Anglicans to stay up till Midnight to witness The Doctor’s regeneration

In a Midnight Special, the Archbishop of Canterbury will regenerate himself into a younger, less hirsute version.

In a Midnight Special, the Archbishop of Canterbury will regenerate himself into a younger, less hirsute version.

Fans of the Church of England are expected to stay up until Midnight on December 31st to witness the regeneration of Doctor Rowan Williams into the 105th Archbishop of Canterbury.

Eschewing a Christmas Day Special, the C of E opted for a midnight event on the brink of a New Year for the transition between the 104th Prime Lord and his successor. Controversially, the new Prime Lord of the Church of England is not a Doctor and is not expected to have a female Bishop as a travelling companion (at least for his first few series).

It is expected that the Church of England will begin marketing figurines of the new Archbishop early in 2013, together with updated versions of his trademark Sonic Crozier and unique travelling machine the TARDIS (Theological And Reflective Discussions In Synod).

  4. Can we have a credit roll during the prayers of the people with the new improved “heads”? Every church in the Anglican Communion can pray for the ABC this way… and all other bishops. 😉

  5. Does not compute. TARDIS will self-destruct due to inherent self-contradictory paradox: “Theological And Reflective Discussions” and “In Synod”.

    (P.S. Definition of “paradox”: two similar doctors. Keep saying until the penny drops.)
