Response to Dr Who and the miners
The Peladon episode must have had a right wing scriptwriter,I
too remember the reference to the 'moderate'.
However the "Green Death" also mentioned by G Burgess was
profoundly anti capitalist.The villain is a multi national
chemicals company called "Global Chemicals" whose boss is
just called the "boss" and is in fact really a giant
Another anti capitalist episode is "The Sun Makers" which
features at the end a succesful proletarian revolution against an intergalactic capitalist monopoly corporation.
In an early 70s story the Dr Who tells a PRC delegation that
he met Chairman Mao in the 1930s and speaks well of him.
Finally story "Inferno" is anti fascist
