Whovian Pentecost

Now there were devout Jews from every nation under heaven living in Jerusalem. And at this sound the crowd gathered and was bewildered, because each one heard them speaking in the native language of each. Amazed and astonished, they asked, “Are not all these who are speaking Galileans? And how is it that we hear [Read More...]

Doctor Who Nativity

I came across this picture on Reddit. I hope that someone is keeping their eyes on that angel! Can you envisage the story? Baby Jesus attacked by a Dalek and a Weeping Angel, and the Doctor arrives to save the day? What details would you fill in?   [Read more...]

Ken Ham, Whovian

I learned previously that Ken Ham is a Doctor Who fan. But a photo in a recent article on RawStory made it clear that he is a die-hard Whovian. I find it distressing enough that he is associated with my faith tradition as a Christian. But that he is a Whovian as well seemed too much [Read More...]

Saul of TARDIS

Someone recently heard me make reference to “Saul of Tarsus” and they thought I said “Saul of TARDIS.” I supposed talking so often about the New Testament and also Doctor Who, the two are bound to blur together. I’d love to see an image made that brings Paul the apostle and the TARDIS together under [Read More...]

Fear Makes Companions of Us All

For the Jewish New Year, I thought it would be appropriate to finally share a couple of articles related to Doctor Who and Judaism that came to my attention over the past week. First, Rabbi Pamela Gottfried wrote a piece for the site My Jewish Learning, with the title “Taking the TARDIS to God.” Although not a Whovian herself, [Read More...]

Tone And Resonant Depth In Sound

One of the things we accomplished while in Romania was a visit to Reghin, the violin-making capitol of the country. We ended up buying my son a lovely handmade instrument from Simon József, whose family are into their fifth generation as luthiers (his grandfather was the first, and his grandson now helps with the work). Since [Read More...]

The Doctor’s Ark

Jerry Coyne shared the picture below, showing how invoking a certain fictional technology from a show I enjoy could solve a very serious problem that confronts young-earth creationism: how could all those animals fit on the ark? Fans of Doctor Who will know that space arks have featured more than once on the show, from [Read More...]

Time and Relative Dimensions in Faith – Special 50th Anniversary Price!

I spoke recently with Marc Allan, Butler University’s associate director of public relations, about the Doctor Who 50th anniversary and the new book, Time and Relative Dimensions in Faith: Religion and Doctor Who. He wrote a piece on the subject, “Professor McGrath Offers a Scholarly Take On ‘Religion and Doctor Who’”, and so I thought [Read More...]
