Voyage of the Damnned and A Christmas Carol

Join us as we travel back in time to Christmas past as we start the term with a festive double bill! Especially for you, we have Voyage of the Damned, where after a collision between the TARDIS and the Titanic, the Tenth Doctor and Astrid (Kyle Minogue) are spinning around to prevent an imminent collision with Earth.

The Power of the Daleks

Previously lost forever and now back in the form of an animated reconstruction, The Power of the Daleks is the first full story to feature the Second Doctor. A classic Doctor vs Dalek story, it should be a good watch.

The Geek Quiz

In the legendary Geek Quiz, members of Oxford's geekiest societies get together in order to battle it out for the crown of "team who won that term".

WhoSoc Termly Meal

It’s 7th week, you’ve nearly made it to the end of term, so why not come to our termly meal to celebrate? No fish fingers and custard, I’m afraid, but it will be fun night with tasty food all the same.

Saturday 4th March, 12pm

Seminar Room, Corpus Christi

The Sarah Jane Adventures Marathon

To celebrate ten years of The Sarah Jane Adventures (do you feel old yet?), we will be watching a variety of our favourite episodes. Suggestions so far include 'The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith', 'Death of the Doctor' and 'The Curse of Clyde Langer'.

8th Week

Thursday 9th March, 8pm

Seminar Room, Corpus Christi

The Happiness Patrol (and Committee Meeting)

8th Week is 80s Week! In a story featuring the Fifth Doctor, his companions are separated from him in time, but not space. He also has to deal with a schoolboy by the name of Turlough, who is taught by the Brigadier, who curiously cannot remember the Doctor at all. Enjoy the campness and hilarity, and don’t forget your jelly babies!

Join us afterwards for the committee meeting to have your say in what we do next term.
