Review:
What a fantastic book for anyone who has any Whovian tendencies! Thoroughly enjoyable and intelligent with that edge of quirk and humour, believe it or not, that makes Doctor Who so enjoyable - and all this in a book written by academics - yes geeks are cool along with Fezzs and this book dealing with faith from a wide range of perspectives really helps highlight that.

Sociologists, theologians, philosophers and more come together to give bitesize chapters that deal with the underlying issues of faith that can be found in episodes and ideas found within the Doctor Who series and meta-narratives. There are some excellent and interesting studies here, and not just for Doctor Who fans but for any who are interested in how faith finds its reflection in the modern media zeitgeist.
