  • The Moral Dilemma (1 of 2) - Amongst the most common arguments which have occurred about Doctor Who are those questioning the effect the series has on the morals of its viewers. The producers of the show have always argued that the programme is one of the most morally concerned to be made by the BBC. In part one of a survey of Who's morality, Richard Marson turns the clock back to the start of the series, to survey how the moral philosophy developed.
