Cult of Personality

Dawkins is going to play himself in the new Dr. Who show.

Showrunner Russell T Davies revealed the casting of the popular author and biologist to The Independent and spoke of the impact of Dawkins’s presence during filming. “People were falling at his feet,” said Davies. “We’ve had Kylie Minogue on that set, but it was Dawkins people were worshipping. He has brought atheism proudly out of the closet!”

“He was as mad and as barking as you’d want him to be.”

Wow, atheists worshipping Dawkins…how apropos.
