Doctor Who: Many Happy Solar Returns

It’s sometimes quite easy to be analytical with certain Doctor Who stories. Some of them are simply so good that viewing them with an eye to discussing their deeper meaning is impossible to avoid.

But what if you wanted to look at Doctor Who in a completely different light? What if you could take the show and study it by its astrological meanings rather than contextual? It would certainly be a difficult task for many of us to do but some brave souls just won’t take no for an answer.

"Ah, an existentialist!"

“Ah, an existentialist!”

And so welcome to the world of Doctor Who, Mr Robin Calvert, who has pieced together, from a chapter by chapter release in the Blackpool Northern Lights Astrological Society’s ICARUS newsletter, a book entitled Doctor Who: Many Happy Solar Returns, a series-by-series look at Doctor Who from an astrological perspective.

Taking the applied methods of Natal (birth chart to you and me), Progressed (one day from date of birth to forecast each successive year), Transiting (planets, as in transit van) and Solar Return (themes of a year) Charts, the book will examine the content of each series.

Looking at some of the content that Calvert has covered already, from the 1960’s to 1972, it certainly proves to be a very interesting read and will surely delight Doctor Who fans who like to get rather existential when discussing the Daft Man Who Ran Away In A Box.

Robin Calvert doesn’t yet have a publisher for the book. If you’re a publisher and interested in his idea, please get in touch with Kasterborous and we’ll make the necessary introduction.


What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!
