Doctor Who and Textual Criticism

I like to make it a personal challenge to find as many ways of relating Doctor Who and the academic study of Christian Origins as possible (e.g. Unreliability of Eye-witnesses of Doctor Who) so it is gratifying to see Chuck Grantham over on A 'Goula Blogger doing the same thing, relating Copies of copies of copies . . . . of Biblical manuscripts to copies of copies of copies of old VHS videos of Doctor Who among American fans in the 1980s.

Hey, Mark!

Thanks for the mention on the Weblog!

I suppose if I was seriously making a point about copies of copies of.... and textual criticism,I might have said you don't need a perfect copy to get the plot. But Mark D. Roberts might sue me for reworking his "road map" argument, then.

Thanks for the continued work on the Weblog, webroll (where I constantly go for my bible news) and the NT Pods (I keep them in the car to listen to).
