Examining Doctor Who in light of faith

With tomorrow being the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, I wanted to write a clever, witty, insightful column about the show. But I would be hard-pressed to do a better job of it than E. Stephen Burnett and the folks at Christ and Pop Culture, who have spent the month compiling a collection of such articles. So instead of me going on about it, I’m going to direct you over there to read about:

Part 1: Mad Man with a Box
Part 2: Genre Roots

Part 3: Exterminating Evil
Part 4: The Trip of a Lifetime

Part 5: Music for a Mad Man
Part 6: Those Complicated Companions
Part 7: The Episode I Never Want to See Again
Part 8: Christianity and “Whomanism”
Part 9: From Dark Sci-Fi to Joyous Fantasy
Part 10: Showing the Perfect Forever-Love Story

And, as a bonus, here’s a link to Day of the Doctor wallpapers.

  1. I know next to nothing about Doctor Who and so reading several of the articles was enlightening. I decided to reply to #7 at length and we’ll see what comes of that. I submit there that the Devil isn’t bent on enforcing conformity, as if that’s all he can do in comparison to God. Nor is he bent on absorbing us, The Screwtape Letters notwithstanding. Rather, he’s bent on our total and eternal destruction and will use any lever – conformity, nonconformity, denial of or emphasis on the flesh, hierarchy, anarchy, anything at all – to get us there.

  2. Thank you for sharing these posts!
