Just in time for the holidays (and apologies if you thought this was a rerun of THE DAEMONS - Meetup glitch, and my apologies for the mixup).
For our holiday screening, we're going to laugh it up just a little bit - first, we're going to catch the 1999 spoof CURSE OF THE FATAL DEATH, which contains plenty of naughty humor, gratuitous celebrity cameos, and more cool things than you can shake a stick at. Originally done as a charity one-off, it's Steven Moffat's Doctor Who debut as a writer, and....well, it's a pretty funny skit.
In the spirit of our recent joint MST3K event, we're going to have audience members riffing on a classic Doctor Who....well, that's a lie. We'll be watching Terminus, a Peter Davison story that....well, I'm not quite sure what it's about. There's a large dog thing, and Nyssa leaves, and Tegan and Turlough have deep, meaningful conversations about life, love, and laughter in a ventilation shaft. In short, it's perfect for Mystery Theater Science-style riffing.
(So much so that we may show it without captions in its VHS-style glory, because all CGI and captions reveal is that this story....isn't very good.)
But please join us for a loving and laughing look back at the 50th anniversary year....by celebrating that sometimes, our favorite show has serious missteps.
And thank God we will never show Time and the Rani.
