The Romance of Paris - CITY OF DEATH

For some of you new Who fans, you may have one basic philosophical question that you're asking - is City of Death really worth all of its accolades? Is it the greatest classic Who story ever created?
 
In February, you'll get your chance to learn for yourself, as we'll be featuring it as part of our screenings at Third Coast.
 
Written by "David Agnew" (or "Douglas Adams and Graham Williams on a coffee-and-whisky-fueled writing binge"), City of Death focuses on Paris in 1979 - a city with its own bouquet, but in a year more like a table wine than a fine vintage. Filled with sparkling dialogue, intelligent twists, and a surprise cameo, City of Death is a must-watch for any serious new (or classic) Who fan.
 
Think of it as a valentine - a 90 minute foray into how exceptionally good Doctor Who could get. It was, according to your view, either the cornerstone of an exceptionally inventive season or the only bright spot in Douglas Adams' tenure as script editor. (The truth lies somewhere in the middle, if you ask us).
 
So please, take a brief respite from the chill outside, and join us for a classic Who story.

    Had to switch RSVP to "no" at last minute. Sorry--maybe next month!

    It looks like tomorrow night might be a Standing Room situation so we may need to be friendlier than usual. We may end up with 20+. Anyone with camping chairs should pack them!

    Had to turn my RSVP to a "no" -- I have a medical test on Thursday evening and for what it's testing, it's best I get a full night's sleep beforehand. So if there was a waiting list, someone can grab my place!

    I know this must be informational, but I don't understand the information...??

      Pat - this is a placeholder for future events. Mostly, I'll need to edit for episode selection, give a description, etc. (Plus, the text is in response to a Meetup glitch earlier)
