1) The Doctor and Clara have the following exchange:
Clara: What now? I betrayed you.
Doctor: Yes. You betrayed my trust, betrayed our friendship, betrayed everything I stand for.
Clara: Aren't we done. Why haven't you thrown me out?
Doctor: Do you think that I care for you so little that your complete betrayal would change that?
Wow. What a friend. What a picture of the ideal of love in a show that rabidly affirms every humanistic and naturalistic philosophy. I seem to constantly be screwing up my life and my friendships. I'd like to say it's primarily because I'm thoughtless, but real honesty traces thoughtlessness to a root of pride and selfishness. I absolutely depend on people to forgive me, and I live in fear of screwing up so badly that it's simply not possible.
But to have a friend like that. I'd like to think I have one or two friends that love me like that, whose love I would not be afraid to test that way, though I *think* I would never intentionally do so. In no way is the Doctor a form of parable or representation of Christ, but I do think this is emblematic of the desire for a relationship with Himself that God has placed in the heart of man.
2) The second exchange takes place in the "nethersphere".... it's a kind of afterlife.
The host is talking to (REDACTED).
Host: Imagine if babies could talk to each other in the womb. They would think that life is only 9 months long, and after the cord is broken... nothing. This isn't really an afterlife. It's just more life than you were expecting.
Again, wow. God has placed eternity in the heart of man. To affirm a strictly naturalistic philosophy is constant exercise. Doctor Who has never indulged in pseudo-spirituality. Everything is naturalistic, and the Doctor is adamant upon this point. But this one conversation reveals so much about how we are created and how we perceive the world. In a very real sense this is what we believe as Christians. After life comes more life.
And then of course SPOILER goes and SPOILERS the SPOILER so that SPOILER can SPOILER the SPOILER. But you knew that already, right?
