“All of time and space, everything that happened or ever will…where do you want to start?”

Doctor Who Club takes place most Fridays, immediately after school in room 226. Join us every week for adventures in time and space with fellow fans, and lots of pizza, as we watch both new and classic episodes from all 50+ years of the world’s longest running (and best) science fiction & fantasy series. There are also monthly raffle prizes featuring various goodies. The Doctor is back…and it’s about time.

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 was already commenting on these matters in 1985.  Everything old is new again, so join us as we ride on the multi-coloured coat tails of Colin Baker’s fascinating, prickly and commanding incarnation of the Doctor…on a satiric journey into the dark heart of public entertainment.

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 2014:  MUMMY ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS. The Orient Express…in space!  The Doctor in a tux.  Clara dressed to the hilt as a flapper.  A mysterious killer mummy on a time-clock.  A stylish & scary outing for this week’s viewing.

DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming February 9th

Welcome to a new semester…and Doctor Who Club flies out of the gate with a 10th Doctor & Donna adventure from 2008 that pits the Time Lord and his best friend against futuristic slavery & corporate greed.  The episode is called PLANET OF THE OOD, and showcases the Doctor at his moral crusading best…with Donna there beside him, ready to deflate his ego whenever it becomes necessary.  As a welcome back, this week’s meeting will also feature our first monthly PRIZE RAFFLE for semester two. We look forward to seeing both our returning members, and any newcomers wishing to begin their travels through time and space.

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 on FEBRUARY 9th.  Apologies if anyone thought we had disappeared for the last week or so, as technical difficulties with the website were only recently resolved.  Rest assured we’re still here, and preparing for a second semester of geeking out with our heroic Time Lord.  In the meantime, study hard for exams, and enjoy the extended break until the time winds gather us together once again…
