Episode 3 sees 'Doctor Who' challenge ideas about race in honour of Bill.
The third episode of 'Doctor Who' series 10 is coming this weekend, and with it some very serious themes regarding race and the 'whitewashing' of history. Previous episodes have already touched on LGBT issues and the dangers of technological advancements, but this could be the most important episode yet.
With the Doctor's (Peter Capaldi) latest companion being the mixed-race Bill (Pearl Mackie), she's raised some questions about how her race might affect how people treat her when they go back in time in the TARDIS in the next episode 'Thin Ice'. Of course, the Doctor's seen more race wars in the history of the universe than anyone, so we're sure he'll have some insightful comments to make on this subject.

'Doctor Who' returned to our screens this weekend, gaining rave reviews for what would be the start of Peter Capaldi's final outing as the titular character in the long-running sci-fi series. Though we know his regeneration is right around the corner, we're not exactly sure when or how it will take place, or even who will be stepping into Capaldi's shoes once all is said and done.
Series 10 will be Peter Capaldi's last in the titular role on 'Doctor Who'
Joining the show in late 2013, Capaldi took the reins as The Twelfth Doctor from Matt Smith, who had served in the position for almost four years. Capaldi was quite an odd choice to step into the Doctor's shoes and didn't immediately earn the same sort of reviews as his predecessors, but as time went on and he got more comfortable in the role, he proved that he was exactly the right man for the job.
