Liberty High School seems to have something for everyone searching for an extracurricular club. One of the quirkier new editions, created this year by club president and senior Hannah Park, is the Doctor Who Club.
“Doctor Who Club was started not only to celebrate the longest-running sci-fi series on television, but also to introduce others to British culture and the fandom surrounding the Doctor” the show’s time-traveling hero, Park said.
Club members participate in various Doctor Who-themed games, and occasionally watch episodes of the show. One of the more interesting activities is the writing of “Trock,” or Timelord rock, a genre of music well known among the show’s fans that celebrates the show and its characters.
“My favorite part of the club is interacting with the other members and knowing that there are other geeky people out there besides myself,” Park said. “It’s very welcoming.”
Those interested in becoming a member of Doctor Who Club — longtime Whovians, sci-fi fanatics or fans new to the genre — can attend a club meeting any Thursday after school in room 518.
