I will be looking at an episode that we watched a while ago titled “World War Three.” This episode I noticed a lot of diversity that I wasn’t used to seeing within the previous episodes. The type of diversity I noticed in this episode was racial diversity in a good way. Sometimes Doctor Who episodes try and display racial diversity and they do a bad job of displaying it. It then is looked at negatively by the viewers; even if their intentions were not negative. Usually in these episodes the white man and sometimes the white girl will be the one to save the day. This episode was different than that. This time Mickey who is black, had a huge role in saving the day. He not only saved the main characters but also saved everyone on the planet. I thought this was cool to see because it wasn’t something the show Doctor Who was used to doing. I also feel like this was a big stepping stone for this show. It showed people that it wasn’t like the classic who anymore. The Classic Who had no racial diversity and when they did try and have racial diversity it comes off as racist to us now. I believe the point of having Mickey save the planet in this episode was to show everyone that the new who was a different show in a way. Like I said, the Classic Who lacked racial diversity, but that was how the culture was in the days classic who was made. New who is made in a much different time and it should be expected to have some racial diversity. The show still lacks racial diversity of course, but this was a big step for the show in my opinion. Like we have talked about in class, it would be nice to see a Doctor Who isn’t a white male. There will be a female doctor next which is a step in the right direction. Next, it would be nice to see a person of color become to doctor. If/when this happens, it will be interesting to see the numbers of viewers change. This will give us a good idea of how the world still has a problem accepting racial diversity. Hopefully we wouldn’t see any decrease in viewers, but that more than likely wouldn’t be the case. I believe this is the reason why no person of color has been the doctor yet, because of fear of major loss of viewers.
