Doctor Who Meets Rosa Parks in “Rosa”

Rosa Parks played by Vinette Robinson

Doctor Who dips into a contentious past for US viewers in Rosa, an episode that introduces a time travelling white supremacist into the noble story of Rosa Parks.

Was Rosa a suitable topic for Doctor Who? Was the era handled well? Do 7 year olds need to know about segregation in the USA 70 years ago? These are all tricky topics to discuss, but middle aged white men Christian Cawley and James McLean give it their best shot in this week’s Doctor Who podcast.
