We haven’t had one of these since March, but I’m now very happy to state that this Saturday, June 29th, at 2pm, there will again be a Classic Doctor Who screening at the Nerdist Showroom at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles.
This month, we’ll be screening one of the best (and arguably THE best) stories in the entirety of the series, 1984’s “The Caves of Androzani,” which was Fifth Doctor Peter Davison’s finest hour as he attempts to save his new companion Peri (Nicola Bryant) from a slow death by Spectrox toxemia. It’s a real bad thing. Along the way, there’s intrigue among drugs smugglers, corrupt politicians, and petty military types, plus a creepy guy in a mask. What fun!
As always, the screenings are 100% FREE, and we’ll be doing trivia contests and prize-giveaways in between the episodes. It’s hosted by yours truly, and if you mention you saw this post, I’ll shake your hand vigorously. It’s lots of fun, bring your friends! Go here to RSVP and I’ll see you on Saturday!
