    I was going to say Beat Generation, but did an image search. They look like young Conservatives, except Ginsberg who looks like the prototype Hippy.

    Sure.

    In the late 60's, having a Russian, a Japanese a Black and interracial sexual relations was JUST as "SJW and PC" for the prevailing social conditions of the time, they just didn't have handy contractions for what they were seeing (or memes).

    3 episodes...

    So - we are 3 episodes in, and... I'm accepting this new Doctor as much as I'm not, but I'm really still waiting for a blow-away episode.

    If we just, for example, look at the modern era...

    Eccelston - we had Rose, The End of the World, and The Unquiet Dead. Now - Rose can be a bit laborious on re-watch, and I don't sit down to watch TUD all that often, but TEOTW got a lot of mileage in the day. It added to the mystery of who the Doctor was, it threw spanners in the whole companion "story" by making Rose very uneasy about everything - plus giving us a fairly fun murder mystery.

    Tennant - If we ignore Xmas... New Earth, Tooth and Claw, School Reunion - 3 fairly solid outings to introduce our new Doctor, with New Earth in particular giving us some interesting interactions between 10 and Rose brought about by Cassandra. By the next ep, Doc and Rose are absolutely on path to happily ever after. (Be that good or bad.)

    Smith - Eleventh Hour, Beast Below, Victory of the Daleks. Ok - Spitfires in space was trash, but Beast Below actually gave me a lot of hope for this kid actor who was given the keys to my TARDIS. He proved himself to me, as well as Moffat's amazing talents at spinning a yarn.

    Capaldi - Deep Breath, Into the Dalek, Robot of Sherwood - I loved Capaldi, though maybe wasn't keen on the direction they took his character til his final season. Regardless, these stories very much showed who this Doctor was going to be - a cross between 6 and err, well - 12.

    Whitaker - We are 3 stories in, and... I don't feel desperate to see the next episode. I will watch - not saying I wont - but I can wait... Maybe it's the companion mix - or perhaps it's not the mix, rather just the lack of knowing enough about them...

    Something I thought of. When the TTR (time travelling racist) spoke to Ryan about "your kind" and that he was putting things right. It just occurred to me he might not have specifically meant black people but humans, maybe by his future time humanity has become so common across the galaxy that we are spreading tolerance, peace and acceptance everywhere and this has pissed him off.

    He wants humanity put back in its place..

    Also to me the singer at the end sounded like Adele till I looked up who it was.
    That's what I thought too because...I really imagine that racism would take on a new form that far into the future. It'd be nice if we can explore that again.

    I doubt we've seen the last of the villain either, but I half expected that he would have done something to alter the future from whatever point he was sent back to, so the fabric of "now" suddenly changed.
    I really enjoyed this episode and it certainly did remind me of Timeless. I could easily see the team doing the very same thing...though they'd have no "Mexicans" . It's almost uncanny.

    Were the previous modern seasons like this? I ask because I wouldn't even catch it in this episode...besides that one tiny little conversation Ryan and Jaz had.

    Personally, blow away episodes have become way too much. I like this slow and steady build up. I am sure we'll get some heat pumping timey wimey nonsense, but I like it when it is paced out. I also like that the companions don't seem to be part of some world ending mystery of doom. That was getting ridiculous.

    Feels like the villain was the last thing thought about in this episode and maybe it was too on the nose? I agree that the music at the end wasnt needed.

    Still getting used to this Doctor but I feel like Im not as excited about Doctor Who anymore, maybe Im still adjusting to a new show runner, new composer, new style of writing. Definately sticking with it though!
    I expected the villain to appear before the end of the season.

    We can only speculate as to who he is. My thought: What if he's the son of The Master and Missy? I know that sounds weird, but I wouldn't be surprised if he is.

    Like much of the season, this ‘baddy’ was very bland, uninteresting. I hope we never see him again.

    Quite a few, especially the last season of Capaldi's run as the Doctor. Even the older ones, especially the 7th and Ace put forward the notion of the companion being just as important as the Doctor. Rose created Jack being immortal, and Clara protected the doctor across his entire timeline up until her death.
    Who has -always- had a hand in the social and political, much like Star trek has.

    Sorta.
    She's not as well known as MLK, but would you be surprised that MLK is well known outside the US?
