Doctor Who Racist? Go Screw Yourselves, Academics!!!

0

Less than a minute ago I read a blog post on how academics all over the world (Americans) declared Doctor Who to be an abysmally racist show that confers with the most traditional and primitive views. Well, dear academics, this is utter horse shit, and you can screw yourselves!!! Yes, please do that as by doing so you will be making a better use of your time, and leave Doctor Who alone! If you were actually real academics, would you be bothered with a television show? Isn’t there something more important in the world to study? Why pick on a show that has turned into a geek religion, because you never mess with the geeks and live to tell the tale. Like Tony Stark said, “You know the thing about smart people is that they have their asses covered.” So let me try and penetrate that thick ‘academic’ skull of yours with some smart and valid arguments.

Firstly, in the very first season, Rose Tyler the Doctor’s companion is dating a black guy named Mickey Smith who is played by Noel Clarke. Agreed, in the beginning Mickey isn’t the stand up macho dude who would have a huge impact on you, but the character development was such that before the end of the second season he is named the Defender of the Earth. Oh yes, he is. Would this have been possible if the entire cast and crew along with the production house of Doctor Who would have been racist?

In the third season the Doctor had a companion named Martha Jones played by Freema Agyeman. FYI, she is black. Yes, the Doctor did not fall madly in love with her, he couldn’t have because he already loved Rose, but he did treat Martha with a lot of respect and was always concerned with her welfare. He battled monsters and rescued her heroically before she crashed into the sun. Would this have been possible if the show had been based on a racist mentality?

Now you ask why the doctor did not fight slavery, oh you daft ‘academics’, the Doctor cannot change fixed incidents in time. He keeps warning his companions against it too, and so there is no way that he could have saved the mankind from slavery. The Doctor creates a sense of belonging. All over the world people are connected with the help of this fandom, irrespective of their nationality or the colour of their skin. It is a TV show people, leave it alone. Spend your time studying something that is legitimate instead of flinging your crappy views on a TV show. Watch it if you like it, if not, for the love of God stop passing judgments.

Mickey Smith: The Man Least Spoken About

Mickey Smith, the working class boyfriend of Rose Tyler in the TV show Doctor Who, is one of the least talked about character in the show. He is grossly underestimated, and also not looked upon with the gratitude that he so rightfully deserves. You will find numerous pictures and GIFs of the Doctor, his companions and even the monsters that the Doctor fights, but just like Inspector Lestrade from Sherlock, you will barely find anything that appreciates Mickey.

Agreed, that in season 1 of the show mickey was portrayed as a daft and panicky boy, forever awaiting the hint of the sound that marks the arrival of the TARDIS, and honestly, even I wasn’t such a big fan of his. However, in the second season, Mickey is suddenly transformed into an action hero who struts around with a big gun, fighting the Cybermen and trying to save both the universes.

The character development of Mickey Smith is quite remarkable and the fact that when he landed in the parallel universe with Rose and the Doctor, he chooses to stay behind with his blind grandmother instead of tailing Rose wherever she choose to go with the Doctor. That is the first time I felt an inkling of admiration for Mickey Smith.

Mickey isn’t glamorous, cocky and brilliant like the Doctor, and maybe that is why besides the Doctor he is out shadowed and thus ignored to a large extent by fans of the show. However, Mickey Smith, you are amazing, and worthy of an applause. *clap clap clap*
