  • Abstract: Augustine of Hippo (354–430) is widely recognized historically as being the most influential theologian in Western Christianity. Doctor Who is a vastly popular current British television series in which an alien known as ‘‘the Doctor’’ roams all of time and space yet has a special fondness for the human species and regularly saves the planet. While some of the devoted followers of either of these individuals may be surprised at the thought of profound commonalities between the two, a thoughtful comparison points to shared convictions on the sacred nature of friendship or companionship. Both Augustine and the Doctor reflect on the power of memory and its relationship to the mystery of time. For each of them, memory can open a path to redemptive possibilities.
