Welcome to the University of St Andrews Doctor Who Appreciation Society!
Hi! Did you know that St Andrews has a fantastic society full of friendly faces, food, Doctor Who, and occasionally bad dancing? It does, and we're it! A year's membership is £3 (which you'll eat in biscuits in no time) and we meet every two weeks to watch some episodes of Doctor Who, eat snacks, have a little quiz, and laugh at everything that could possibly be taken as innuendo. Prose is hard, so here's some bullet points:
- We alternate between New and Old Who. See our upcoming viewings here.
- We meet in the Large Rehearsal Room in the Union.
- You'll need to follow our Facebook page to catch when we're having events (generally once a fortnight).
- We have society meals at the end of each semester.
- Our membership cards are bigger on the inside! Buy your membership here.
2020 Coronavirus Update
For Semester 1 of 2020, some of our regular activities are unfortunately suspended or somewhat modified. Rest assured that our fortnightly viewings are still taking place! They will be via Netflix Party (for New Who episodes) and via Zoom (for Classic Who episodes).
Interested in joining?
You can become a DocSoc member at any point in the year. Buy membership at the link above, or email us at email@example.com. Watch the video below to get an idea of what it's like to be a member!
Years and years ago, in the midsts of time, a few friends gathered in the basement of the then named Hamilton Hall, to watch some Doctor Who, do a bit of heckling and in general have a good old time. 15 years on, and here we stand - an affiliated society, with a large membership that only grows larger every year as love for the Doctor travels. We like this.
Every fortnight, we gather together to enjoy adventures through time and space with the Doctor. We make jokes. We meet other Whovians. We realise that the BBC budget has grown so much since 1963, and we are grateful for it.
The society is run *cough* by a small committee of 16 students. For more details on how the society is run, see our constitution.
Hope to see you soon!
Thank you, internet-adventurer, for checking out our website. You are most welcome along to any of our viewings - whether you don't have a clue what a TARDIS is, or if you've tried to build one, it doesn't matter. Come along, have some cake, and see what all the fuss is about!
