  • Watch Party (Episodes7 & 8)

    My Way Tavern

    I apologize for the extremely late notice! Once again Life has interfered with the plans. The goal this season was to have an event every other week to watch two episodes of Doctor Who Series 11, with Jodie Whittaker as the new Doctor. We are going to watch episodes: 7. Kerblam! @ 7pm A mysterious message arrives in a package addressed to the Doctor, leading her, Graham, Yaz and Ryan to investigate the warehouse moon orbiting Kandoka, and the home of the galaxy's largest retailer, Kerblam. 8. The Witchfinders @ 8pm The Doctor, Ryan, Graham and Yaz arrive in 17th century Lancashire and become embroiled in a witch trial, run by the local landowner. As fear stalks the land, the arrival of King James I only serves to intensify the witch hunt. As River Song so eloquently puts it, "Spoilers!". We ask anyone who has already seen the episode prior to one of our events to NOT talk about it until the episode has finished airing that evening. This allows all of our participants to enjoy the episodes with NO SPOILERS!! NOTICE: We are now asking everyone for a $ 1.00 cash donation at our Meetup events to help pay for our annual Meetup website fees. Thank you!

  • Wibbly Wobbly Catch Up Timey Wimey

    Mark's House

    In the words of Marvin, the Paranoid Android (The Hitchhikers Guild to the Galaxy), "Life? Don't talk to me about life." Life has a way of interfering with the best laid plans. The goal this season was to have an event every other week to watch two episodes of Doctor Who Series 11, with Jodie Whittaker as the new Doctor . To try and get back on track, we are going to have a Wibbly Wobbly Catch Up Timey Wimey marathon of episodes: 3. Rosa @ 2pm 4. Arachnids in the UK @ 3pm 5. The Tsuranga Conundrum @4pm 6. Demons of the Punjab @5pm You do not have to watch every episode. This event will a “come and go” as you please. This is a non-catered/pot luck event. Bring snacks and drinks to snack on, some to share if you wish. If there is enough attendance and everyone wants to pitch in, I’m sure ordering pizza or other dishes could be arranged. As River Song so eloquently puts it, "Spoilers!". We ask anyone who has already seen the episode prior to one of our events to NOT talk about it until the episode has finished airing that evening. This allows all of our participants to enjoy the episodes with NO SPOILERS!!
