Is Doctor Who a revolutionary?

i09 has the answer, and a great chart to go with it:

Doctor Who: Revolutionary or Tool of the Man

Apparently he was much more politically active during the Thatcher era. (Weren't we all?). The graph is enjoyable and dubious in equal measure. Tennant's doctor's actions are indeed difficult to categorize as "revolutionary", but there is something of the radical's desire to return the earth to a better state, especially when it was overrun by the Master at the end of series 3. (Thanks to Loren Rosson for the link).
