Is Doctor Who a Jew?

Doctor Who, at 50 the longest-running science fiction television show in the world, has some distinctly Jewish traits.

Half a century ago this week, the BBC broadcast the first installment of its epic, cliff-hanging science fiction television series Doctor Who. Hundreds of millions of fans across six continents sat down on Saturday to simultaneously watch the jubilee episode, "The Day of the Doctor," starring the enigmatic Time Lord's 12th incarnation.
