Doctor Who Debate


Today's debate topic:

I seem to have mislaid my copy of John Tulloch & Manuel Alvarado's Doctor Who: The Unfolding Text (St. Martin's, 1984), but somewhere in there is a comment, originally made about Who Classic but possibly true of Who Lite Contemporary:


We will never see a female, black or working-class Doctor.

Discuss.
