  • Abstract: The concept of the leading character from Doctor Who, the Doctor, as the perennial Everyman is directly taken from the medieval play, uplifting and educating viewers whilst making religious morality lessons into entertainment. This article claims that the Doctor, focusing o his eleventh incarnation portrayed by actor Matt Smith, is Everyman and yet no man. He is a Time Lord on a human quest for an ecstatic religious experience. Yet by his journey alone, the Doctor glimpses a hope that ultimately eludes him. This modern television program, through iconic imagery and performance, creates the world of the Doctor whilst teaching a Christian way of living without ever using the term Christ.
