Biblical Studies Carnival 69 at Remnant of Giants

As a Doctor Who fan, I was tempted to call this “Carnival of Giants” as a mash-up of two episode titles, “Carnival of Monsters” and “Planet of the Giants.” But even though I didn’t, there is still a giant carnival over at Deane Galbraith’s blog Remnant of Giants. There are some posts from here and [Read More...]

Doctor Who: The Romans

The episode of Doctor Who “The Romans” from the William Hartnell era only intersects tangentially with religion, but it does so in interesting ways. The Doctor and his companions end up in Rome in the time of Nero, and the Doctor actually gets mistaken for a lyre player who has been invited to Nero’s palace. [Read More...]

Doctor Who: The Visitation

As I continue my Doctor Who re-watch, I suspect that I am going to end up with two streams of it – not inappropriate for a time-travel series in which the Doctor’s various regenerations intersect, I dare say! As I continue working through from the beginning, because there are so many lost episodes, I will [Read More...]

Doctor Who and the Pepper-Spraying Daleks (Occupy Skaro)

Doctor Who: Snakedance and the Triple Temptation of the Mara

The Doctor Who episode “Snakedance” from the Peter Davison era is the sequel to the earlier episode Kinda, featuring the same enemy, the Mara, an evil presence which can hide within a mind and take control of it, and from there (if it can find the power to do so) emerge into physical form as [Read More...]

Happy Birthday to Who

On this day, November 23rd, back in 1963, the first episode of Doctor Who aired. Happy 48th birthday, Doctor Who! That was, of course, also the day after president John F. Kennedy was assassinated. I wonder how and whether the convergence of the two affected the memories of anyone who saw the show when it [Read More...]

Doctor Who: The Daemons (Conflicting Signals about Science and the Supernatural)

The session on religion and science fiction at AAR went well, and I will blog about that separately. But let me write my post now on one of the episodes I focused particular attention on in my own presentation on religion in Doctor Who: “The Daemons” from the Jon Pertwee era. Two bits of dialogue [Read More...]

Bibliobloggers’ Reception and More #AARSBL #SBLAAR

The bibliobloggers’ get-together last night was delightful. It was great to meet some people for the first time, including Brian LePort, whom I did not recognize until he covered the lower part of his face (see the photo on his blog Near Emmaus to see why). Chris Brady took some photos and posted them on [Read More...]
