DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming February 15th

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 couple straight out of a sitcom.  At the heart of the mid-80s, the Doctor and Peri criss-crossed the universe, apparently in a never-ending argument, yet connected by a powerful bond of friendship.  They have continued their partnership for the last twenty years in the Big Finish audio adventures, and their real-life friendship proved to be just as enduring.  This week, let’s cherish their good-natured bickering one more time as the race around the Spanish countryside, trying to save the world…

DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming February 8th

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 savoring the final performance of Patrick Troughton as the mercurial, wolf-in-sheep’s-clothing Second Doctor.  He died in 1987, but his legacy to the program remains intact.  Our entire modern conception of what the Doctor is like — comic & dramatic — begins with him, and it’s a pleasure to share his greatness with Doctor Who Club.  As this is also the beginning of the semester, our monthly prize raffles also resume with this week’s meeting.  Join us for all the fun and adventure.

DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming January 18th

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 6th self must save his 2nd self in order to ensure his own existence in the present.  What could the silky Chessene and her dim-witted lackey Shockeye have planned with the Doctor’s old enemy, the Sontarans?  Only one thing is certain:  time will tell.  Specifically, a couple of weeks, as we pause between semesters…but we’ll leave for the break on a worthy cliffhanger…

DOCTOR WHO CLUB: Coming January 11th

What better way to begin Doctor Who Club for a new year than by starting with the first ever Doctor Who New Year’s specialRESOLUTION.  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 as our regular adventures through time and space resume…and we bring Jodie Whittaker’s first season as the 13th Doctor to a successful climax.
