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 […]

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

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 […]

‘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 […]

My times are in your hands…

‘There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission.…’ I include this here for a couple of reasons. First, purely for nostalgia’s sake (before the Doctor appeared in Australia in 1965 we kids found our chills in The Twilight Zone as well as in The […]

We are all ghosts to you!

In the recent episode “Hide” (Series 7/9) the Doctor and Clara investigate a haunted house, joining a psychic and a professor who are seeking the mysterious ghost of the Witch of the Well. Midway through the episode we see Clara most upset as she suddenly realises the darker side of time travel. She sees who […]
