Incredibly well handled TV
21 October 2018 | by lukedavis-25545See all my reviews

Doctor Who is and has always been a show about time and space! When people complain about having no aliens and spaceships they're just narrow minded. The show began as an entertaining way to educate children about important historical events and this episode does this expertly.

Children will watch this episode and realise that racism and bigotry exists in the world and will be inspired to fight it. It isn't a political correctness preach it is a true story about an inspirational women and this episode helps put the viewer right into that historical moment.
