Honest to Doctor Who

The last few pages of The Making of Doctor Who deserve their own separate post: for some reason, it was felt necessary or appropriate to include a short essay by "the Rev John D Beckwith, AKC, Chaplain to the Bishop of Edmonton" about the relationship of Doctor Who in particular and sf in general with Christianity in particular and religion in general. It is a rather bizarre piece of writing; I do wonder why Dicks and Hulke (or their editor) felt it should be in the book. Anyway, I am posting it beneath the cut; make up your own minds.
