Michaelmas 2017

7-Oct 7:00pm JCR, Newnham Episode Screening Utopia/The Sound of Drums/Last of the Time Lords – Making up for the lack of traditional finale episode in Easter term! And what could be cosier than a large group of Whovians in a small JCR, huddled around a TV, passing round snacks?

11-Nov 7:00pm Department of Earth Sciences, Downing Site Episode Screening The Tenth Planet – In anticipation of the First Doctor’s return in the upcoming Christmas Special, the Patrex Cardinal ushered us into his place of work to view William Hartnell’s final serial as the incumbent Doctor.
