What we're about


We're a group of Doctor Who fans who like to get together and meet and hang out, whether it's watching episodes of Doctor Who or hanging out around the city. Whether you first watched the British science fiction show on PBS or BBC America, we hold inclusive, accessible events for all Who fans.

Our Meetups are held around the city of Chicago. We hold screenings at Third Coast Comics, Omega Station, and LaCatrina Cafe. Think of this as a way to meet other Who fans and enjoy your favorite show!

[VIRTUAL] Halloween Big Finish Listening Party: SPARE PARTS

We wanted to hold a really cool Halloween event for Doctor Who...and we're proud to premiere the first of our full-length Big Finish listening parties. Spare Parts is a very early Big Finish audio featuring the Fifth Doctor and Nyssa. New Series stories like "Rise of the Cyberman/Age of Steel" and "World Enough and Time" have integrated concepts from this story. Spare Parts makes for atmospheric, Halloween listening. However, we have to advise that there are incidents portrayed in this audio that may be unsettling for some people. To quote the synopsis from the Big Finish website: On a dark frozen planet where no planet should be, in a doomed city with a sky of stone, the last denizens of Earth's long-lost twin will pay any price to survive, even if the laser scalpels cost them their love and hate and humanity. And in the mat-infested streets, around tea-time, the Doctor and Nyssa unearth a black market in second-hand body parts and run the gauntlet of augmented police and their augmented horses. And just between the tramstop and the picturehouse, their worst suspicions are confirmed: the Cybermen have only just begun, and the Doctor will be, just as he always has been, their saviour... Please join us. Cosplay is not only welcome, it's encouraged. Hope to see you there via Zoom! ----------------------- You will need to join us via Zoom.us, which is available for Windows/Mac/Linux.
