Timelords: Wow!

The Church of England considers Doctor Who as a teaching aid and, hopefully, a means to boost its popularity (hat tip to a Celtic Warrior Queen). I await word on the theological ramifications of hiding behind the sofa.

A conference of Church of England vicars watched a handful of episodes from the sci-fi series to study its religious parallels, particularly its themes of evil, resurrection and redemption. Similarities between the Doctor and Christ, as well as whether the evil Daleks are capable of changing, were also examined.

Yes, the Daleks. Because examples of metaphysical evil are in such short supply in today's England. A good idea nonetheless.

A friend of mine has a brilliant button that exclaims: I found Jesus, He was behind the sofa.

Don't stop at Ghola Churchill. Please bring along Sir Basil Henry Liddell Hart, Percey Hobart, FM William Slim and Lord Mountbatten to get done what needs doing.

Oh and we could use 3 or 4 Pattons while we're at it.

Can't the just use, oh I don't know, the Bible?

Nah. Too much God-stuff in it.
