Doctor Who thing of the day: screenings of classic stories in NYC

Resurrection of the Daleks Doctor Who Peter Davison

The Paley Center for Media in New York City is hosting a series of screenings of classic episodes of Doctor Who, beginning this Saturday, June 30, with the 1984 Peter Davison story “Resurrection of the Daleks.” From The New York Times:

Fans of the modern “Doctor Who” — the fast-paced, high-tech, hyper-verbal science-fiction series that will begin its seventh season later this year — most likely know that the show has a long, storied and intensely codified history, stretching back 49 years and nearly 800 episodes. But if they’re American, the odds are good that they’ve never seen the show’s earlier incarnation, which ran on the BBC from 1963 to 1989.

Ha. Real fans obsessively and religiously devoured the classic episodes when they started airing in the U.S. on PBS in the early 80s. But it’s nice that those who’ve only recently discovered the show via the reboot will have a chance to see some of the great older stories.

See The Paley Center for Media for more info on the screenings. If you attend, let me know if they’re well attended and what the crowd was like.

(If you stumble across a cool Doctor Who thing, feel free to email me with a link.)
