Second: I finished watching Doctor Who season 3, yesterday. I know a lot of people bitched about Martha and how annoying she was due to her love for the Doctor, but you know what? I've always thought she was awesome. Maybe it's because I was never quite fond of Rose that as soon as Martha appeared, I loved her. I've always felt she was cute and adorable. Yeah, her love for the Doctor was almost surreal and 70% unbelievable (I never believed it) but she kept going, she never made a fuss about it, never got super-jealous. I mean, it's like watching a film with a lot of FX and being unable to see the plot or the good performances of the cast. I saw that she pined after the Doctor but that never stopped me from seeing how amazing and smart she is. Smart, loyal, strong, brave, funny,... She's every woman (like the song!)
Thing is, I almost purchased this series because I love Martha. However, I won't do it, I won't even download the episodes from the Internet and record them in a DVD. Why? Because of RTD and his obsession with Rose. It's always "Rose this, Rose that,... blahblablah" So you loved her? ok, but don't treat Martha the way you did. Poor Martha didn't deserve to be constantly reminded of the previous companion of the Doctor and she certainly didn't deserve to be so poorly written as a character. She had so much potential and they just used her a "the girl who travelled with the Doctor after he lost his love" And the Doctor? Always behaving so cold around her. He never gave her (enough) credit for the things she did, regardless of his rejection, and I think that's what hurt her most, not the fact that he'll never love her like she loves him but the fact that he is too blind to see how amazing she is. But she knows she is amazing and now she doesn't need him to see it. Except in the end. Too little, too late.
I loved the last three episodes of this season 3, especially the last one, although I must say I was expecting something more exciting but... yeah, it was cool. JACK HARKNESS IS THE FACE OF BOE!!!!!!!!!!!1111 I know they didn't say it as something 100% sure but... it makes sense, doesn't it? I loved Martha's face when Jack said he was called like that. Priceless XDD Her speech at the end was really sad, not that it made me cry, because it didn't, but I didn't want to say goodbye to her and I felt a bit sorry for the Doctor, because he would be alone again (and I don't understand how I can feel sorry for him when he has been a complete jerk with Martha during the entire season. yeah, well, I know there were moments when he truly appreciated her but still...) And I absolutely loved that little bit about her friend. It was simply amazing, just like Martha
I know she'll be back for some episodes (along with Rose, duh) but oh, I'll miss her anyway.
btw, how scary were those little flying balls! people who travelled to Utopia!!! SCARY!!!
I also saw the Christmas episode with Kylie Minogue as a guest star and I immediately missed Martha. Doctor Who will never be the same without her. Yeah, I know Donna Noble is the next companion and I have the feeling that I will love her and she'll be "my second best" :D I think Martha should have been around for more episodes, yet I love how she was able to carry on with ther life, her degree, her family,... I mean, SHE IS SO STRONG AND I ADMIRE HER SO MUCH *insert thousand of little hearts here*
I'll try to begin watching season 4 asap.
