What we're about
Upcoming events (1)
Come join us at the Winchester in Alamo Heights for a night with the Doctor! We're back in person at a new/old location with the Eleventh Doctor! Following up on our showing of The Gunfighters, this evening, we'll be watching A Town Called Mercy, and then the viewer-requested Power of Three, both from 2012.
A Town Called Mercy was the first televised western since 1966's The Gunfighters. Missing Mexico by 200 miles, the Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith), Amy (Karen Gillian) and Rory (Arthur Darvill) end up in Mercy, Nevada, where something's not quite right... The locals are hostile to strangers, and a border of stone and wood surrounds the town. As the Doctor soon finds out, a gunslinger is behind this, and not just an ordinary one. This episode is a timely one, as it explores how war creates consequences, focusing on what happens to the survivors and those seeking revenge.
There have been many ways to invade the Earth, and the Eleventh Doctor has seen them all – or so he always thought. In the Power of Three, the human race wakes up one morning and discovers the world has been overrun by small cubes, which then proceed to do nothing at all. A plan is afoot, humanity is endangered – but by what and how and, above all, when? Thus begins the Year of the Slow Invasion.
For the first time in his world-saving career, the Doctor has to call upon one of the least of his virtues: patience. And the Ponds face something possibly more terrifying than any world-ending apocalypse: the Doctor is moving in!
It featured the reappearances of Brian Williams and UNIT. Kate Stewart, daughter of the Brigadier, made her first appearance in a piece of BBC-produced television. It marked Amy and Rory's return as full time companions.
Come decked out in your Whovian finery and meet in the front room at the Winchester. We'll be on site by 6:30 so you can order any food or drink you'd like (totally optional!), and the episodes will start at 7:00.
This free event is a private meeting for our members and seating is very limited, so please RSVP. If you RSVP and later find that you are unable to attend, please change your status so someone on the wait list can attend in your place.
