DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming April 11th

Lots of firsts this week.   It’s our first viewing this year of Tom Baker’s titanic 4th Doctor, Lalla Ward’s impish Romana, and their indefatigable robot dog, K9.  FULL CIRCLE also marks the debut of Matthew Waterhouse as new companion Adric.  Finally, this week’s episodes mark the first full-on shift in tone for the series in 1980/81, as it begins the transition to the new 5th Doctor era that was just about to begin.  This week, our intrepid group of Whovians get to re-live all of it once again.  NOTE:  because of the PD DAY this Friday and EASTER the following week, this is first of two consecutive weeks that we will be meeting on THURSDAY!

DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming April 5th

We conclude our Sontaran two-part adventure this week with THE POISON SKY.  Has it really been 11 years since the first broadcast of David Tennant’s triumphant third series as the 10th Doctor?  Watching this adventure makes it feel just like yesterday…so join us this week to see the Doctor & his UNIT allies defend the Earth, and re-live the moment, just like it was 2008 all over again.

DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming March 29th

After two weeks of watching the 3rd Doctor battling the Daleks, side-by-side with UNIT, it’s time to hurtle forward in time and watch the 10th Doctor join forces with the modern incarnation of UNIT to fight against the machinations of the Sontarans.  It’s a mega-David Tennant extravaganza this week in THE SONTARAN STRATAGEM, featuring Catherine Tate as Donna Noble meeting Freema Agyeman as Martha Jones for the first time.  Join us this week for some classic defending-the-Earth action.

DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming March 22nd

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 so far it’s DAY OF THE DALEKS that wins the prize for best overall experience.  Join us this week as we climax with a battle between the Daleks & UNIT…1972 with a dash of 21st century magic.

DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming March 8th

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 years of the first two Doctors.  Join us this week as the Doctor, Jo & UNIT lead by Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart literally fight against the future.

DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming March 1st

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 it’s hard to imagine now the evolution of 21st century Doctor Who without his energy and non-conformity in those early years.  This week, we get to once again watch and enjoy as Mr. Barrowman’s irrepressible character worms his way into the hearts of the Doctor & Rose…and all of Doctor Who fandom.  As it happens, we also get to celebrate this moment with the March Prize Raffle, taking place at this week’s meeting.
