The Salvation of Doctor Who

This bible study series from Abingdon Press explores similar themes and parallels to the ones we have been discussing here. Looks great!

The temptation of Mr Smith

“Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. 9 “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.” (Matthew 4) In “School Reunion” (series 2/3) Tennant’s Doctor Who certainly meets a devil of a temptation!

50 years celebrating the Rescuer

Now that the dust has settled on the excitement of the Day of the Doctor anniversary celebration, it’s time to ponder how this new epic plot twist affects the parable we have noted so far…..if indeed at all. In the anniversary special the three Doctors managed not only to save the humans from shape shifting […]

Spreading the message of the Man who saves

At the end of series 3, we learn many important facts about the Doctor as he faces the maniacal Master and tackles his desire to rule the world. One thing we learn is that the Doctor chose his own name. Unlike the Master, who is bent only on dominating others (and chose a most appropriate […]

There seem to be a multitude of official and unofficial trailers for the upcoming specials. This one seems BBC made, and has some great still 3D images! Enjoy.

The Peter Capaldi era begins . . .

Though I have no “bluebox parable” to share today I thought I’d stop in to show you an amazing potential opening sequence for the Peter Capaldi era of Doctor Who. I’m pretty sure it is not a BBC certified production – just something a clever fan has whipped up (or slaved over for hours or […]

Give me a day like this one!

Some of the best Christopher Eccelston moments occur in this double episode from series 1, set in London’s World War 2 Blitz (The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances, series 1/9 &1/10). Rose Tyler: Look at you, beaming away like you’re Father Christmas! The Doctor: Who says I’m not?. . . red-bicycle-when-you-were-twelve? Rose Tyler: What? But the […]

The power of a name

The Shakespeare Code (3/2) is Martha’s first time-travelling adventure with the Doctor. She’s already tried space travel, not by choice but because the hospital she worked in was plucked from earth and dumped on the moon. (You see, the Judoon were seeking justice against a blood sucking alien disguised as an old woman. A classic […]

Hymn to the god of Akhaten

While we are all waiting for that man in the blue box to return for his 50th anniversary, and his impending regeneration, perhaps we can spend some time contemplating an episode where the god-theme is very prominent. I’m borrowing an interesting commentary from another blog which explores the religious themes developed in The Rings of […]
