Visiting the Aztecs with the Doctor and Other Scholars

Rudy Busto wrote a piece for the Religious Studies Project, comparing what Western authors have often had to say about the Aztecs, with the treatment of them on Doctor Who in the classic episode “The Aztecs.” See my previous blog post about the episode, and also my recent article in Implicit Religion comparing Doctor Who and Star [Read More…]

Jeff Carter offered some Whovian versions of Christmas carol titles. I didn’t think I could do better, so I’ll just link to his list.
