Re: The Doctor Who primer

I think a theme that draws many viewers is the Doctor's passion...passion for life and preserving life, for doing what's right, fighting against those who seek power at the expense of others' rights. It's a character trait that resonates across cultures and backgrounds...especially in younger people, whose concepts of right and wrong may not have as many shades of grey as someone older. Although the show does introduce those grey areas from time to time, which makes it more compelling. And though we see those occasional flashes of arrogance in the Doctor, we know his heart is in the right place.
