A typical snippet from the last series - the opening line:

"Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one. Marcus Aurelius" - Clara Oswald

leaves,
the wind scatters some on the face of the ground;
like unto them are the children of men.

Iliad 6.146[114]

By his very nature as a Time Lord, surely he is the old Jesus.

The last Christmas Special had a good explanation of Holy Trinity.
Three Time Lords working together , all, unquestionably the same person
but all with different personalities.

They all had sonic screwdrivers. nearly all the early very early pictures of
Jesus show him with a wand.

Dr Who is just a crap TV show character, any resemblance to Jesus is coincidental.

1) His name is not Dr Who
2) He is one of the best TV characters to have ever graced the TV screen

1) I did not know that, the OP said Dr Who, I presumed he was one of the Surrey Who's.

2) Totally subjective. Anyway WHO is one of the best TV characters ever?

Not sure where this is moved to - another dimension?

When I was a child my local priest said to me "Jesus was a time traveller" - I don't think he mocked God or that I am. I think Dr Who is actually verging on religion. Way more then people think

OP you just went full retard. The 'Marcus Aurelius' at the end was not some latin bull****, it was the name of an ancient Roman who said the bloody quote. It's not like the writer made it up or something. Quoting someone else isn't Jesus behaviour, it's the behaviour of a 15-year-old on facebook.

Jesus continually quoted other people...
You have actually read the Gospels?

The Son Of God.... Emperor Augustus at AD 0. He had "Son of God" put on his coins with his head under it - probably the very one Jesus held up in the air.

Of course not, I'm not religious and have little interest in religion. The bible isn't compulsory reading, dude.

The always keep religion pretty low key / related to science, but it's fairly clear the Doctor isn't a Christian. He appears to be an agnostic (in the sense the universe is more weird and wonderful than he can understand), bordering on atheist (believing the Devil in the black hole episode must fit somewhere within the realms of science).

It's not impossible they use parts of the Jesus story, because it's a pretty powerful story (and a lot of those parts are taken from, or shared with, earlier myths). However, I sincerely doubt the show has Christian undertones (if that's what you meant, which it may not be).

If you meant people follow it like a religion, perhaps it is a bit of a cult, but I haven't yet met anyone who believes he exists.

Everything is Just something.

How do you know that the universe itself isn't just a TV show?

I think any similarities between Jesus and The Doctor are just purely coincidence. I honestly hadn't thought about it at all until I saw this thread.

Dr. Who sucks.


It's kiddish and the storylines are more "monster-of-the-week" than sci-fi, equally the rules of the universe seem really inconsistent and just made up on the spot to suit the Doctor getting out of trouble.

When you look at it from a philosophical point of view it isn't that blasphemous. Could Jesus have been a time traveller? Were the angels aliens? That's the big questions people ask. Depends on your faith what you think.

By definition an angel is a subset of alien - so clearly its not blasphemous.

It would be blasphemous if Dr Who did evil.
