We started out as Dr. Who Club, and watch that at most of our Meetups, but a lot of us are fans of other series like Torchwood, Downton Abbey, Sherlock, Misfits, Red Dwarf and other BBC Series. We have had a few Downton Abbey Meetups already. Dues are just $5 a year! This group is about meeting people and creating community. Please include a picture of you in your profile and your full name. If you RSVP to an event please show up or update your RSVP as soon as possible.

What is Dr. Who? As you may know, Doctor Who and his companions travel through space and time in the Tardis, having many great adventures. It's listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest-running science fiction series. The classic series ran from 1963-1989 and the new series has run from 2005-present. In addition to the regular TV series, there have been spin-offs, a cartoon version, radio plays, books, toys and all manner of related merchandise, movies, a magazine, live events, computer games, and non-computer role-playing games.

"Dr." v. "Doctor" Doctor is generally the form used for Doctor Who used by BBC. However, at times the shortened form has been used. We use the shortened version of the word in the name of our group, because the url name was available, as well as vanity names on social networking sites that we are on (see below). We would have loved to have used the more canonically correct form, but chose to use the form that was available for the most consistency, and to make it easy for people to find our pages. The Meetup site is the most important tool for our events, so it is important to sign up here if you would like to hear about our events in a timely manner.

What is this group about? The Western Massachusetts Dr. Who Club meets to watch or discuss episodes, and whatever fun and relevant activities we think of. Often we chat after the episode and bandy about various theories.

Who is the group open to? Members have a variety of experience levels...some are new and some have been following for many years. Don't be intimidated! You can jump with watching Doctor Who at any point and will soon get most of it...and you definitely don't have to have seen Classic Doctor Who to understand the new series (2005-present)...though we watch both. Members are a mix of genders and ages (mostly 20's-50's). You have to be 18+ to be a member of Meetup, though sometimes a member will bring a child with them to an event.

Here's a sampling of what we get into:

Series ~ Classic Dr. Who, New Series, spin-offs like Torchwood

Doctor Who Films ~ Dr. Who and the DaleksDaleks' Invasion Earth: 2150 A.D. etc.

Actors and regenerations: 1 William Hartnell, 2 Patrick Troughton, 3 Jon Pertwee, 4 Tom Baker, 5 Peter Davison, 6 Colin Baker, 7 Sylvester McCoy, 8 Paul McGann, 9 Christopher Eccleston, 10 David Tennant, 11 Matt Smith, 12 Peter Capaldi
