ROCK HILL, S.C. — Calling all Doctor Who fans—prepare to jump in the TARDIS and head to a special event at Winthrop University on Friday, Nov. 22.

The Winthrop Literary Society will host a Doctor Who anniversary celebration: the popular science fiction show on BBC has been on the air for the past 50 years and has garnered millions of fans worldwide. The show follows the adventures of Doctor, a Time Lord who travels in his time machine—the TARDIS—and uses his extensive knowledge of technology, history and science to prevent any crisis he encounters.

The society’s celebration begins at 7 p.m. in Dinkins Auditorium. It will feature trivia and prizes, including the soundtrack and a Doctor Who hat, and costume play with a contest for the Best Doctor, Best Monster and Best Other Character.

The event will also show the episodes “Dalek,” “Blink” and “The Doctor’s Wife.”
