EXCEPT FOR THAT TIME: POLITICAL AND SOCIAL AWARENESS IN DOCTOR WHO

130 point list of times Doctor Who was 'too politically correct and too social justice warrior influenced'.

(I.e. the whole show.)

Sing it.

That was awesome, thank you for sharing! And it was even missing some important things and characters, and it's still very long and comprehensive and touching on every TV Doctor's era.

I honestly don't know which show those people have been watching who complain about the sudden political and social awareness. And even at times when the show has slipped into problematic territory (say, racist or sexist tropes), it's usually done it without explicit intent as far as I could tell, more because the writers from a privileged position haven't realized they've perpetuated harmful tropes that they've picked up elsewhere. Meanwhile other aspects of the same episode may have been had some strongly voiced liberal/leftist/pacifist values.

I'm not sure what show people who say it never used to be political were watching.

It's always been on the side of the down-trodden. That's who the Doctor is.
