Yeti Invade the UEA!

Prepare for the crossover event of the century! GeekSoc and BadFilm join forces to present a screening of "Downtime", the 1995 semi-professional Doctor Who spin-off filmed at the UEA...

Without the help of the Doctor due to legal issues, Sarah Jane Smith (Elisabeth Sladen) and the Brigadier (Nicholas Courtney) investigate the sinister New World University, apparently overseen by Victoria Waterfield (Deborah Watling). As the Great Intelligence returns to Earth - now for some reason disguised as “Professor Travers” (Jack Watling) - the Brigadier and UNIT must thwart an invasion attempt by a monstrous new breed of Yeti!

Things to look out for include:

- The Library, but with a massive glass pyramid on the top

- The Brigadier wandering around on a grey beach for ages

- A lot of people wearing yellow hats

- The actor who voiced K-9 playing an angry radio DJ

- The first appearance of Kate Lethbridge-Stewart, now a staple of NuWho and star of her own Big Finish spin-off series

- An exciting final confrontation in the Square between the heroes and an old guy doing a Brian Blessed impression

With an impressive 5.4 out of 10 from IMDb and plenty of amusing location work, this will be the perfect evening for Whovians, BadFilm Buffs, and anyone else who wants to see UEA on the silver screen! (No prior Doctor Who knowledge required)

What is Do Something Different?

The Do Something Different Programme is about trying a new activity and sparking your interests! We aim to encourage greater student interaction from across schools, liberations and courses that build your knowledge and skills as individuals. Perhaps you've been looking to try a new sport, attending a live music performance, or dabbling in an academic subject that piques your interest? We collate a wide variety of different activities happening across campus - from sports and games, to trips and extracurricular lectures! 

There's always something happening every single day, and most events are absolutely free or cost very little! The best events will return during the Do Something Different Festival in Semester Two - a week-long celebration in which teaching is suspended for you to try a huge range of activities! Stay tuned for the full Festival programme coming soon! 

If you had a great time at a DSD event, make sure you head to the website and leave your feedback and stories! Tell us about your ideas and what you want to see under Do Something Different.
