BBC's Doctor Who is the longest-running science fiction television program in the world. Ever.

It began life on November 23rd, 1963, featuring William Hartnell as the time-traveling Doctor. The series ran 26 years and ended in December, 1989, with Sylvester McCoy in the role of the Doctor. An attempt was made to bring the show back to the small screen in 1996. Finally in 2005, the series was revived by Queer as Folk creator Russell T. Davies. This time around, the show is a big-budget production and is one of the BBC's flagship shows. Currently, the Doctor is played by Matt Smith after a great run by David Tennant.


On Doctor Who Night (which, coincidentally, is OutWorlders' longest-running event, reaching its 10th Anniversary in February 2011), we enjoy episodes old and new, featuring stories from all 11 Doctors.

Doctor Who Night Reboot begins Sept 15th 2012 and will be the second Saturday each month following. We'll start with a 15-month Best Of series leading up to the 50th Anniversary in November of 2013.

Gathering starts at 7pm, and showtime is 8pm.

Its very easy to find. Basically take 285 to Buford Hwy (on the NE side of the loop) and turn to go inside the perimeter. Go less than half a mile and turn left onto Chestnut (look for the Happy Karaoke place). Go to the first stop sign at Pineland. Cross over Pineland and we're the second driveway on the left.

 

The first few people can park in our driveway, but parking is not available on Chestnut. You can park on Pineland or possible in the church parking lot on the corner of Pineland and Chestnut.

The BBC's Doctor Who Homepage (new series):
http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/ (the official Doctor Who site with a brand-new look to coincide with the debut of the New Series! This is an equally massive site, with more features than I've ever seen on any other site. There are video diaries from cast and crew during filming of the series, there's behind the scenes specials, there's a Flash-based game based on the episode "Dalek" which is absolutely amazing ... there's quite simply too much stuff to even describe here.)
