Wat was het verhaal van John Doe in de gelijknamige tv-serie?


De show John Doe uit 2002/2003 is geannuleerd voordat we erachter kwamen wie John was of waar hij vandaan kwam. Weet iemand daar meer van? John was zo'n interessant personage - had geheugenverlies, kon alleen zwart en wit zien, had toegang tot de som van menselijke kennis (zoals het aantal kuiltjes op een golfbal).

Van Wikipedia , afgeleid van een interview met de makers van de serie in Entertainment Weekly:

Due to the series' cancellation, the final episode ended with an unresolved cliffhanger, revealing that Digger, John's close friend, was in fact the true leader of the Phoenix Organization. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, series creators Brandon Camp and Mike Thompson revealed what would have happened and John Doe's true identity.

"Make that someone who looked like John's friend. The villain unmasked in the finale was actually just a Phoenix member with some fancy facial reconstruction. Turns out, the Phoenix believed Doe was the Messiah and its members were actually protecting Doe from a second group, which wanted him dead. The truth: Doe was injured in a boating accident. That mark on his chest? A scar left by a piece of shrapnel from the explosion. His Überbrain? A by-product of transcending his body during a near-death experience, traveling to a spiritual plane where all the universe's questions are answered."

In een interview (2006) Dominic Purcell , de acteur die het titulaire personage speelde, had dit te zeggen:

Apparently I was the messiah returned.

[The Phoenix Organization] were working for the Vatican. ... The Catholics. They didn't want it to be revealed that the true Christ had returned.

Van een ander interview (2007) met de acteur:

Well, John Doe was Christ returned. That’s why he knew everything,...
