The third episode of the series, 'Thin Ice', shows how Doctor Who and Pearl deal with racism and child slavery in 1814.
A recent episode of the legendary British ‘Doctor Who’ series received unexpected praise from its fans. The movie turns out to be full anti-racist comments and quite radical actions.
In the beginning of the episode, you’ll hear a dialogue you’d surely love.
– Regency England, a bit more black than I realised.
– So was Jesus. History’s a whitewash.
In the middle, the Doctor played by Peter Capaldi punches his racist antagonist in the face for an attempt to insult his young Black companion telling her to “respect her betters”.
Bill (his companion) says: “That was pretty convincing racism for an extra-terrestrial,” and The Doctor replies: “My thoughts exactly.”
In the end, the viewers find out that the racist aristocrat from the episode is the real evil that is much more of a problem than the monster living in the Thames.
Just when I thought I couldn’t love the Twelfth Doctor any more, he goes and punches a racist. #DoctorWho
