Special Meeting – 4 August 2013!

Hi, everyone!

Sorry we haven’t updated in a while – we’ve all been incredibly busy since the series ended!

As you will probably know, the identity of the actor chosen to play the 12th Doctor will be announced in a special live TV show, Doctor Who Live! The Next Doctor, at 7:oopm on BBC1 on 4 August 2013.

Doctor Who Live!

Doctor Who Live!

As you will also know, 4 August 2013 is the next meeting for us Glasgow Doctor Who Society members!

We have therefore decided to book the Family Area downstairs at the Crystal Palace so that we can watch the show live at the meeting!

We will be meeting slightly earlier than usual – 6:00pm – in order to have a quick chat before the show starts.

Hope loads of you can make it for what is bound to be a very special event for all Doctor Who fans!

Just remember – we will be downstairs for this one meeting, and it starts at 6:00pm instead of 7:00pm! Wouldn’t want anyone to miss out!


What did you think? – The Crimson Horror – Meeting tonight Sunday 5th May 2013

What did you think of last night’s episode, The Crimson Horror?

Spooky spectacular or horrific horror?
Join us tonight at the Glasgow Doctor Who Society as we discuss the episode, you can find a link to our meetup group here – http://meetu.ps/vR33v

To get discussions going here’s my thoughts of last night’s episode from my own video blog

My name is David Cherry and I’ve been a member of the society since 2009. I run a media production company on the southside of Glasgow and I’m the media co-ordinator for the Glasgow Doctor Who Society.

The Cold War – Meeting & Member Vlog Review

Hello everyone!

David, here.

Did you enjoy last night’s episode, ‘Cold War‘?

The return of the Ice Warriors! David Warner! Liam Cunningham!

Here’s the immediate reaction last night from myself and my younger brother Stuart, just after watching the episode last night.

What do you think? Did you do a video blog review? Let us know and we’ll showcase your video blog here on the Glasgow Doctor Who Society website!

The Ice Warriors first appeared in Doctor Who in 1967 in the Second Doctor story ‘The Ice Warriors’ (funnily enough). They went on to appear with Patrick Troughton’s Second Doctor again in ‘The Seeds of Death’ and later appeared twice with Jon Pertwee’s Third Doctor.

Last night was their first appearance on the show in nearly 40 years, although they’ve been kept alive in additional literature and Big Finish releases.

Here’s a clip from their first story –

Join us in the next couple of days for the next Glasgow Doctor Who Society video blog, where you’ll see what everyone thinks about the episode and what we got up to at the meeting tonight!

If you’d like to appear in the video blog, or simply come and join the discussions, you can join us tonight at the Crystal Palace pub on Jamaica Street in Glasgow city centre.

The Glasgow Doctor Who Society vs BBC2’s Eggheads!

Yesterday, a team from the Glasgow Doctor Who Society filmed an episode of the popular BBC2 quiz show, Eggheads.

There’s no guarantee that our episode will make it to air but, if it does, it will hopefully hit the airwaves later this year.

Did our team make omelettes out of the Eggheads? Or did they leave with egg on their faces?

We’re afraid we can’t let you know just yet! We won’t even tell you what our team name was for the competition! You’ll just have to tune in (hopefully later this year) to find out!

All we can tell you for the time being is that all of the Eggheads were absolutely lovely, as was our host, Jeremy Vine, and our team enjoyed the experience enormously. Thank you, Eggheads, for having us, and for making us feel so welcome!

To tide you over until all is revealed, here’s a little picture of our team at the studio…
