Dr. Who

27 04 2013

I’ve been watching Doctor Who for a little while now.  I started with the ninth doctor and am working my way through to current episodes, and I’ve been having a lot of fun. In general, I enjoy finding parallels and themes in the things I’m watching, even when they don’t always make total sense.  So I’ve come up with a few for the good Doctor. River Song and her whole situation could be a metaphor for coping with Alzheimers. It’s really very sad.  And the Silence… I’m thinking the struggle to shake off the fear generated by the Cold War. I’m having fun.
