Is Doctor Who a Religion? | Idea Channel

Not long ago I asked you if you believe in the Doctor, as a Doctor Who religion. A few minutes ago I found this video with the same subject.

I don’t have to tell you about how long this show is running (the next year will be the 50th anniversary) and the huge fandom surrounding Doctor Who series. The fans are called Whovians.

And while it might not seem like, Whovianism, might just be RELIGION!!!!! Whovians, like other passionate fan cultures, create art & fan fiction and engage in a strong remix and cosplay culture. But it’s more than that. Dr. Who provides a philosophy; a way of understanding the universe. Fans embrace this in ways that are similar to most world religions: a positive influence that changes their approach to daily life. Also, the Tardis makes a pretty great shrine!
