    It took me years to realize that Ohila here and Julia from Hellraiser were played by the same person.

    Sooo, that showrunner news, huh? Unprecedented in Doctor Who history. Are there even that many precedents in the history of lesser live action television (i.e. most of it)? The mind boggles. The best part is that RTD is absolutely one who would double down on quality representation in the show, and continue casting non-male or non-white actors as the Doctor. Hopefully we'll get some decent trans rep along the way.

    I appreciated it even more the second time around now that I've seen more of Riggs' larger aesthetic project. Here he seems to be playing the Anti-Ice Cube, creating his own '90s music video as direct counterprogramming to the toxic examples he calls out in Black Is...Black Ain't. Full of love and pride.
