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 […]

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 […]

New Anniversary trailer

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 […]

‘No eye has seen…no mind has conceived…’

Doctor Who first appeared at 17:16:20 GMT on 23 November 1963, stepping, not quite fully formed, from the minds of his creators, Sydney Newman, Donald Wilson and Cecil Webber, assisted by Anthony Coburn, David Whitaker and Verity Lambert. Fifty years on, the Doctor’s personal pantheon has grown beyond eighty (writers credited in episodes for television). […]

Wilfred at the heart of coincidence: The end of time!

I had a grandad called Willfred. He was lots of silly fun. He let you mess up his hair, and punch him in the stomach, and laugh at his silly sayings and doings. But he would also give you lots of attention. There were endless games and unhurried walks on the beach. He would give […]

An Ode to the Universe

This comes from Doctor Who at the Proms 2009. Lovely! Everyone has music inside of them, and a soul, according to the Doctor. How’s yours going?

The name of the Doctor – such a promise!

Clara: Who’s that? Doctor: That’s me Clara: But I never saw that one… Doctor: I said he was me. I didn’t say he was the Doctor… The name I chose is the Doctor. The name you choose, is like a promise you make… He is my secret. John Hurt: What I did, I did without […]
