Captain Jack Harness. The first episode to truly send terrified children running to hide behind the sofa -- the soft cadence of [...]
We conclude our 1985 epic THE TWO DOCTORS this week, and so we should offer a word of praise to the combination of the 6th Doctor (played by Colin Baker) and Peri (played by Nicola Bryant). Everyone has their particular favourite Doctor/companion combination, and this one in particular is the equivalent of a bickering married [...]
Doctor Who Club resumes with the second semester, and picks up on our last cliffhanger, with Part 2 of the 1985 epic THE TWO DOCTORS. The glorious thing about this mutli-Doctor epic is savouring the final performance of Patrick Troughton as the mercurial, wolf-in-sheep's-clothing Second Doctor. He died in 1987, but his legacy to [...]
...but the Doctor & the TARDIS will return for our next meeting on February 8th.
With the end of Jodie Whittaker’s first season as the 13th Doctor, our Doctor Who Club turns to the past once again, and heads into the exam break with the start of a mid-80s epic: THE TWO DOCTORS. The Doctor has teamed up with past versions of himself before to save lives. This time, his [...]
What better way to begin Doctor Who Club for a new year than by starting with the first ever Doctor Who New Year's special: RESOLUTION. Over a thousand years ago, something alien was defeated and buried...but now, it has revived...and it may be one of the Doctor's oldest & deadliest foes. Join us this week [...]
