why would it be Dr who?

 

It was the BBC’s Jewel in the Crown, and they have been trying to re-create that success ever since.

Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe for Atheists

No, it really isn’t. 🙂   This is not the place to start a religious discussion,so I will only say that I feel that’s the theme that seems to always get picked up on, but there is so much more to the book than that. For me the most powerful theme is the one about Parental responsibility. Lyra’s real parents are monsters. (One is a magnificent monster, but a monster all the same). She acquires a series of wonderful substitute parents as the books unfold. But there are a great many other themes, far more than you would expect in a book for kids, and it deserves good treatment at the hands of adaptors.
