Why Doctor Who is Awesome.

Image So I am currently watching some Classic Doctor Who for the first time, specifically the tenth anniversary episode The Three Doctors from 1972-73, in the spirit of the upcoming fiftieth anniversary of the series. Upon viewing these new adventures, I realized what it is I think I love about the show and science fiction at large. It showcases a person traveling throughout all space and time, encountering diverse species and treating them all with the utmost respect and understanding. The Doctor always tries to help and whenever a conflict occurs, never uses violence and always gives his enemies a chance to peacefully resolve their differences. As it relates to student affairs, I feel like this show and most science fiction can teach us a lot about acceptance and inclusivity. It comes easy to The Doctor and his actions can showcase how easy it should be for us to be respectful of difference in others, wherever we might find it.
