More lefty crap on the woke BBC. They ruined doctor who with this diversity crap. David Copperfield was not an Indian man.

What *is* the bbc doing? What are the editorial values for this nauseating show ? What is it up to ? Seems to be determined to alienate the average person. So glad I don't watch BBC anymore. It reeks of moral death.

I get he wants to use best actor but imagine a black Queen Victoria? This isn’t going to end nicely.

An actor is an actor. He plays a character in a story. Here, the BBC is using Patel as a political pawn in their grand multicultural social project. This demeans him as a professional actor and insults his creative work which should be completely free of political interference.
