THIS IS ACTUALLY, REALLY IMPORTANT.
NO BUT SERIOUSLY. MARTHA IS SO FUCKING HONEST THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE SERIES. She loves the Doctor, but he didn’t love her back. And instead of being upset about that, she accepted it. People are allowed to love or not love whoever the fuck they want. And instead of spending her whole life obsessive about him falling I love with her (if you look back on your childhood shows you’ll probably find a few female characters that did that throughout the show) she simply “got out” so that she could move on without hurting anyone, especially herself. We could all learn a shit load of things from Martha.
Martha is amazing. I just love her to bits.
Martha was a character who initially put others’ happiness and trouble before her own. But this moment was her saying “No, I need to help my family right now and I also need to move on.” Everyone wants to stay with the Doctor forever, which is fine. But it’s not what Martha deserved, under the circumstances she & Ten were in. So she got out, and she did it with grace, dignity, & class. She didn’t accuse the Doctor for anything, didn’t regret anything. I love it.
What the fuck do you mean she accepted that he didnt love her did you guys miss all of the scenes where she would get upset? There would be two minutes of the scenen wasted on watching her reaction and pouting when he said anything about rose. Dont believe me? Watch the episode where captain jack comes back and watch her pout and see how much of the episode time is wasted on how sad she is that the doctor doesnt love her. I wish they hadnt made martha be all pathetic fawning over the doctor. It CAN be like Donna and be nothing more than a friendship, gah.
^ I totally agree, I didn’t like Martha because she was always pouting about the fact that Ten was in love with someone else
hey how about u shut the fuck up
Go ahead and tell me that you’ve never pouted when you figure out that your crush is dating someone or likes someone. Because I won’t believe for a goddamned second.
Jealousy is a natural human emotion, whether people want to accept it or not. I won’t deny that I’ve pouted over boys before; I realize now that it was dumb, but I won’t say that it’s never happened. You’re going to get jealous at some point in your life, it’s absolutely inescapable.
But you know what Martha did with that jealousy? She fucking banished it to the goddamn nether regions of space. She realized that it was only hurting her, and she did exactly what was best for her: she got out of it. She got away so that it wouldn’t torture her anymore, and so he could move on and find someone else. And guess what? She found Mickey, who loves her as much as she loves him.
It’s a good life lesson for people of all ages: hurting yourself is never worth it.
