Doctor Who Club meets every Thursday after school in room 306. Vice President and junior Blanche Jones talked about the hit show.
Q: What’s “Doctor Who” about?
A: “Doctor Who” is basically about a man who is an alien from a race of time lords, basically a race who have been overly exposed to the time vortex, who can travel in time. And he travels in time with multiple people who are called companions; they are boy or girl or alien or dog or whatever. He has the ability to regenerate, which basically means that every time he dies he comes back, just with a different face. And the show follows the doctor and his companions and how he defeats his enemies. It’s just really cool and really complex and confusing at times, but awesome.”
Q: What is the club about? What do you discuss or do?
A: “We try to discuss stuff, but the club members are all freshmen now and they’re very quiet. And we have parties on holidays. We had a Halloween party, we had a Christmas party and we watched Christmas episodes at the Christmas party. We watch episodes that we all agree on watching. When we do discuss stuff, it’s the Christmas specials.”
Q: You watch the episodes while you discuss them?
A: “We watch them and we yell at the characters on the screen because we all have watched the whole thing.”
Q: How many students participate?
A: “18 on a good day, 11 on an okay day and occasionally we have a day where only two people show up.”
Q: Why should people join Doctor Who Club?
A: “To be able to broaden their view of what a plot line can do especially when time travel is involved because once time travel gets involved it gets into this big slimey-wimey ball of stuff.”
