Doctor Who was tackling a major historic event on tonight’s episode.

Jodie Whittaker and the rest of the gang headed back to 1947 Lahore, Pakistan.

Demons of the Punjab explored the Partion of India, which saw British India be divided into two independent domions, India and Pakistan.

The group hopped in the TARDIS to see Yasmin Khan’s nan ahead of her tying the knot.

It transpired that Yasmin’s nan was set to marry a Hindu man, ahead of getting hitched to her Muslim grandad.

But the wedding was thrown into chaos when they found out that demons were haunting the land.

Viewers were left divided over the historical storyline.

One social networker questioned: “When does the History lesson end and the Sci-Fi begin?”

While another continued: “Is Doctor Who in danger of becoming a Year 7 history lesson? First Rosa Parks now the partition of India. Don’t get me wrong, I think we all should know about these aspects of history, but is DrWho the right platform?”

A third added: “I’m so confused by tonight’s story.”
