Doctor Who Season 10 Episode 11 “World Enough and Time”

Amanda and Frank are taking a well deserved break for this week’s episode.  The plans for next week’s finale at their house sound awesome!!  For those who want to see the penultimate episode this Saturday, this is just an FYI that there is a screening at the Duck Club.

This is a joint meetup with OC Sci Fi Fantasy and Young Fun and Nerdy.  Please only RSVP to one group so we can maintain an accurate count.

Day of the Master Poster

Friendship drives the Doctor into the rashest decision of his life. Trapped on a giant spaceship, caught in the event horizon of a black hole, he witnesses the death of someone he is pledged to protect. Is there any way he can redeem his mistake? Are events already out of control? For once, time is the Time Lord’s enemy…

Next Time Trailer:

After 500 days of waiting in between regular season episodes, it’s hard to take that there are only two episodes left. It hasn’t been a perfect season but any season of Doctor Who is always wonderful.

Please contribute $5 to help defray costs or bring something for everyone to eat. I will bring Homemade Pizza, non alcoholic Ginger Beer, popcorn and hot dogs. If you are bringing something, post it in the conversation below so everyone know what is coming and can get other things. Chips, salsa, deserts and sodas other than Pepsi are possible suggestions. Please also post if you are bringing any games or perhaps what game(s) you would like to play. I will also bring ice, utensils, plates, napkins, cups and a Brita Water Carafe. Other than the episode itself and the Aftershow I am thinking of playing older material. I am buying the DVD for the First Doctor Episode “Tenth Planet.” If there is time I might also show the docudrama “An Adventure in Space and Time.” I will make my final determination before the meetup.

Again please be vigilant with your RSVPs. A no-show or cancellation with less than 24 hours hurts our food preparations, and repeated no-shows could result in you not being able to attend future Duck Club screenings. Just showing up without an RSVP has a similar strain on preparations and could get you refused at the door. For those new to the Duck Club, you can find directions to get there here.

Big Finish Club – Neverland, Bang-Bang-A-Boom, and The Dark Flame

Want to explore some of the classic Doctors? Join us for our monthly Big Finish Audio Club! 

This month we’ll be discussing Neverland, Bang-Bang-A-Boom, and The Dark Flame. Please listen to the stories prior to the meet-up, or you will be spoiled.

One of our members created a playlist in case you aren’t familiar with Eurovision, which Bang-Bang-A-Boom is parodying. Here is the link for the playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WI69vFJ3RfU&list=PLA1uqDQDSJC-cQ1UClnv6TgGKSGAdQyvW

Below are the links to Big Finish.

Neverland – https://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/neverland-199

The Web of Time is stretched to breaking. History is leaking like a sieve. In the Citadel of Gallifrey, the Time Lords fear the end of everything that is, everything that was… everything that will be.

The Doctor holds the Time Lords’ only hope – but exactly what lengths will the Celestial Intervention Agency go to in their efforts to retrieve something important from within his TARDIS? What has caused Imperiatrix Romanadvoratrelundar to declare war on the rest of creation? And can an old nursery rhyme about a monster called Zagreus really be coming true?

The answers can only be found outside the bounds of the universe itself, in a place that history forgot. In the wastegrounds of eternity. In the Neverland.

Bang-Bang-A-Boom! –  https://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/bang-bang-a-boom-205 Dark Space 8 – an advanced monitoring station floating serenely among the stars. Its crew – a dedicated and highly-skilled group of professionals, calmly going about their vital work. Its mission – to boldly host the Intergalactic Song Contest.

With representatives from myriad worlds competing, the eyes of the universe are on the station. But dark deeds are afoot aboard Dark Space 8… and people are starting to die.

The haughty Queen Angvia, the gaseous gestalt Gholos, disposable pop idol Nicky Neumann, erratic Professor Fassbinder and the icily-efficient Dr Helena Harcourt ­ all are suspects. Could old political rivalries be manifesting themselves among the contestants? Is this the work of a breakaway terrorist faction? Or has someone just got it in for singer-songwriters?

With peace in the galaxy hanging by a thread, it’s vital that the mystery is solved ­ and fast! Can Dark Space 8’s unconventional new commander, with the help of his personal pilot, Mel, find the murderer in time to prevent a major intergalactic war?

Or will it be nul points for the entire universe…?

The Dark Flame – https://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/the-dark-flame-208

A thousand years ago, the evil Cult of the Dark Flame infiltrated every star system in the galaxy. In the history books the Cult is legendary, its despotic leader a terrible memory.

But for some the Dark Flame still burns.

For some, its horrifying power is the ultimate goal.

All that is required is for the right people to be in the wrong place and time.

An archaeologist and his robot are on the poisonous world of Sorus Alpha, where they will uncover a hideous relic. The Doctor and Ace are on their way to the deep space research centre Orbos, where Professor Bernice Summerfield is soon to start the countdown to universal Armageddon.

Four acolytes of Evil.

Three mad scientists.

Two companions.

One Doctor.

Who Screening: S10E09: “Empress of Mars” + “Cold War”

It’s an Ice Warrior extravaganza! Twelve meets the Ice Warrior Queen in “Empress of Mars”! We’ll also be watching Eleven and Clara meet the Ice Warriors in “Cold War”! And to start off, we’ll be watching a single episode from the first time the Doctor encountered the Martian race in 1967’s “The Ice Warriors”!

As always, bring $5 for pizza and also drinks, munchies (popsicles are appropriate) and dessert!

DUCK CLUB Meetup Doctor Who Season 10 Episode 8 “Lie of the Land”

‘Truth’ Squad

The world is gripped by a mass delusion and only Bill Potts can see the truth. When even the Doctor is fighting on the wrong side, it’s up to Bill to convince the Time Lord that humanity is in deadly danger. And if she can’t do that, she may just have to kill her best friend… ” The end of the 3 part arc. 

Next Time Trailer: “The Lie of the Land”

https://youtu.be/kUD_ORMupBg

Please contribute $5 to help defray costs or bring something for everyone to eat. I will bring Homemade Pizza. non alcoholic Ginger Beer, chips, popcorn and hot dogs. If you are bringing something, post it in the conversation below so everyone know what is coming and can get other things. Salsa, deserts and colas are possible suggestions. Please also post if you are bringing any games or perhaps what game(s) you would like to play. I will also bring ice, utensils, plates, napkins, cups and a Brita Water Carafe. Other than the episode itself and the Aftershow I am thinking of starting the older episode “Last of the Time Lords” as it has a similar feel to the previews of the upcoming episode. But that can change depending on the whims of the group. We can also try and catch up with older episodes

For those new to the Duck Club, you can find directions to get there here.  We hope to see many of you at this meetup and, most of all, to have a great time celebrating a great show!
