Because People in power are Stupid: Because suspension of disbelief?
Barfmaker: Perhaps its simply because it doesn't assert itself as being true.No, it couldn't possibly be that.
cman: When did the Guardian start reprinting content from The Onion Telegraph?
pagansexgod: Because one is science fiction and the other is dr who
barefoot in the head: < PointAll y'all >What he is saying is that the verity of the story details do not matter in either case, and he is right. They point to and inspire something deeper and larger, and there they are similar.
nickdaisy: Doctor Who is for nerds. True, die-hard, never got laid, sit at home alone on prom night nerds. It's incredibly boring, has terrible special effects, painful dialogue, and a storyline more convoluted than a Mexican telenovella. I'd rather rather watch 3-2-1 Contact! backwards than watch Doctor Who.Who's with me?

wildcardjack: Because The Doctor is presented as a semi-competent technician with a universe generator, not an omnipotent overlord interested in our daily affairs.
Barfmaker: In the comments of TFA people are having an interesting, thoughtful, and reasoned discussion...I honestly don't think I have ever seen that before.
xanadian: pagansexgod: Because one is science fiction and the other is dr whoI mentioned this before: if you read in the last chapter of John, even Mary doesn't recognize Jesus right away after his resurrection. It's because he didn't resurrect. He regenerated.Next time I'm in church and they tell us to rise to sing hymn #314159, I'll start whistling the theme to Doctor Who.Also: this article was from 1 week ago. Just sayin'...
LarryDan43: I thought Lord of The Rings was about as historically accurate as the bible.
Xcott: It's actually a good question, for Sci-Fi rather than theological reasons.Here in the US, Dr. Who has always had a devoted following that regarded the show as an intensely deep and cerebral exercise, even though the show often has a plot and dialog on par with the average G.I. Joe cartoon. It's worth asking why Dr. Who seems to get a pass among among its adherents for rinky-dink writing, and why it is often so elevated above other shows in the same category.
