This book explores the subject of religion and Doctor Who in its broadest possible context, examining portrayals of religion within the show, religious concepts which might be addressed through Doctor Who, and the use of the programme by religious believers. Chapters cover topics such as the religious coding of the Doctor, the relationship between time and theology on the show, whether Doctor Who fandom could ever be considered a legal religion and the show's interaction with Buddhist concepts. The essays are all written in an accessible but academically thorough style, aiming to appeal both to academic readers in the fields of religion, media studies and English, as well as to fans with an interest in religion or in analysing Doctor Who.
