We're the University of Birmingham Doctor Who Society, or DocSoc for short.
DocSoc is a society where you can express your love for all things Doctor Who (both classic and new) as well as its various spin-off shows including Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures. Additionally, we are aiming to involve content from the Doctor Who Extended Universe - so if you're more of a comics-person or bookworm, never fear for there is a place for all levels of Doctor Who Fans in our society!
We run events every Tuesday evening (during term time), ranging from watching episodes of both the new and classic series, arts & craft sessions, quizzes, pizza nights, pub nights, bowling and more. We occasionaly run events with the other nerdy societies (e.g. PotterSoc & LockSoc), as well as interesting collaborations with other societies like TeaSoc - last year (2020/21) we collaborated with many of these other societies and arranged the intersociety quiz, which we will be running again this year!
In previous years, we ran a trip to Cardiff (previously to the Doctor Who Experience) visiting filming locations the show has used over the last 10+ years.
Every kind of member is welcome in DocSoc, from those who've only seen a few episodes, to those who've seen every episode that still exists. New members can joing at any time and we welcome any event suggestions all throughout the year!
For more information, and to keep track of our events, join our Facebook Group and check out our Instagram Page. We also have a Discord Server, which, during the 2020 COVID-19 Pandemic, we used to screen episodes and run activity nights online - the server will still be in use to allow the wider DocSoc community (Current Students and Alumni Members) to connect outside of our meetings and announcements from the Committee will still be displayed here so it's worth joining that too! We're also expanding our online presence so the Twitter account may be revived in due course too!
For anyone interested in joining, we will have a stall at the Fresher's fair on Wednesday the 22nd of September 2021, so if you're interested, come on down and have a chat with our committee members! We'd love to meet you all!
If you have any questions, you can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or head to any of our social media pages where you can find and contact any of the committee members.
