It is interesting though that he did kill all the time lords and most of the darleks and continues to do so...  genocide!  But yes, he does also seem to understand the causal web and realised that darleks are fully caused to kill without fear or compassion.  I'm sure your book covers it all! :)

Alice - Thanks for the link. I am glad to see that it is available in the UK. To answer your question, I have some material about the Doctor as killer, but mostly related to the issue nonviolence. That is, the Doctor is almost never (a very few exceptions mostly because the makers at the time were not fully aware of the series) a willful killer. In the Davies era, there is a repeated pattern involving the Doctor's giving the villain a choice - desist or take the consequences. When the Doctor kills, it is almost always defensive, either defending him or someone else. This creates a different moral environment than it would be if the Doctor simply went about Rambo-style killing anyone he didn't like.

love it - does it include all the references to the dr being a mass killer and his personal feelings about that???  :)

I just want to let you Doctor Who fans know that my book "The Humanism of Doctor Who: A Critical Study
in Science Fiction and Philosophy" will be published by McFarland in Spring 2012. You can find the listing by going to http://www.mcfarlandpub.com/catalogs.html and clicking on "New Titles for Spring 2012." The book is on page 17 of the Spring catalog.

so I made this trio a while back. I'm using the very last one right now--it's just dyed with swirls of blue and it has some stickers on it--an owl, Scifi Squad, and The Sword in the Stone stickers from getglue.

I tend to make journals like this to signify bits of my life--and I guess it's fitting, that I'm an atheist now, that this is the "Doctor Who" Era. My previous journals were Rorshach-inspired.

Well, now we know why Karen Gillan was found naked and crying in New York.  The Doctor did it, of course.
