Hi! Yes, Beakman is probably more the Doctor's style, though I'm sure he'd thoroughly approve of both (with perhaps the occasional dig at the ridiculous misconceptions of primitive human science, depending which incarnation 8)

"Family of Blood" (the TV version has two episode titles, so I prefer to use the unique one for the whole story) is easily one of the best of the RTD-era TV stories, but I think most of the changes from the book "Human Nature" make it weaker. And I kept expecting John Smith to be played by Sylvester McCoy, which was quite disconcerting! I agree with most of your comments, but I think avoiding the race issue would have been a cop-out; most black women in early 20th century England would have had a less-than-positive time.

I was really annoyed by the TV version changing the ending from white poppies to red poppies.
