Every Star, Every Planet

Searching (as I always seem to as Christmas draws near) to see if any new recordings or videos or the Christmas carol “Every Star Shall Sing A Carol” by Sydney Carter have become available, this year I was struck that the keywords of that title brought up as a suggested alternative “Every Star, Every Planet” – theme music from season 5 of the latest Doctor Who series. And it features as an alternative title an “I am” saying: “I Am The Doctor.”

Recently I found myself explaining once again why a religion professor would explore the intersection between religion and science fiction. But the intersections are multiple, easily spotted, and there as far back as anyone cares to trace the genre.
