Encore

Thursday 10th April at 7.30pm

Following the phenomenal success of the new Dr Who, David Tennant steps into the role of the tenth Time Lord. Billie Piper returns as the Doctor’s feisty young companion, Rose Tyler, and together they will travel through time and space battling new and returning aliens and monsters. Tonight we kick off the encore screening of series 2 with Dr Who: The Christmas Invasion.
Jackie Tyler is at home preparing for the festive season, unsure of whether or not her daughter Rose will be home in time, when she hears the familiar sound of the TARDIS.
Mickey, who is hard at work, also hears it. They both race across the estate, just in time to witness its glorious, chaotic crash-landing. The doors open and, much to their delight, out steps Rose – and a complete stranger. Except it isn’t a stranger.; it’s the Doctor. Disorientated, yet overwhelmed to see them, he takes a few minutes to regain his balance and considers what it is he wants to tell them, before yelling: “Oh, I know! Merry Christmas!” Then promptly collapses. The Doctor falls in and out of consciousness, with Rose and Jackie powerless to help him. In a bid to boost Rose’s spirits, Mickey suggests a spot of Christmas shopping, but they soon find themselves under attack by a sinister brass band of masked Santas. They are not the only ones with problems. Prime Minister Harriet Jones has just been informed that a British space probe, on its way to Mars for a Christmas Day landing, has gone missing. It has been kidnapped by a monstrous race known as the Sycorax, who are set on taking over the world.
