Dawkins Doesn’t Like Who

Curious. Theologist and philosopher – and husband of Second Romana actress Lalla Ward – Richard Dawkins has stated that he isn’t keen on the current incarnation of Doctor Who, despite appearing in the most recent story.

Speaking to the Radio Times, Dawkins – who once counted the late Douglas Adams among his friends – revealed:

"I regard the definitive Doctor Who as the one when Lalla was there. I don’t have any truck with this modern version."

Conversely, the author made a cameo appearance as himself in The Stolen Earth.

This is a man who judges peoples belief in gods – he ponces onto a TV show then denounces it.

Kasterborous is unimpressed. Not only that but his "definitive" Doctor Who appears to be the "smug student era", when Tom went OTT and Douglas Adams was script editor.

Happy days?

Christian Cawley


A long-term Doctor Who fan, Christian grew up watching the show and has early memories of the Graham Williams era. His favourite stories are Inferno, The Seeds of Doom and Human Nature (although The Empty Child, Blink and Utopia all come close). When he’s not bossing around the news team, Christian is a freelance writer specialising in mobile technology and domestic computing, and enjoys classic rock, cooking and spending time in the countryside with his wife and young children. You can find him on Twitter, Facebook and Google+.
