• What my friend asked: What's Doctor Who about?
  • What I said: It's about an alien named "The Doctor" who travels though time in a spaceship that looks like a police telephone box, who saves people and other aliens with the help of his companions and a tool called a "sonic screwdriver."
  • What I meant: IT'S ABOUT FRIENDSHIP AND BRAVERY AND LOVE AND LOSS, AND LIFE AND DEATH AND FORGIVENESS AND GUILT, AND BEING HUMAN AND BEING LESS THAN HUMAN AND SOMETIMES A BIT MORE THAN HUMAN, SKILL AND INTELLECT AND SOMETIMES A LITTLE BIT OF LUCK, FINDING THE EXTRAORDINARY IN THE SEEMINGLY ORDINARY, LOOKING UP AT THE NIGHT SKY AND REALIZING YOU'RE PART OF AN IMPOSSIBLY BEAUTIFUL AND MYSTERIOUS UNIVERSE AND THAT YOU DON'T KNOW ALL THE ANSWERS NO MATTER HOW CLEVER YOU ARE. IT'S ABOUT LOOKING INSIDE YOURSELF AND REALIZING YOU'RE FAR GREATER THAN THE EXTERNAL CONDITIONS OF YOUR LIFE: YOU'RE NOT A SHOPGIRL, YOU'RE NOT A SUCCESFUL MEDICAL DOCTOR, YOU'RE NOT A TEMP, YOU'RE NOT A LITTLE GIRL WHO NEEDS TO GROW UP OR A BOY THAT THINKS THE LOVE OF HIS LIFE COULD HAVE DONE BETTER. YOU'RE THE MOST IMPORTANT PERSON IN CREATION AND AT THE SAME TIME YOU'RE THE MOST INSIGNIFICANT THING IN THE WORLD, AND HAVING THE ABILITY TO CHOOSE BETWEEN THE TWO AT ANY GIVEN TIME IS FANTASTIC. IT'S ABOUT EMBRACING YOUR INNER DARKNESS SO THAT YOU CAN STAND IN THE LIGHT OF YOUR TRUTH. IT'S ABOUT HAVING THE GUTS TO DO WHAT'S RIGHT EVEN WHEN EVERYONE ELSE JUST RUNS AWAY.
