RTD era was racist as were a few classic stories but this article ignores all the actual cases? Black people were consistently portrayed as idiots under RTD.
Bah-wha? Doctor Who under RTD is one of the most racially diverse shows around.

Meanwhile, the article in the OP is bullshit. Maybe Doctor Who has never been a leading voice in getting more minorities on TV and admittedly classic Who is very much white man's TV. But that's a reality of TV in general in the 60s and 70s and it was never racially offensive. Except for Tomb of the Cybermen, that is. "You do not talk to him, he is my servant." That line sums everything up.
