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 […]

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, playing a game, going for a walk on the beach. He would give […]

A town called Mercy

“I like to think of Keep out signs as suggestions rather than actual orders – like ‘Dry Clean only.’” So begins the Doctor’s adventure in the Town called Mercy (Series 7/3).  This episode has more ‘Western’ symbols and Biblical references than you could poke a stick at. In this town, the Doctor finds many anachronisms […]

What is that ‘something special’ about Doctor Who?

Though it whizzed past me pretty quickly on Facebook, I found a really profound comment/question in an interview with David Tennant the other day. There he discusses the reasons for Doctor Who‘s popularity.  He says the show is ubiquitous (nice word) and “probably means more to people than it necessarily should. . . It touches people’s […]
