Rimi: Oh My God
Rimi: Does everyone know about this?
Putting down the newspaper on to his lap
Owen: Know about what?
Rimi: Doctor Who
Pulling up the paper in front of his face. Nonplussed
Rimi: He’s amazing. The Doctor. And oh my god Steven Moffat. How does he make the Doctor and Sherlock?
Eleanor: Yeah. Why?
Rimi: I can’t believe Steven Moffat is a guy
Eleanor: Wait why can’t you believe he’s a guy
Rimi: Because how can one person come up with characters like the Doctor and Sherlock? I just can’t get over how a living breathing person can come up with such resonant heroes in this modern age
Owen: I wouldn’t call Sherlock a hero, and he didn’t invent him
Rimi: I know. He’s re-invented him for us
Rimi: The Doctor sort of is!
Eleanor: You make him sound like Jesus
Rimi: He never dies, he’s the ultimate hope in a desperate situation. He practices what he preaches, which is to be a doctor and so to always help people; whatever the context to save the lives of others – regardless of species!
Eleanor: No, this Moffat guy
Rimi: He’s The Writer
Owen: You need to get out more
Rimi: I am getting out more
Eleanor: I can see what you mean. The Writer is like Jesus
Rimi: No, The Doctor is and Sherlock
Owen: I don't want to be a dick about it but how is Sherlock like Jesus?
Rimi: He saves people too, but he’s tainted with sin which is like human beings in the Bible. Eve and Adam
Owen: But if Sherlock is Jesus then he’s not one of us
Eleanor: Jesus isn’t a human being
Rimi: Fine. Sherlock is like Jesus but not Jesus ok, whereas The Doctor is Jesus. That’s why he keeps regenerating!
Eleanor: That’s the Phil joke
Rimi: No that’s a joke about the Pope
Orlando: I bet you’re going to say the Pope is like Jesus I suppose
Rimi: He’s not though. Even I know that Orlando. Sorry did we disturb you from your writing
Orlando: No no, not to worry, it’s just another book review
