Top Eleven Doctor Who Quotes That Sound Like Something Jesus Would Say!

Doctor who1

Beyond the Pale readers should be made aware of the fact that that I am in BIG Doctor Who fan.  You know, the T.V. show about a 900 year old alien who travels through space and time in a phone box with a “sonic” screwdriver and friends.

Yep, that show

In fact it’s been fun for Gabriel (my son) and I to watch my wife Tammy’s transition from ambivalence bordering on contempt to full blown fan of The Doctor as well.  The transition occurred over 5 stages that went something like this:

Stage 1: “No way are we watching Doctor Who tonight!”

Stage 2: “If you guys want to watch Doctor Who, I can do something else.”

Stage 3: “I suppose if there is nothing else on, we can watch Doctor Who.”

Stage 4: “Hey, what if we watch Doctor Who tonight.”

Stage 5: “I LOVE Doctor Who!  Don’t you dare watch any episodes while I’m gone!”

Yep, she has been assimilated! 🙂

There are a lot of things I like about the Doctor Who.  The stories, the characters, the witty dialogue and fantastic locations.  But what I really enjoy is the “Christ” like arch type The Doctor represents.  I’m always drawn to “Christ” figures in stories. (Superman, Aslan etc.)

So, in honor of the upcoming regeneration (resurrection?) of The Doctor I thought I would list my Top Eleven Doctor Who quotes that Sound Like Something Jesus Would Say!

Drum roll please…

11. The Doctor: You betrayed me.  You betrayed my trust, you betrayed our friendship, you betrayed everything I ever stood for. (Angry) You let me down!

Clara: Then why are you helping me?

The Doctor: (In disbelief) Why?  (Walks toward Clara) Do you think I care for you so little that betraying me would make a difference?


10.  “Big flashy things have my name written all over them. Well… not yet, give me time and a crayon.” The Doctor


9.  Jackson Lake: Please Doctor…Help Me?

The Doctor: Ah, two words I never refuse.


8. “Rose…before I go, I just want to tell you: you were fantastic.  Absolutely fantastic.  And do you know what? (pause)  So was I!” The 9th Doctor’s final words before regenerating into the 10th Doctor


7. “My experience is that there is, surprisingly, always hope!” – The Doctor


6. “Good men don’t need rules.” – The Doctor


5. “Picture the biggest ship you’ve ever seen.  Are you picturing it? (yes) Good, now forget it because this ship is infinite.” – The Doctor explaining the dimensions of his ship the T.A.R.D.I.S


4. The Doctor: Didn’t anyone ever tell you? There’s one thing you never put in a trap if you’re smart. If you value your continued existence, if you have any plans about seeing tomorrow, there’s one thing you never, ever put in a trap.

Angel Bob: And what would that be, sir?

The Doctor: Me.  – (I always thought this is something Jesus could have said on the cross)


3. “People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but *actually* from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint – it’s more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly… time-y wimey… stuff.”– The Doctor explaining “time”



2.   Rose: Look at you, beaming away like you’re Father Christmas!

     The Doctor: Who says I’m not, red-bicycle-when-you-were-twelve?

     Rose: [shocked] What?

     The Doctor: And everybody lives, Rose! Everybody lives! I need    more days like this! Go on, ask me anything; I’m on fire!

    Fabulous, Steve. Hilarious. The quotes are wonderful and the part about Tammy is pricless!
    I’ll start watching today.

  • Steve

    Glad you enjoyed it Connie. If you are going to start watching the show, start with the renewed series that began with Christopher Eccleston playing the Doctor (2005) Then you have seven seasons to watch to catch up

  • Adrian

    Not a quote as such, but the final scene of Season 2 of David Tennant’s Doctor (the one where he holds the dying ‘Master’ in his arms) is an extraordinarily powerful picture of the anguish that God must feel over those who, even though laid bare before Him, still choose death over life.

    • Steve

      Yes, incredible scene Adrian and what I believe is the more likely “hell” scenario.
