It’s a fact that the European / Greater Mediterranean history isn’t as white as western history textbooks and media make it. If you won’t listen to me, listen to Doctor Who played by Peter Capaldi:
Bill: “Regency England, a bit more black than they show in the movies.”
Doctor Who: “So is Jesus. History is a whitewash.”
Doctor Who‘s tenth season seems to be working hard to rescue the series from the preceding slump of mediocrity. This bit of deliciousness comes from the episode “Thin Ice” (s. 10, ep. 3), written by Sarah Dollard. Image via Ninon / amanitacaplan on Tumblr.
I may have to pick up Doctor Who again.
Note: I wasn’t paid or perked to mention this; just passing along a good thing.
