Doctor Who: Thin Ice

Can't say that this one overly struck me; well it certainly held my attention for the whole episode, it didn't exactly thrill me. Bill Potts is proving to be a superb companion and Twelve has got his character down pat. However, the rest of the episode left me cold (pun intended) – there were no real standout guest performances and the street urchins... well, this show has done them a lot better.

Just how many people of colour were there in London in 1814? That's what I'd like to know.

I've seen figures of 20,000 black people in London for the 18th century, and even if that's a high total, there are documented slaves, servants, shopkeepers, seamen and so on, so they were certainly a visible minority.
