The return of Doctor Who to our screens has been one of the most dramatic resurrections in TV history. A huge fan base, a brilliant script editor, a great case and a budget for special effects that the old series could scarcely dream of...all this and more has contributed to the dazzling success of the series that has had repeated generations diving behind that sofa. Anthony Thacker is a dedicated fan and a church minister. In his exploration of the spiritual and moral issues raised by the programme - the old series no less than the new - he gives us both happy memories and a wealth of new insight. For, alongside the Whovian trivia, we are invited to consider such weighty issues as - how we resolve conflict - what it is to be truly human - regeneration and reincarnation - occult phenomena - religion and violence - sexuality and the consequences of our actions. Questions in each chapter make this an ideal volume for discussion groups or personal reflection.
