“It’s the end … but the moment has been prepared for.”

Tom Baker’s final season as the star of Doctor Who is the next era of the classic sci-fi series to get a Blu-ray release, and now his final episode, “Logopolis,” will also get a big-screen presentation on one day only — March 13, 2019 — to celebrate the occasion.

You can find participating theaters and reserve tickets from Fathom Events.

‘It’s the end, but the moment has been prepared for’ … Tom Baker’s final season of Doctor Who coming to Blu-ray in 2019

“Logopolis,” written by then-Doctor Who script editor Christopher Bidmead, is the climax of a story arc exploring the effects of entropy on all things — not least of which is the Doctor, his TARDIS and, in a meta way, the show itself.

Bidmead was (and is) a tech journalist who wove his fascination with computers into the series and into this serial, which features a society of programmers who can affect reality itself with “block transfer computation,” a technique the Doctor hopes to use to rejuvenate his ancient TARDIS’ faulty chameleon circuit — but his old enemy the Master has other plans involving cosmic domination, naturally.

“Logopolis” is part of a renaissance era of Doctor Who that was both “getting back to basics” after nearly two long decades and embracing expansive and new ideas of science-fiction worldbuilding that wouldn’t be seen again until the series went away for a while in 1989 and returned in 2005.

Early 1980s episodes show Doctor Who world-building at its biggest
