Living in the Moment?

On this eve of the twelfth Doctor’s advent (one sleep to go) I found myself recalling a scene from The Day of the Doctor. The War Doctor, the Warrior, has decided to end the Time War by triggering The Moment, a weapon of utter destruction that will end not just the Daleks but the Time Lords […]

‘Bigger on the Inside Too…’

Way back in June, 2012 I added my first post to Blue Box Parables, ‘Bigger on the inside…’ It aimed to compare what it means for Christians to be ‘in Christ’, with the experience of the Doctor’s companions when they discover to their surprise and delight that his sentient time  machine, the TARDIS, is, in fact, ‘bigger on the […]

Once upon a time in the West…

‘Anachronistic electricity, Keep Out signs, aggressive stares; has someone been peeking at my Christmas list?’     Ignoring the ‘Keep Out’ sign at the edge of a Town called Mercy (more a suggestion than an actual order; like, Dry Clean Only) the Doctor sets off down Main Street with the Ponds; Three Amigos with a […]

Escape from the Planet of the Dead?

  CARMEN: Something is coming. Riding on the wind, and shining. DOCTOR: What is it? CARMEN: Death. Death is coming.   After stealing an ancient chalice from a London museum, Lady Christina de Souza slickly escapes by jumping on a #200 bus. Co-incidentally, the Doctor, who is tracking a worm-hole, boards just before the bus […]

Two Natures, One Heart

‘I don’t think scare crows knock!’ The episodes ‘Human Nature’ and ‘The Family of Blood’ (3:8, 9) are my favourites. David Tennant won the Constellation Award for Best Male Performance in a 2007 Science Fiction Television Episode for the two-part story and I won’t argue with that. Tempting as it is to retell the entire story […]

‘I lost her…’

This Christmas (2006) episode introduced series three with the appearance of Catherine Tate as Donna Noble.   After surviving Doomsday and the Doctor’s pathetic goodbye to Rose on the shores of Bad Wolf Bay.2 (talk about breaking up by email, text or even tweet; is a hologram for better or worse?) the Runaway Bride was […]

Harriet Jones…a profile in power…

“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely…” though perhaps power only reveals corruption where it already exists. As for absolute power, that’s another question, I think.   If ‘absolute’ refers to power over particular people at a particular time, including the power of life and death, then yes, history reflects that, but if […]
