Tonight is Doctor Who Appreciation Night at the Alamo Drafthouse Westlakes featuring two episodes starring David Tennant as the 10th incarnation of the problem-solving Time Lord. The episodes on tap are The Impossible Planet and The Satan Pit, originally broadcast in 2006.
Showtime is Wednesday, February 15, 2012 at 7:30 PM at the Alamo Drafthouse Westlakes (1255 SW Loop 410, San Antonio, TX). This event is sponsoered by Doctor Who Fans Unite and, as always, admission is free but you will need a ticket from the Box Office to secure your spot in theater.
In this two-parter the Doctor’s TARDIS lands in Sanctuary Base 6, a deep-space mining and exploration facility. The Doctor (David Tennant) and Rose (Billie Piper) discover undecipherable alien writing and run into the very creepy aliens called The Ood who turn out to be servants of the space station’s crew. Said crew is engaged in exploring the mysterious planet Krop Tor which appears to be stably in place on the precipice of a black hole. There is a large inexplicable energy source buried on the planet and as the explorers drill closer the Ood transmit ominous messages from an awakening enity known at The Beast.
