Book Lecture: "The Humanism of Doctor Who"

I have just been made aware of a VERY intriguing lecture happening at the Rancho Bernardo Library in July. The Humanist Fellowship of San Diego is sponsoring a lecture by Professor David Layton. He wrote a book entitled "The Humanism of Doctor Who: A Critical Study in Science Fiction and Philosophy". How totally cool is that?

Lecture starts at 1:30pm at the San Diego Public Library branch in Rancho Bernardo. For more details, you can check out the Humanist Fellowships meetup event here:

    I want to thank all the Whovians who showed up for this talk. It was very interesting to hear the views of the author and the role that Humanism and religion play in the story telling of Doctor Who. If anyone is interested in hearing this lecture again, I'd be happy to contact Professor Layton and see if he could do it for our group somewhere closer to central San Diego. Please email me if you are interested in hearing this talk again. I would probably need at least 15-20 people to attend before I contact him.

    I am actually going to try to make this, just gotta find out when the Doctor Who panel is and then attempt to drive like a mad man to RB. Anyone who will be at Con that Sunday down to carpool it?

    The lecture sounds so interesting. I'll actually be at Comic Con, but I hope that something like this comes up again soon.

    Wow! Folks might note: there's a book entitled "The Philosophy of Doctor Who" that is difficult but well worth the effort: you might consider it as preparation for this Meetup.
