Would you like to see a Classic Doctor Who story screened in Glasgow?

At our last meetup, there was a discussion about the possibility of the society running screenings of classic Doctor Who stories and recently a cinema in London has decided to screen newly-discovered and previously lost Troughton stories ‘The Web of Fear’ and ‘The Enemy of the World’.

We can do this. Two of our members, myself included, have trained with the Glasgow Film Theatre in how to run fully licensed cinema screenings and the society has been in touch with the British Film Institute to discuss possbilities.

We can run screenings of Classic Doctor Who.

The real question is – do you want a screening of Classic Doctor Who?

Would you pay money for a ticket to see a story in a cinema when you might already own it at home? Well I’m excited about the idea of us all coming together for a great night out, see a story together, having drinks and a laugh at the same time.

Please fill out the survey below!

You can come and discuss the idea of screenings with the rest of the group at tomorrow’s (Sunday 16th) Glasgow Doctor Who Society meetup, which you can join here.

Glasgow Doctor Who Events Update

Thank you, everyone, for taking the time to answer our poll questions on the possibility of a Glasgow Doctor Who convention.

On the plus side, we have had more responses to the polls than we expected. There appear to be a fair number of people interested in the idea of Glasgow events and that is a very positive sign for the future.

However, from the responses we have received, any convention we may hope to organise in 2014 would be risky at best.

Attempting to match the number and type of guest attendees would expect with the price they would be willing to pay for a ticket is simply bringing us to the conclusion that, at this point in time, it would be a struggle to break even on any such event, never mind make money for our nominated charity.

Sadly, that means we will have to put the idea on hold while we continue to build the group’s numbers to the point where we are confident in being able to successfully run an event without such a high financial risk.

Thanks again for your support. Sorry we’re not quite in a position to make it happen… yet.

But who knows? Maybe 2015?

The best thing we can all do to help make an event a reality in future is to keep telling people about the group on Twitter and Facebook and, above all, keep joining in with all the fun at our regular meetings!

We hope to see you all at our regular group meetings at the Crystal Palace on Jamaica Street, from 6:30pm on the first and third Sunday of every month.

Cheers!

Are you interested in a Doctor Who convention in Glasgow?

Hello, everyone!

The Glasgow Doctor Who Society are considering the possibility of arranging a one-day Doctor Who convention in 2014, most likely around May or June.

For the sake of clarity, we are not talking about a massive Collectormania style event – Showmasters already have that kind of thing covered brilliantly and we have neither the resources nor the desire to compete on that level.

We’re talking about a convention more along the lines of Dimensions, Regenerations or Whooverville – a more intimate affair with around a hundred or so fans.

But we need to know that the support is there before we start planning in any detail.

If the event goes ahead, it would be a one day convention and standard admission would include access to all guest talks in the main convention hall plus at least one free autograph from each guest in attendance.

With that in mind, we would really like as many people as possible to answer the following four questions for us;

Please answer all of the questions as honestly as possible – if you wouldn’t attend unless the entire cast and crew from the last 8 years are there, we need to know that! So don’t tell us that you would turn up for an Auton and a photograph of a cameraman unless you mean it!

We will hopefully have an idea whether this is going to be possible in the very near future!

Cheers!
