Happy 56th birthday, Doctor Who

And congraulations on your new trailer.

…Anyway, as good as the trailer is, and it is extremely interesting (there’s Stephen Fry and Lenny Henry, and a Racnoss?) my favourite piece of Series 12 promotional material so far is this poster.

“Space for all”, aside from being an excellent mission statement for the show, seems very deliberately to have been crafted as a middle finger to the “I’m so pissed off women and people of colour are appearing in my sci-fi show originally created in part by women and people of colour” crowd. Even as we speak I see people on Twitter complaining about “identity politics.” So well done, guys. Space for all!
