The Magic of Doctor Who is Our Magic Too

50th Doctor Who Celebrations Today !!

I’m not the only one totally stoked about tonight’s 50th episode, am I?
LoL, far from it 🙂


Why We Love Doctor Who:

 The Doctor’s Magic!

No really, he is!
OK, sorry, not everybody’s into Doctor Who, I’ll grant you. But an awful lot of us are. Maybe that’s because he is not so unlike us? He’s flawed and looking for answers same as we are.
There is something quite magical about the Doctor, what he stands for, and his inimitable style, which is quite uplifting.

˚˙¨*•.¸¸.☆   “Angels can fly because they take themselves lightly.”
 G.K. Chesterton


Yayy, and for me the Doctor is the sci-fi version of a Buddhist mendicant; wandering the Universe, giving a lift to those he can.

Doctor's note


As for us, we have limited choice what experiences our will ripen for us next. But we can help others, whilst creating the life we want to live.

 Travelling where we want to go 

What Sign?

Rory: “AH, the sign does say ‘Keep Out’.”
Doctor: “I see ‘keep out’ signs as suggestions, rather than actual orders. Like ‘dry clean only‘”.

The Doctor’s capricious and unpredictable, and bends the rules when needed.
He’s not anarchic, that wouldn’t particularly be of benefit to others. But the Doctor does think for himself, and uses his intuition and inner wisdom to guide him.

This way of playing means the Doctor normally wins the games he finds himself in. He knows and believes in himself, and the magic of things, allowing them to flow as one.
Even when he loses, the Doctor’s magic sparkles and sparks with an understanding that the Universe is a big place, where just about everything is possible.

It’s like with us. The path you’re on might not have turned out to be going in the direction you were planning; but stopping to admire the view gives you chance to evaluate it, use it,
or change it.

We always have choice.”


And hey, doesn’t the Doctor use the full spectrum of choice?
And then create some options you hadn’t even thought of?!

I guess part of the Doctor’s magic is that he knows that the rules of this Universe are not as fixed as we normally believe, and can be weaved into different patterns.
We can work with our thought processes in order to construct the life we wish to live. We can always be weaving patterns that serve our life’s journey.

Space and time
Time and space
Locked in an intricate dance across the Cosmos
And if you know the tune
Anything is possible.

The Doctor to Prof Brian Cox

Coxy and the Doctor

But the essential thing about the Doctor is that whichever actor plays him, there is always an unbeatable strength to his character.
He’s the sort of decent, honourable guy you’d be happy see in a dark alley at night.
(Although he’s kinda’ humble, and likes to keep a low profile. So you’re more likely to just see the glow of that sonic screwdriver of his.)

He’s traveller who’s moral compass points due right; and he always tries to make the right thing happen, for all concerned. Often with unwavering determination.

Kind of inspiring, isn’t it?

Well, at least we can have the wish.
And that’s where things start…

    There’s even a firework display going on outside.
    Coincidence though, surely…

    Good piece of writing -love your depiction of him, if we could only be like that and not waver and not be fickle when the moment suits.
    Thought the programme was good and interesting to see the previous Drs.

      Oh, I don’t know. The Doctor can be pretty fickle at times. ‘Cocktails on the moon’? I ask you.
      The programme was a bit good though, wasn’t it 🙂 And you’re right, we can be more focussed in our approach to life. Much better than just meandering through it.

    See, see?! The Doctor changes where he dies. He doesn’t die in a battle at Trenzalore. He retires and becomes ‘the great curator’ in London! Much more peaceful. Talk about weaving your future 😉
    Nothing compared to what we can achieve, mind.

    The Doctor gives us the freedom to have adventures , to face creepy beings from other planets. It gives us speed, time-travel, the opportunity to be heroes/heroines.Not to mention the Tardis is the greatest of toy vehicles. Hugs, Barbara

      Oh my dear! That made me laugh. Facing creepy beings from other planets indeed. And he does. He does give us the opportunity to be heroes/heroines.
      I think that’s why I’ve loved him from when I was a very small being. Especially now. After each episode I feel inspired to be a better person.
      Thank you for saying it.



We'd love to hear from you...
