The emerging representation of women and minorities in a movie, soap operas, series, etc is what I usually call "exotified representation" and it's negative and various aspects. Is it nice LGBT/Black/Women teens/children seeing that there's LGBT/Black/Women protagonists? Yes, really is. But it ain't enough to put these characters in order to fill quotas and we always need to analyse how these characters are being put on the movie/series. What we see, most of the times, are empty, stereotyped characters with no complex personality whose main function is only to fill those quotes of minorities and behaving in an unnatural and not-inspiring way; LGBT doing only LGBT stuff, giving the LGBT kiss on the last scenes of the movie (and the movie's direction turning it into a greatest spectacle, not helping the homophobic ones to face is as normal) women doing forced "empowering" attitudes... but it's far from true - Everybody, after all, are HUMANS, with our personal abilities, different interests different dreams, anyway, the same complexity of a common cis white hetero man!!! How can we say that that exotified representation won't happen on Dr Who?
