No love for Martha Jones? I thought she was one of the Doctor's most attractive companions.

Mrbogey: I always got a kick when they threw a black actor(s) into a scene that takes place in long ago London. I imagine 18th century London must have been whiter than Maine.

London was one of the biggest ports at the centre of the biggest empire in the world in Victorian times with a large China town so non-white faces in London wouldn't be out of place.

Now a non-white face outside of the big ports of the time (London, Bristol, Liverpool,Cardiff etc) would be rare but in no means impossible. The first black police officer was in Carlisle in 1837.

We are a mongrel nation and stonger for it.

Even the Dr Who writers made fun of themselves with that ultimate politically correct couple of the future bit in that one episode last season.

the problem is that you end up with The Bureau

I have 3 gay friends. One of them is, well, flaming. The other two, honestly, you'd struggle to tell. None of them ever mentions their gayness much.
