IF THIS ISN’T YOUR FAVOURITE YOU’RE LYING
If one more person tells me how much they hate Martha, I’m going to flip out. I just got a facebook message saying this: “Can I tell you something? /I really hated Martha.” I gave him a single chance and asked why, and his answer was this: "She’s just not Rose."
Seriously, dude? You hate Martha because she isn’t Rose? Rose was my favorite companion too, especially while watching Series 3, and even long after I’ve caught up she’s still my favorite. But why is it okay to hate Martha because she isn’t Rose??? Is that her fault? After Rose’s story arc had ended at the Series 2 finale, did you expect the writers to clone her for the next character? Did you need another spunky blonde to do it for you? Or maybe it was Martha’s personality, instead of her looks? I hate to break it to you, but one person can’t stay on the show forever. Rose went away. So? I loved her to death and I always will. But Martha went away, Donna went away, and the Ponds went away. When Donna lost her memory, did everyone shit on Amy and Rory because they weren’t Donna? No.
Grow up. If you met someone with two heartbeats, had your hospital land on the moon, and then found out that the man was an alien and an alien vampire was running around your hospital, I don’t think you’d handle it as well as Martha did. If witches were trying to murder the Doctor, I doubt you could save him with CPR. I don’t think you’d be so gracious about being the rebound, either. Martha left when it was right for her to leave. I may not have been happy with the fact that Rose was gone, but I never let that cloud my judgement of her.
You’re angry at RTD for changing out companions. Maybe you’re annoyed at the Doctor for never telling Rose what we all know he wanted to tell her. But don’t blame it on the next companion, just because she’s the next companion. All you’re doing is portraying yourself to be the whiny 12-year-old who puts worms in their dad’s new wife’s bed because “you’re not my real mom.”
We share each other’s memories. You sent him to Utopia.
They’re us. They’re humans. The human race from the future.
I agree completely nonnie. I think it’s pretty sad that people don’t like Martha, especially because the reasoning (but she’s not Rose! but she’s so whiny!) is generally founded in various -isms and has no basis in canon anyways.
But yay for Martha lovers like you, that’s why this blog exists!
Here’s a gif to make you feel better.
