My goodness. This show. I've never known it to be this powerful in the 7 years that I've been watching, with the exception of "Vincent and the Doctor" (which still crushes me whenever I watch it). I've noticed a few have compared "Rosa" to that one, but I'll go as far to say that "Rosa" is Doctor Who in its grandest form! A straight-up historical episode with minimal science fiction themes. Krasko is a terrifying villain who is exactly everything I heard about before this episode aired ("Racist Captain Jack" is the phrase that was thrown around - and, boy, is that accurate). I did think the way he was dispatched was rather weak, which makes me hope he'll be a threat in a future episode, and that a certain Torchwood operative and former Time Agent himself assists in dealing with him.
Now I know there are some purists who're saying that the inclusion of Andra Day's "Rise Up" is a bit much for Doctor Who, to which I say, "WHO CARES?!" No, really. *Who* cares! This show cares enough to go the extra mile - to make a sad scene feel uplifting with a song that beautiful. I applaud Chibnall for including it in the episode (and in the end credits, too)! This episode represents everything that I love about the show. And Jodie's still kicking butt as the Doctor! 💙💙 #doctorwho#rosa#rosaparks#series11#bbc#montgomery#alabama#1955#civilrights#blackhistory#jodiewhittaker
