|The Knights are well-fed at their monthly meetings.|
We're purposely mixing our sci fi pop culture references to make a point. Well, two points.
Number 1: This is a site for Dr. Who fans - both old and new.
Number 2: It's also about all manners of science fiction and related interests - from television shows, movies and superheroes to comic books, anime and websites. And occasionally we are guilty of some random piece of fandom ... just because.
Enough with the history.

Other Knights (for the sake of clarity - yes, we have both male and female members) gathered in a separate room to record a podcast. The topic was to share our thoughts on the recent Disney purchase of the Star Wars franchise from George Lucas. The general feeling was that the series is in dire need of fresh ideas, as long as the new direction is not too Mickey Mouse. It was even suggested - jokingly, we think - that Disney erect a "fake" movie set for Lucas to visit while the real movies are safely being filmed elsewhere. Many plot ideas were tossed around, including everything from a continuation of the story with the original cast ("The Wrath of Han," anyone?) to handing off the series to a new set of characters ("Star Wars: The Next Generation")? You can check out the podcast here.

Whatever you do, don't miss what our friends at the Dr. Who Club of Western Massachusetts have planned for Conbust on March 30 at Smith College in Northampton.
|Even Mets fans are allowed.|
The best part? You don't need psychic paper for admission to the Knights. You can sign up to follow this blog on the main page, via our Twitter feed (The_Knights87) and on Facebook (Knights of the White Guardian). If you'd like to take the next step and attend a "meeting" (in quotes because they are rather loosely structured), send an email to DWhoKnight@aol.com. Our calendar, including our April 27 meeting in Chicopee, is listed on this site's main page as well.
All are welcome.
