Last night’s ep of ‘Doctor Who’ made show history for a cool and important reason

Doctor Who has been on television since 1963, and is currently one of BBC Worldwide’s most popular shows. Last night, in an episode titled, “Sleep No More,” the sci-fi series made history when it featured a transgender woman for the first time. Trans omedian Bethany Black, who regularly performs stand-up around the UK, played soldier 474, a cisgender character.
