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! […]

Consumed by the WiFi

Doctor: There’s something in the WiFi . . . this whole world is swimming in WiFi . . . we’re living in a WiFi soup! Suppose something got inside it, suppose there was something living in the WiFi, harvesting human minds, extracting. . . imagine that! Human souls trapped like flies in the world wide […]

‘…when a good man goes to war…’

DOCTOR: And, when people come to you, and ask if trying to get to me through the people I love… is in any way a good idea…. Oh, look! I’m angry. That’s new; I’m really not sure what’s going to happen now. MADAME KOVARIAN: The anger of a good man is not a problem. Good […]

Stormageddon D.L.A… aka Alfie Owens

What’s on your ‘Bucket List’? That is, given that you know you are soon to die, what will you do with your remaining time? In 6:12, ‘Closing Time’, the Doctor, travelling alone on a ‘farewell tour’, decides to attempt a social call on old friends, Craig and Sophie Owens. He met them in 5:11, becoming […]

The Vampires of Venice

Sooner or later I guess we’ll see the Doctor confront most of our demons. I can’t wait for the dinosaurs in series 7 (and I have always thought Rory would make a fine zombie). Really, I like that there is someone out there who can deal with the worst we can imagine and better still […]

Victory of the Daleks?

‘Victory of the Daleks’ is a generous description of what happens to the Doctor’s direst enemies in Series Five, Episode 3. Perhaps ‘Escape of the Daleks’ would be more accurate as it is only when the Doctor chooses to save planet earth (again) that the new, improved Daleks make their getaway. This was a big […]

Monsters in the cupboard…

In Series 6, Episode 9, ‘Night Terrors’, the Doctor, Amy and Rory answer a cry for help from eight year old George who is facing another night alone in his room with a cupboard full of monsters. Rory was disappointed when the TARDIS door opened on a council estate in 21st Century London. He says […]

Why Rose follows the Doctor

Rose: “But it’s not! It’s now! That fight is happening right now, and he’s fighting for us! For the whole planet, and I’m just sitting here eating chips! … But what do I do every day, mum? What do I do? Get up – catch the bus – go to work – come back home […]

Bigger on the inside…

I seem to remember that the Doctor pinched his TARDIS in doubtful circumstances before setting out to explore the universe. Now, the last of the Time Lords travels through time and space in this sentient, telepathic time machine; his Big Blue Box. Can we find parables in his story helpful to our understanding of the […]
