Who is Doctor Who?
This might be conjecture at best but it makes more sense then anything else. The Doctor is not really a Time Lord, the doctor is the Time Lord. What does that mean? Well simple, The Doctor is God.
It’s quite straight forward actually. The Doctor is a man who travels through the universe saving people. On more than one occasion he has received a prayer. He is revered by many. He is always alone, which is what god must be like. He is the lonely God.
Not to mention when he ceased to exist galaxies start disappearing. One Time Lord cannot have that effect specially if you think about the millions of Time Lords that must have traveled throughout space and time before they were time locked in the war.
timelier,Now the Time Lords. God created man in his image. Or in this case he creates the first race, the Time Lords in his image. Meanwhile as time progressed the Devil is represented by the Daleks and Cyberman, amongst others.
The oldest question in the universe was Doctor Who. Why is it the oldest question? Why does no now know it? Only for one reason, because the name of God in many mythologies is sacred and has power. Just the simple recitation of the name has power.
The Doctor plays nice but when he is angry he makes the best of them shiver. How can one man have that effect. Granted that not all must know him as God. But the legends must have made him closer to God in most planets.
He is feared, he is loved, he creates and destroys. He is God. Perhaps that’s Doctor Who’s name: God.
