Screening: Star Trek Beyond

Join us for Star Trek Beyond, the newest NuTrek! After an extremely dubious first trailer, the first reviews of early screenings have been fantastic! The screening we’ll be seeing is the 2:40 p.m. digital (not 3-D) screening, but we’ll be meeting in line at 2 p.m. Afterward we can grab dinner at one of the eateries in Bella Terra. The link for the Fandango tickets is here: https://tickets.fandango.com/transaction/ticketing/express/ticketboxoffice.aspx?row_count=136872944&mid=188462&tid=AATTF

You have to select a particular seat – I’ve started us at K-11, so try for something close to that.

See you there!

Big Finish Club – Storm Warning, Sword of Orion, & The Stones of Venice

After watching the Night of the Doctor, did you wonder who Charley was? The 8th Doctor mentioned her first, as one of his companions. This month we’ll be beginning the 8th Doctor’s main range audios and meet Charley and discussing “Storm Warning,” “Sword of Orion,” and “The Stones of Venice.”

Haven’t been attending and wonder if you can jump in? Of course! Still worried? Message me!

Below are the links to Big Finish.

Storm Warning – https://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/storm-warning-641

October, 1930. His Majesty’s Airship, the R101, sets off on her maiden voyage to the farthest-flung reaches of the British Empire, carrying the brightest lights of the Imperial fleet. Carrying the hopes and dreams of a breathless nation.

Not to mention a ruthless spy with a top-secret mission, a mysterious passenger who appears nowhere on the crew list, a would-be adventuress destined for the Singapore Hilton… and a Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey.

There’s a storm coming. There’s something unspeakable, something with wings, crawling across the stern. Thousands of feet high in the blackening sky, the crew of the R101 brace themselves. When the storm breaks, their lives won’t be all that’s at stake…

The future of the galaxy will be hanging by a thread.

Sword of Orion – 

https://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/sword-of-orion-642

The human race is locked in deadly combat with the ‘Android Hordes’ in the Orion System. Light years from the front line, the Doctor and Charley arrive to sample the dubious delights of a galactic backwater, little suspecting that the consequences of the Orion War might reach them there. But High Command’s lust for victory knows no bounds.

Trapped aboard a mysterious derelict star destroyer, the Doctor and Charley find themselves facing summary execution. But this is only the beginning of their troubles. The real danger has yet to awaken.

Until, somewhere in the dark recesses of the Garazone System, the Cybermen receive the signal for reactivation…

The Stones of Venice – 

https://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/the-stones-of-venice-643

The Doctor and Charley decide to take a well-deserved break from the monotony of being chased, shot at and generally suffering anti-social behaviour at the hands of others. And so they end up in Venice, well into Charley’s future, as the great city prepares to sink beneath the water for the last time…

Which would be a momentous, if rather dispiriting, event to witness in itself. However, the machinations of a love-sick aristocrat, a proud art historian and a rabid High Priest of a really quite dodgy cult combine to make Venice’s swansong a night to remember. And then there’s the rebellion by the web-footed amphibious underclass, the mystery of a disappearing corpse and the truth behind a curse going back further than curses usually do. The Doctor and Charley are forced to wonder just what they have got themselves involved with this time…

Saturday morning videos

This Saturday morning video event will be hosted by Ming, who will be playing a variety of videos (Gallifrey One videos, shows, movies, cartoons?) from his library. We can’t give you a list yet, but it’s a fun way to spend a Saturday!! Please bring your own food, snacks and drinks to share!

Big Finish Club – The Fearmonger, The Marian Conspiracy, & Human Resources

Sad about no new Who for a while? Join us for our monthly Big Finish Audio Club! 

This month we’ll be discussing “The Fearmonger,” “The Marian Conspiracy,” and “Human Resources” Parts 1 & 2. 

Haven’t been attending and wonder if you can jump in? Of course! Half the stories are stand-alones, and the other half are only partly related to previous stories – only through the story of Lucie Miller, the companion. Still worried? Message me!

Below are the links to Big Finish.

“The Fearmonger” – https://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/the-fearmonger-623

One would-be assassin is in a mental ward. Another’s on the run. Their intended victim is stirring up the mobs. Terrorists are planning a strike of their own. A talk-radio host is loving every minute of it. A Whitehall insider whispers about a mysterious UN operative, with a hidden agenda. Everyone’s got someone they want to be afraid of. It’ll only take a little push for the situation to erupt – and something is doing the pushing. But you can trust the Doctor to put things right. Can’t you?

“The Marian Conspiracy” – https://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/the-marian-conspiracy-624

Tracking a nexus point in time, the Doctor meets Dr Evelyn Smythe, a history lecturer whose own history seems to be rapidly vanishing.

The Doctor must travel back to Tudor times to stabilise the nexus and save Evelyn’s life. But there he meets the Queen of England and use all his skills of diplomacy to avoid ending up on the headman’s block…

“Human Resources” Part 1 – https://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/human-resources-part-1-521

Lucie Miller’s been headhunted to join the staff of Hulbert Logistics, a respectable blue-chip firm in Telford. Great prospects, competitive salary – you don’t have to be mad to work here! But wasn’t she made for better things, like travelling by TARDIS through time and space? The Doctor, meanwhile, has been fired – into a confrontation with the most terrifying of enemies…

“Human Resources” Part 2 – https://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/human-resources-part-2-522

Business as usual? Not at Hulbert Logistics, where staff are facing a menace far worse than the prospect of the office Christmas party. Lucie’s made some new friends and the Doctor’s met some old enemies. But just who will become the Headhunter’s new apprentice? Welcome to the job interview from hell.

Big Finish Club – Whispers of Terror, Land of the Dead, Phobos, & No More Lies

Sad about no new Who for a while? Join us for our monthly Big Finish Audio Club! 

This month we’ll be discussing “Whispers of Terror,” “The Land of the Dead,” “Phobos” and “No More Lies.” Below are the links to Big Finish.

“Whispers of Terror” – https://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/whispers-of-terror-621

The Doctor and Peri find themselves in the Museum of Aural Antiquities, where every sound is stored for posterity – from the speeches of Visteen Krane to security service wire taps and interrogation tapes. But they also find an intruder, mysteriously changed recordings, and a dead body.

Before long the Doctor realises that there is more going on than a simple break-in or murder. How can he defeat a creature that is made of pure sound?

“The Land of the Dead” – https://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/the-land-of-the-dead-622

Landing in Alaska, the Doctor and Nyssa encounter a group of people in a most unusual house, cut off not only by the harsh climate but by their individual secrets and obsessions.

Millionaire Shaun Brett is utilising chunks of the local area to construct a shrine to his dead father. But when deadly creatures start roaming outside, and a terrifying discovery is made inside the house, the Doctor realises that Brett has unleashed an unimaginably ancient force.

“Phobos” – https://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/phobos-519

The TARDIS lands on Phobos, moon of Mars – where extreme sports nuts of the future indulge their passion for gravity-boarding and wormhole-jumping. But there’s something lurking in the shadows, something infinitely old and infinitely dangerous. It’s not for nothing that ‘Phobos’ is the ancient word for ‘fear’…

“No More Lies” – https://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/no-more-lies-520

What links a disintegrating spaceship to a posh garden party, where a wealthy couple are celebrating their love for each other in style? Gatecrashers the Doctor and Lucie think they know the answer. But they’re not the only uninvited guests – ferocious alien warriors riding pterodactyl-like Vortisaurs are about to make their entrance!

Happy listening!
