Hilary Term 2012

1st Week Thursday 19th January, 8pm

Daubeny Lecture Theatre, Magdalen
The Tenth Doctor
Human Nature and The Family of Blood
We're starting with a New Who two-parter, in which the Tenth Doctor is forced to become temporarily human in order to hide from the sinister Family of Blood.
2nd Week Thursday 26th January, 8pm

Daubeny Lecture Theatre, Magdalen
The Time Meddler
The First Doctor
The Time Meddler introduces the recurring character of the Meddling Monk, whom the First Doctor encounters when he lands in Northumbria in 1066. The story also features Vikings, Saxons, and excellent Saxon names such as 'Wulnoth' and 'Ulf'.
3rd Week Thursday 2nd February, 8pm

Daubeny Lecture Theatre, Magdalen
Revelation of the Daleks
The Sixth Doctor and Peri arrive on the planet Necros to visit a deceased acquaintance of the Doctor's. They soon discover that the 'Great Healer' in charge of the place may be far from benevolent towards the human occupants, especially when it becomes clear that the Daleks are involved.
4th Week Thursday 9th February, 8pm

Daubeny Lecture Theatre, Magdalen
The Stones of Blood
The Stones of Blood, part of the bigger story arc of The Key to Time, sees the Fourth Doctor and Romana seeking part of the key. Along the way they encounter druids, sentient, mobile, blood-drinking stones, and justice machines, all quite keen on the Doctor's death.
Saturday 11th February, time TBC

Rollright Stones, Long Compton
The Fourth Doctor
Society trip
Having watched The Stones of Blood, this weekend we will be venturing outside of the Oxford bubble to see the nearby locations in which the story was filmed. Standby for more information in upcoming meetings!
5th Week Thursday 16th February, 8pm

North Quad Lecture Room, St. John's
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". Be there and not feel square for once (unless your round foxes everyone).
6th Week Thursday 23rd February, 8pm

MCR Video Room, St. John's
The Third Doctor
This week, we hope to watch the seven-episode Pertwee story, Inferno. Project Inferno, that UNIT are overseeing in a security capacity, is attempting to drill into the Earth's crust to gain access to Stahlman's Gas - thought to be able to provide lots of cheap energy - when it all starts to go wrong: out comes some toxic green slime that quickly mutates those it comes into contact with into vicious, primeval creatures and then the Doctor (trying to repair the TARDIS consol) is accidently transported into a parallel universe, where Britain is a fascist republic… How ever will the Third Doctor save the day?
7th Week Thursday 1st March, 8pm

Atomic Pizza, 274 Cowley Rd
DocSoc Meal
This term, we visit the sister restaurant of Atomic Burger: Atomic Pizza! Let the geeky food fun begin!
Saturday 3rd March, 12 pm

Old Law Library, Magdalen
River Song
River Song Marathon
For this term's marathon, we will be attempting to watch all the episodes of the new series in which River Song, a.k.a. Melody Pond and Mels, makes an appearance. There's just one catch: we will be following River's timeline, not the Doctor's, so join us to see if her story is any less or indeed more confusing from her chronological point of view!
8th Week Thursday 8th March, 8pm

St John's MCR
Time and the Rani
The Fifth Doctor
Time and the Rani kicks off with a bang - quite literally: not only is the Sixth Doctor regenerating into the Seventh, but at the same time, the TARDIS is attacked in-flight by the renegade Time Lady, the Rani, causing it to crash-land. Disorientated and confused in his post-regenerative state, not only is the Doctor separated from Mel (our joy is short-lived, however, as the Rani impersonates her) but the Rani also tricks him into helping her build a time manipulator.
