DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming November 16th

The 10th Doctor & Rose come face to face with…well, that’s the question.  Is it really the devil?  The archetype behind the imagery?  Or is it just an especially ancient psychotic alien life form?  We’ll find out the truth this week, as we conclude our latest two-part story with THE SATAN PIT.  Watch as faith is tested, and survival is pushed to the limit.  Also…a reminder that, as Friday is a P.D. Day, Doctor Who Club takes place this week on THURSDAY, November 16th and NOT the 17th.

DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming November 10th

As the old saying goes, “the devil quotes scripture for his own ends“…but what happens when something claiming to be the devil faces off against the Doctor?  The answer is to be found this week, as we return to the David Tennant/10th Doctor era for a memorable two-part epic involving a black hole, and a place where existence should be impossible.  Join us this week for THE IMPOSSIBLE PLANET, ending with a memorable cliffhanger that will lead us into the next episode.  Discover why the Doctor & Rose end up stranded in the worst possible place imaginable, and learn all about a unique alien race which makes its first appearance in this episode:  the enigmatic Ood.

DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming November 3rd

This week, we conclude our viewing of the introductory outing of the 5th Doctor, with Parts 3 & 4 of CASTROVALVA.  I found our Who Club members rather entranced by the first half of the story, which may be the most contemplative & gentle of all the post-regeneration stories in Doctor Who’s long history.  The twists coming in the second half should illicit an interesting reaction.  As well as concluding Peter Davison’s introduction as the Doctor, this week is the first meeting of the month…which means it is RAFFLE PRIZE TIME!  Another selection of Doctor Who swag on offer…and all you have to do is show up for a chance to win.

DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming October 27th

We return to our exploration of opening stories introducing the era of classic Doctors.  This week, it’s 1982 once again, and Peter Davison (at the ripe young age of 29) becomes — by a considerable margin — the youngest Doctor ever…a record not broken until a 27 year old Matt Smith takes the role in 2010.  It was a monumental shift at the time, but for this old fan it was the beginning of a golden age.  Peter Davison’s 5th Doctor is MY personal Doctor, and his gentle & gentlemanly character remains the hero of my boyhood that has followed me into the present day.  Doctor Who Club re-lives that spring-like awakening this week, with Parts 1 & 2 of CASTROVALVA.  I look forward to seeing the reaction of the current generation of fans to this important moment from the past.
