Doctor Who?

I missed most of the episodes of the series that finished yesterday but thankfully BBC Three showed them all in the past week. I really enjoyed David Tennant's portrayal of the Doctor and thought the demise of Rose was done very well. The special effects have been fantastic and the plots have been ingenious at times.

There are only two objections: first, my understanding is that Russell Davies is antagonistic towards religion - and this has shown in this series especially. There are good morals, it's positive, etc - but there's very little space for the existence of a loving creator God: very modern in the sense that "we've worked it all out, science will answer everything eventually"

Secondly - the body count. How many thousands or millions of people have died (or implied to have died) in this series?

What do you think?
