Adam Povey
Lord Chancellor (Vice-President)

Adam Povey

As the Vice-President, Adam is responsible for assisting the committee and ensuring that meetings as laid out in the termcard. This mostly consists of keeping track of, and upholding, the Three-Year-Rule: that no story should be shown more frequently than once every three years without good reason. The post of Lord Chancellor is typically held by a non-student (associate) member of the Society.


When not tending constitutional practices, Adam makes a computer do physics for him. As he now gets paid to do this, he often buys the first round to make up for years as a scrounger. He thinks The Web Planet is highly underrated.

Ella Holden
Magazine Editor

Ella Holden, Regent's Park College

Ella is a second year English student at Regent's Park College, and was introduced to David Tennant's doctor by her dad in 2006. However, she has since spent many hours watching older episodes, and now has a particular fondness for Tom Baker's Doctor and Romana. When not watching City of Death on repeat with her pet cat, Daisy, she enjoys attending debates at the Oxford Union and reading a wide variety of books.


The Tides of Time is published on an irregular basis, whenever Ella can put together enough material for an issue. She is therefore always glad to receive contributions - contact her if you have any ideas for an article. Ella edits, produces and prints the magazine, and sends it on to old members of the society who wish to receive a copy, as well as handing them out to all current members of the society in the subsequent term.

Matthew Kilburn
Society Historian

Matthew Kilburn

Matthew read History at St John's, but this was a long time ago, before many of the committee were even Time Tots, as he realised when The Oxford Student attributed quotes from him to 'An Older Gentleman'. He's affiliated to the History Faculty, has worked in both staff and freelance positions on several major humanities research projects, but still finds time to write about Doctor Who for both professional and fan publications.


Matthew is a long-standing member of the society and fount of useful information about it. He also maintains the Tides of Time archive, uploading back issues and new issues alike.
