Alan Cumming is a good get. I can't wait so see him ham it up. This and the idea of a colonial India episode with a modern budget have immediately compensated for "Rosa Parks fights the Zygons".

It fills me with dread, personally. If theyíre deluded enough to think Rosa Parks is a sensible setting for a BBC show with a white protagonist, why wonít they gently caress up British colonialism in India? (Or worse, whitesplaining Indiaís internal class issues, whether Britainís in there or not.)

Iíll be glad if Iím proven wrong and these are both handled sensitively, but I have a hard time seeing what that looks like in either case, let alone both in the same season. Even the decision to take them on feels entitled.

Nuance? I'm not the one getting all and worked up with Dread over a hypothetical racist episode that hasn't occurred yet. The reason I say people will BOYCOTT WHO FOREVER is I assume they are worried that if the show is deemed horribly racist they'll have to stop watching. And your smug backseat modding note has been noted and you can be sure I'll take it under advisement with all the due weight it deserves.

I guess I need to point out to the only person here who didn't get it that the words "I am filled with dread" were filled with rhetorical hyperbole.

Filled! To the literal edge! Madness!

I'm sorry you don't understand how people talk on the internet in 2018, OP.
