It's hard to believe, but it's been 20 years since Paul McGann first stepped into the TARDIS and the role of the Eighth Doctor. Though he had the least amount of screen time of any Doctor, he's more than made up for it with his many fabulous audiodramas and those were acknowledged as Doctor Who Canon when the Eighth Doctor name-checked many of his companions in the prequel to the 50th Anniversary short, The Night of the Doctor.

To add to the overall AWESOMENESS of the evening, we are privileged to have Earth's Towel Day Ambassador in attendance, our very own Lisa O (! In honor of this auspicious occasion, we'll be taking a group photo in the theatre of all the hoopy froods in attendance outfitted with their requisite towels. We are listed among the official celebrations for Towel Day 2016 and we'll be posting the photo to as many different social media platforms as possible in celebration. We'll be taking the picture in the theater at approximately 7:20, so come decked out in your Hitchhiker/Whovian finery, bring your towel and whatever you do- DON'T PANIC!

The preshow starts at 7:00 and the episodes begin screening at 7:30.

Come decked out in your Whovian finery and join us for a fantastic evening!
