Abstract

As the opening quotation indicates, many Doctor Who fans care about improving lives and curing social ills. Meisner (2011) asserts that the Doctor is “an activist” who is “an example to concerned citizens everywhere” (p. 7). While scholars differ in their interpretations of the show's texts, most agree that many episodes contain overt anti-totalitarian storylines, progressive social messages, and educative political parallels.
