[edit]

Time to fire up your TARDIS* and materialize at California State University at Sacramento for the Doctor Who Celebration. Be sure to set your time gizmo for this weekend, and double-check your dimensional circuitry — it is somewhat difficult to confer with 2-D beings when one is a confirmed 3-D.

Doctor Who, for the uninitiated and confused, is sort of the low-budget BBC equivalent of "Star Trek." The main difference is that Captain Kirk's escapades were canceled after three years, while the good Doctor is still going strong after 24 years of time travel and adventuring.

The Doctor undergoes periodic transformations (six so far), and this celebration is hosted by the third Doctor, Jon Pertwee, who played the Timelord as an elegant daredevil from 1970 to 1975.

The event will manifest itself in the CSUS music recital hall, 6000 J St., from noon to 8 p.m. (so you can make it home in time for that night's episode of Doctor Who, 10 p.m. on Channel 6, KVIE) Saturday and from noon to 6 p.m. Sunday.

A special addition to this celebration will be a 48-foot exhibition of the show's most infamous monsters and villains. Pertwee's classic companion, Bessie, will be there, too. (Remember? Bessie is the yellow vintage car built especially for the show.)

K-9, Daleks, sonic screwdrivers and Jelly Babies will all make their appearance this weekend, sponsored by Lionheart Television International. Tickets are $5 for Channel 6 members, $7.50 for nonmembers. For details, call Channel 6 Special Events at
