My Unapologetic Love of Doctor Who

Home/Blog/Abiding Life/My Unapologetic Love of Doctor Who

One day, several years ago, I was browsing Netflix. You know, one of those times where you can spend so much time trying to find something to watch that you don’t have time to watch it when you finally do? Yeah, it was one of those days. I stumbled across a little sci-fi television series that I remembered watching a few times as a kid. I thought, “Why not, let’s give it a try.”

It took five and a half minutes before I was hooked. The Doctor’s first word was, “Run!” He grabbed Rose Tyler by the hand and off they went. I went with them, and I’ve never looked back. After a few episodes, I saw that the stories started connecting. Then, after a couple of seasons, I realized that it was all connected back to the show’s original beginnings in 1963. So, the more I’ve watched, the more I’ve loved it. The show is funny, campy, witty, clever, touching, sad, exciting, silly, relevant, and just plain a blast.

Aside from being fun to watch (and with our whole family), the show is a tremendous vehicle through which to see Christ. He abounds throughout the whole thing! And that is the biggest reason I love this show. It’s just an earthly picture of a heavenly reality.

The above video is a trailer/recap/thingy for the latest season, Season 9. I don’t know which season would be my favorite, but this one is up there. It is ripe with spiritual truths scattered throughout. This season contains themes of brotherhood/friendship, forgiveness, the cross, mercy, love, and redemption, just to name a few. Plus, it has great writing and acting.

So, I chose this video to introduce my love of Doctor Who and its world. It is a world of time and space, past and future, fun and adventure, and joy and heartache, and I love it. It is a world of pictures that reminds me of True Reality Himself, Jesus Christ. And I love Him.
