Steven William Moffat, is a Scottish television writer and producer, known for his work as showrunner, writer and producer of the British television series Doctor Who and Sherlock.
He said that adding fake diversity would send a positive message that would resonate with the whole entertainment industry. "We’ve kind of got to tell a lie. We’ll go back into history and there will be black people where, historically, there wouldn’t have been, and we won’t dwell on that. “We’ll say, ‘To hell with it, this is the imaginary, better version of the world. By believing in it, we’ll summon it forth’.”
He said “for various reasons, it didn’t work out” but that it would be “amazing” for both Dr. Who and his sidekick to both be “non white”. “Two non-white leads would be amazing. In fact, a lot of people would barely notice,” he said.
