1. Think Pink


For next week, write up a review of one of the non-white companions in action, thinking about how their character looks under the analytical lens of ‘race’.

Who to choose from:? — well, there’s Chang Lee (Yee Jee Tso), Martha Jones (Freema Agyeman), Sharon Davies (if you care to include the Marvel comics character) – Mickey Smith (Noel Clarke) and of course Danny and Courtney from Series 8.

Or perhaps you will pick a white companion and consider Richard Dyer’s ideas. Who to choose from? — there are too many to list. 

Try to write a paragraph linking a scene to the theme of race. Explain exactly what it is you are observing and why you think it is important.

Write up your review on WordPress.

Don’t forget to follow the Doctor Who by Design blog so I can see your ideas!
