We’ve survive the Mayan Apocalypse and Christmas, so we’ll be celebrating the New Year and congratulating ourselves with a double dose of The Doctor! BBC Home Entertainment, Io9.com, and SF in SF bring you some more Doctor Who to usher in 2013!! For a special treat…we’ll have a DALEK among us! The Bay Area’s very own Tiki Dalek will be making a rare appearance for photos with attendees. AND — Cargo Cult Books will be present, with a nice selection of Whovian materials for sale — didn’t get what you wanted from the Doctor for Christmas? Bet you’ll find it at Cargo Cult’s table!

A Christmas Carol follows newlyweds Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill) as they are trapped on a crashing space liner. The only way the Doctor (Matt Smith) can rescue them is to save the soul of a lonely old miser, Kazran Sardick (Michael Gambon, the Harry Potter films). But is Sardick, the richest man in Sardicktown, beyond redemption? And what is lurking in the fogs of Christmas Eve?

The Doctor (Matt Smith) is joined by a stellar cast, including Claire Skinner (Outnumbered), Bill Bailey (Black Books), Arabella Weir (The Fast Show) and Alexander Armstrong (Armstrong & Miller), in a festive, emotional special, packed full of Christmas thrills and chills. The special, set during World War II, sees Madge Arwell and her two children, Lily and Cyril, evacuated to a draughty old house in Dorset, where the caretaker is a mysterious young man in bow tie, and a big blue parcel is waiting for them under the tree. They are about to enter a magical new world and learn that a Time Lord never forgets his debts…

SF in SF will be THE place to be on the last Saturday of every month…Join us for classic episodes, giveaways, and some great Whovian entertainment! Have some popcorn, order up a Sonic Screwdriver at the bar, and sit back and enjoy! Our hostess with the mostest, Charlie Jane Anders, will catch you up on all the classic Doctor Who lore, stories, actors, and timelords!
