Davies will still add in plenty of much needed diversity, and some fine sprinkling of inclusion throughout his new series of Who. The BBC is all about using ethic people to push a fully multicultural Britain using endless dramas and comedies to promote less white people, and more ethic non white people. It seems white identity and history is being erased in documentaries and drama series with a historical angle. Just look at some eps of Dr Who more recently. It's all very devisive behaviour from the BBC. But then again, the BBC is their to educate (laugh), and also inform the viewer with its 'expert' view and rewriting of the historical context of white history that doesn't fit the new world of diversity. Russell T. Davies is as diverse and inclusive as they come, and fits in nicely with the BBC mantra.
It seems strange that they would follow a policy of inclusivity to foster division? Isn't there a paradox in your analysis? Or is it that it fosters division only in a certain type of person?

I must admit I rolled my eyes too as it does feel like its a decision based on 'isn't it about time we had a Doctor who was... (fill in minority)'. However, just like Duane Jones in NotLD perhaps he did simply have the best audition?

It's not the ethnicity of the Doctor that troubles me it's the direction of the show in general which seems to be 'the message' is more important than the story.

I'm also not hugely optimistic about RTD's return as most second time around's cannot recapture the past. Just ask us Newcastle United fans about Kevin Keegan's second coming...

Anyway, we will see. It surely can't get any worse than it already is...?

Davies will make sure Doctor Who is everywhere once again. He'll promote it like crazy. In one three minute interview yesterday he promoted it more than Chibnall's done his entire tenure.
