Statistical and Visual Representation of POC characters in New Who

I used data from the wonderful burntlikethesun.

The first set of data (colour coded in reds and pinks) is based on the number of POC with dialogue, but counting recurring POC each time they appeared in separate episodes. For example, instead of Martha just being counted once, she is was counted for each separate episode she appears in. The second set of data (colour coded in greens) is based on the number of POC with dialogue, but only counting each recurring POC once. So Martha and Mickey were each only counted once. The first set of data gives some idea of how important POC are to the plot, how developed they are etc. The second set of data is an indicator of how many individual POC with dialogue we have. 

(This data does not include minisodes, and does not including at least 4 WoC in prosthetics from RTD’s era: Jabe, Matron Casp, Sister Jatt, Chantho)

To give a fair comparison of the eras (since obviously RTD’s era has more episodes) I divided the number of POC in each set of data by the number of episodes from each era (not including the minisodes). This gave the average number of POC in each episode for each set of data. I then multiplied this value by 100 to give an accurate representation of how many POC with dialogue would be in 100 episodes from each era, for both sets of data. (Obviously in Moffat’s era, this would be if current trends continued.) 

I then represented these numbers on graphs.

The data used was raw data, and no one can deny that there is a problem here. The number has fallen by more than half since Moffat. We’ve had a serious decline in the number of POC in speaking roles. Oh, but Moffat’s show is so ~progressive~ isn’t it?

I remember all the Doctor Who fanfics I used to read where Rose often got badly stereotyped as a damsel in distress whom the Doctor had to swoop in and save and smooch but the way I remember Doctor Who 90% of their relationship was the Doctor just setting Rose loose on people who had done something to offend them and sitting back giggling in the corner as she shouted
