The First Doctor
An Unearthly Child
We go back to where it all began with An Unearthly Child, way back from 1963. Schoolteachers Ian Chesterton and Barbara Wright have some concerns about a pupil, Susan Foreman, but when they go to investigate they are not prepared forwhat happens next. Who is the mysterious man in a police call box in a junkyard, and just where will they go?

'Not Technically Doctor Who' Week
We take a sideways journey through time and space to visit some not-exactly-Doctor Who-but-who-cares content! From ER (starring Alex Kingstonand others), The Thick of It (starring Peter Capaldi) and This is Jinsy (starring David Tennant), here we’ll watch some of the other things Doctor actors and companions got up to in their careers. Whether you consider them canon to Doctor Who is up to you! (We definitely do...)

The Eleventh Doctor
Adrift (Torchwood) and Death of the Doctor (The Sarah Jane Adventures)
From the Worlds of Doctor Who come two spin-off episodes! We first journey to the world of Torchwood, with Adrift, where Gwen Cooper investigates disappearances in Cardiff, all linking to the space-time rift at the heart of Torchwood. What is Captain Jack hiding, and will Gwen want to find out the truth at all? Then, in Death of the Doctor, if it wasn’t obvious from the title, the Doctor has been declared dead! Is this true? Well, Sarah Jane and former companion Jo Grant (now Jones) are determined to find out, even if the alien undertakers, the Shansheeth have other ideas...

GEEK QUIZ!!
In the legendary (virtual) Geek Quiz, members of Oxford’s geekiest societies get together to battle it out for the crown of “team who won that term”. If you can write a round not entirely related to Doctor Who, bring it along. Please ensure your round is visual – make a PowerPoint with each question displayed on a different slide. Our society usually divides up into a few different teams – come along and help us beat those pesky TrekSoc-ers!

The Eleventh Doctor
The Doctor's Wife and The God Complex
It’s Series Six in Sixth Week! (We try to be on-brand here) In The Doctor's Wife, the Eleventh Doctor receives a Time Lord distress signal and follows the signal to (hopefully) find another Time Lord! But what awaits on the mysterious asteroid in the bubble universe, and what connection does the woman Idris have to the Doctor and his TARDIS? Then, in The God Complex, the Doctor, Amy, and Rory arrive in what seems like a normal hotel, but they soon discover that every visitor has a room containing their darkest, deadliest fears. Just what is inside the Doctor’s room, and can he save everyone?

Reconstruction Discussions
Sadly, the BBC in the 1970s did the unthinkable and scrapped many Doctor Who episodes, and despite the amazing escapades of many fans, who have restored episodes to the archives, some remain missing. We will be discussing the various elements of the missing episodes that survive today –soundtracks, telesnaps, scenes, and the official and unofficial attempts to resurrect these stories and save them from the quicksand of time...

Games Night & Committee Meeting
To celebrate the end of a challenging academic year, we are throwing a (virtual) party! Games galore, with Doctor Who twists, featuring your old favourites, but this time without the risk of being teleported onto a Dalek ship to face certain death. Feel free to come along and suggest your own games that we can play (think Jackbox or skribblio!). We will then have our termly Committee Meeting, where you can decide with us what’ll be happening in Michaelmas!
