My Friend the Doctor

If I were a vegetarian, this might well be my favorite movie.  And vegetarian or no, it’s right up there… Delicious, and oddly issue-ful.  Racism, animal rights, women’s roles, and because it’s Anthony Newley, a strangely large dose of class consciousness.

My brain is also presently colonized by Dr. Who, and the two Doctors are clearly variations on the same British archetype: the daft superhero with high emotional walls and a heart of gold.

Who else falls into this catagory?  Any thoughts?
