1978 : The Power of Kroll

  • Oct 10, 2012 · 7:30 PM
  • The NEW Patrick and Caroline's

Season 7a went by really fast, and I'm already feeling the withdrawal signs.

So to satisfy that fix, we're turning back the clock for a story from season 16 and the Key to Time story arc that connected the entire 78-79 series.  The Doctor and K9, along with Time Lady Romana, are given the charge to find and assemble the six segments of eponymous cosmic artifact, in order to prevent the Black Guardian from obtaining the powerful object.

In The Power of Kroll, the fifth of the six adventures, the Doctor and Romana encounter a moon where a struggle between corporate miners and swamp natives invites danger.  Oh yeah, there's a giant squid too.

We also want to recognize the recent July passing of Mary Tamm who is remembered by fans for her cool and elegant portrayal of Romana (I) up until season 17.


We will have the usual snacks / drinks etc. But do plan to brown-bag dinner if you plan on eating dinner late.


If you are turning North onto Rainwater from Falls of Neuse, note that Tealbriar Drive is a circle and you'll want to TURN LEFT on the SECOND Tealbriar Dr.  We are the third house on the right (white with dark shutters).  I'll hang a sign from the mailbox.


Tealbriar is a narrow private street, so be very aware of where you are parked if you are parked on the shoulder.  Give enough exit room for other driveways and cars and use common sense. Cars have to be off the street by 10, but I do not expect we will run that long being a weeknight.

We have a cat, she is evil incarnate so bring any garlic, circles of protection, herbs, firearms if it puts you at ease.
