Susana Loza argues that, although the Chris Chibnall / Jodie Whittaker era of Doctor Who may appear to offer a progressive vision, multiculturalist images can disguise the violent racism of Britain’s imperial past and can lead to the ‘racial amnesia’ surrounding this past, issues which have returned in specific ways in relation to Brexit Britain. Such an idea is not unique to the Chibnall / Whittaker era but, in order to make this argument, Loza concentrates on the specific episodes ‘Demons of the Punjab’, ‘Rosa’ and ‘Spyfall’ and ties these narratives in with a real-world historical background.
