Dr Dorian

Although Dr Dorian appears in only one chapter in the book, he plays a significant role. He is a doctor and therefore carries serious scientific clout and so when he says that Fern may well be right about the animals speaking and that doctors have things they don't understand, he lends credibility to the whole story. Dr Dorian is clearly a sensible man that the Arables trust and when he suggests that there are things in the world that no one could explain, he opens up imaginative possibilities for each reader. Dr Dorian also points out that it is a miracle that spiders know how to build webs in the first place and points out how wondrous nature really is.
