Atheism and Doctor Who
Digital Spy have reported on the future appearance of Richard Dawkins in Doctor Who
Speaking to The Independent recently, Davies revealed:
“People were falling at his feet,” said Davies. “We’ve had Kylie Minogue on that set, but it was Dawkins people were worshipping. He has brought atheism proudly out of the closet!”
“He was as mad and as barking as you’d want him to be.”
Dawkins is the husband of former Doctor Who star Lalla Ward and wrote The Selfish Gene and The God Delusion.
Because all of this just “happened”, didn’t it? Frankly, it is dangerous of Davies to make too much of this – Doctor Who has never been about anyones real world religious beliefs, and shouldn’t be now.
I wonder if Mr Dawkins and Ms Ward married on consecrated ground…
