positive lady characters meme → martha jones + being friends with other women
Even with Rose! It wasn’t ‘Ugh, this bitch,’ or even ‘Oh great, now she’s back I’ll never have a shot!’
It was, ‘Oh my god, he found you.’
Martha Jones rises above all the petty, jealous crap, and brings everyone up along for the ride.
Yes I did.
Doctor Who Meme: Six Companions → Martha JonesThe Doctor: Martha Jones, you saved the world.
Martha: Yes I did. I spent a lot of time with you thinking I was second best, but you know what? I am good.
30 days of who → favorite female companion / a character that you feel the need to defend / a character you didn’t like at first, but just needed convincing
Did you really believe that?
#I love it because martha is all ‘you’re such a fucking idiot’ #and she laughs at the master #she laughs at the fucking psycho who has been destroying earth and who kept her family prisoners #she laughs at someone who could kill her any second #she makes him look like a moron #she takes the power away from him and she turns the tables (via iceinherheart-kissonherlips)
YES THIS IS WHY THIS IS MY FAVORITE MARTHA MOMENT
Also, two thoughts (neither of them new, but I never connected them before) just clicked in my head:
The first thing: Martha is in the Doctor’s role in this episode. Not just that she’s the one saving the day, but TO THE MASTER AS WELL. He puts all his energy into capturing her, defeating her, humiliating her, because he doesn’t want to admit he was ever afraid of her. The Doctor’s spent a year being boring and of no interest to him no matter how hard he prods. It’s incredibly telling that by the end of the year, he’s tormenting the Doctor to try and get at Martha through the people she loves, instead tormenting Martha to get at the Doctor. Martha is the Master’s true archenemy in LotTL, at least for the first three-quarters of it.
The second thing: Mind of Evil. The one thing the Master fears most in the universe is the Doctor laughing in his face.
And when Martha takes on the Doctor’s role, what does she do? THIS GIFSET, YOU GUYS.
