But it does seem to underline the 'nastiness' of some on the right who view any kind of compassionate worldly view within a TV show as the writings of some wishy washy 'liberal' appologist.
Take this last bit of his review:
At this stage, the Fawn and I exchanged groans and rolled our eyes in disbelief. Doctor Who is a genius, a man of the universe...Since when did he acquire the blinkered values of a bearded Sixties sociology lecturer? Why can his superbrain not grasp the point that what may seem like a slave-wage to a bienpensant TV scriptwriter is yet a king’s ransom for a South-East Asian textile worker, who only has his job because of the comparative advantage his nation has in cheap labour? This is A-level economics we’re talking here, not Tardis science.
'Yea, fuck em, their paid quite well considering, how dare they expect to have any workers rights and be treated like human beings!'
Why is showing/highlighting inquality through a TV show something to be sneared at as the opinions of bearded hippies?
I remember, just about, when Dr Who got pulled in the 80's BEING TO VIOLENT was one of the reasons, wonder which areas of the media made that complaint?
