From 2012-2015, I was a supporter of the Green Party of England and Wales, led by Caroline Lucas. I should say, despite my independent status, a lot of my personal political views are in line with the policies of the Greens, so you could still consider me a Green, but I am not. Why?
So, here we go, another Doctor Who rant. This time, not about casting, but more about the criticism of the new and bold direction the show seems to be taking when it hits TV screens in Autumn in 2018.
