Freshers' Drinks with Dalek

Say hello to your fellow Whovians at the first meeting of the year! Join us for Doctor Who themed cocktails and a screening of Dalek, a Ninth Doctor classic. In an underground bunker full of alien artifacts, the Doctor encounters one living exhibit: a creature called "The Metaltron", which the Doctor is horrified to discover is a surviving Dalek. When the Dalek escapes, it’s against time to stop it from getting to the surface and wreaking havoc on humanity.

Continuing the tradition that started last term, if you wish to go in Cosplay or society representative clothing, please do so.

The Five(ish) Doctors and The Day of the Doctor

With a grand total of eight different Doctors over the two episodes, this will be the most jam-packed meeting yet! In The Five(ish) Doctors, with the 50th anniversary special of Doctor Who about to start filming, the "Classic" Doctors are keen to be involved. But with the anniversary drawing ever closer, will they manage to succeed?! In The Day of the Doctor, something terrible is awakening in London's National Gallery; in 1562, a murderous plot is afoot in Elizabethan England; and somewhere in space, an ancient battle reaches its devastating conclusion. All of reality is at stake as the Doctor's own dangerous past comes back to haunt him.
