The Caretaker at Grandview!

Join us tonight at 9 for The Caretaker at the Grandview Theatre!

Also, Isa will be on hand with her Tumblr project!  From Isa:
Heads-up: as some of you may know, I am working on part of a project with Tumblr. The project is a scrapbook that will be sent to Peter Capaldi for Christmas. My contribution is a copy of the poster used at the Grandview Theatre for the S8 premiere, with messages for Capaldi on it from all of us. A group project, if you will.
If you would like to write a message to Capaldi on the poster, or a word or two about what Doctor Who means to you, the poster will be at the Grandview this Saturday during the show.
This will be the LAST weekend it will be at the Grandview. If you'd like to write something but can't make it to the show at the Grandview, contact me privately or post on the Facebook page and we can make other arrangements.
 Hope to see you there!

Of Polls and Podcasts...

Hello everyone! 

You may have noticed that I created polls to give fans a chance to rate the latest episodes of Doctor Who.  I am going to attempt to do this with every new episode (although I missed 2 week's worth).  I included a poll for Listen in addition to Time Heist. Please bear with me, and many thanks to those who have voted! 

Next, I would like to mention a new podcast featuring our very own Charles and Jesse! Next Stop Everywhere will include episode recaps, news, analysis, and predictions about Doctor Who will be discussed on this weekly podcast.

They have just released their 5th episode! Charles and Jesse discuss the fifth episode of the 8th series: Time Heist. 
You can find them on iTunes, Facebook, or at Next Stop Everywhere. Give them a listen and be sure to rate and review their podcasts-it helps others find them! :)

A Scrapbook for Capaldi

Hi everyone!  Isa would like our help with a new project!  Here are the details from Isa herself:
Working on a project and I need input from as many people as possible.
One of my followers on Tumblr is creating a scrapbook that she is going to send to Capaldi for Christmas. She has asked for contributions from Whovians all over.
My submission is going to be a copy of the poster that was up at the Grandview for the premiere. I'd like for people to write messages on it: the front would be one or two words about what Doctor Who means to you, and the back would have short messages from fans directly to Capaldi.
I will have the poster with me at the next two episodes at the Grandview for people to write their messages and words on.
 Great idea, Isa!

If you would like to take part, arrive a little early (or stay a little late) so you have time to add your thoughts to the poster.  Thank you!
