#okay #so can we talk about how fucking smart this show used to be #maybe things were ridiculous #sometimes #but LABOR CAMPS #ENGLAND FOR THE ENGLISH #and an anti-war captain #and the most telling thing that goes unsaid here #is why history education is important—because who knows if Donna would have realized on her own what ‘labor camps’ mean #and an empowered and educated working class might have stopped the government from going this far #this is also an example of the shock doctrine at work#and ALL OF THAT I got from thirty seconds of a family show #yeah maybe it wasn’t as flashy as it is now #but rtd’s era was so much better #because of moments like this (via omfgcate)
