Doctor Who and Reception History

Alas, Doctor Who has finished (great last two minutes by the way) but isn't it just waiting for a reception historian to deal with all that biblical and religious imagery (hell, Genesis Ark, devil, prophecy, messiah etc.) used throughout?

That series begins here this week - but the bigger alas is that it isn't free to air for all. Hell ... all that religious imagery but I can't pick up the channel. Bother.

Sound like an excellent idea, James, but alas I am currently playing with Johnny Cash and a sound called The Man Comes Around for the Revelation and Reception conference we are holding here in Bristol at the beginning of September. This is proving a very enjoyable way to spend my summer and so far has got me looking at everything from Country hymns through to the recent re-make of the Dawn of the Dead which uses the song as an apocalyptic intro. Dr Who would be lots of fun, but who'd publish it, I wonder. Great to see you in Edinburgh. Shame I was only dipping in, but Berlinerblau on Politics was especially good as I am sure you would agree.

Well John, Johnny Cash is hardly a poor second! Johnny Cash has for a long time had a firm place in my heart so to see him presented in NT studies will unquestionably be something to look forward to. And good to see you too. I was also just hanging around more than anything. The Berlinerblau paper was very good, not to mention his public speaking.

Doctor Who could be done in relation to sci-fi-type books and the reception of the Bible perhaps. There were notable overlaps with Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials in some of the Doctor Who episodes too. And there must be countless sci-fi-type books with biblical imagery and influence.

This is a full-service, top notch venue with amazing food and liquor, without the cookie cutter atmosphere of a traditional wedding venue.
