What does the legend say?
That you sailed the Atlantic, walked across America.  That you’re the only person to get out of Japan alive. ‘Martha Jones’, they say, ‘She’s gonna save the world.’

“There’s a lot of people depending on you. You’re a bit of a legend.”“What does the legend say?”“That you sailed the Atlantic. Walked across America. That you were the only person to get out of Japan alive. ‘Martha Jones’, they say. ‘She’s gonna save the world.’”

Do you want to know something about Martha Jones? Martha is clever. Martha is brave. Martha was hope when humanity had all but lost it. Do you know what she did? It seems like a lot of you have forgotten. Maybe it slipped your mind. She traveled the world for a year by herself, telling her story, and she saved everyone. She laughed in The Master’s face. She saved the human race, she saved billions of others in the universe from war, and she saved The Doctor. She met someone extraordinary and fell in love with the life he led, as so many others did before her and so many others will after. She fell in love with him, and no, she wasn’t the first. She won’t be the last. And no, she didn’t leave when he didn’t love her back the same way (because he did love her, he loves them all). She stayed, because she knew being with someone she cared about and experiencing things beyond her wildest dreams, things she would never get to do or see otherwise, was worth that ache in her heart. And after she had done all of those wonderful dangerous unbelievable things, after she had done the most important job of all, she got out. When it got to be too much, when her family needed her, when she realized it was dangerous and unhealthy for her to stay in more ways than one and it was time to stop, she did. And she came out cleverer and braver and wiser for it. She wasn’t second best. She’s Martha fucking Jones. And furthermore, she’s met Shakespeare. So stick that in your juice box and suck it.

She’s older than Rose, more secure, but she doesn’t have a boyfriend.  She has her own little flat and her family around her. Rose had only her  mum, but Martha has a big family. She isn’t looking to the Doctor for  guidance or education, she wants adventure. She hasn’t kissed her old  life good-bye though, and I think she intends to go back to qualify as a  doctor. There are funny moments when the Doctor says, ‘I’m the Doctor’  and Martha says, ‘So am I!’ She speaks her mind

Day Two: Favorite supporting female character
Martha Jones from Doctor Who. Martha is actually my favorite character ever. I am in the Who fandom minority with that, but I love Martha to pieces. I feel like she was Russell’s punching bag because he couldn’t write Rose anymore, but among all of that, I feel like Martha was the strongest of all of Ten’s companions. She helped Shakespeare save the world with with a cry of “EXPELLIARMUS!”, gave Joan Redfern a royal bitchslap by naming all the bones in the hand when Joan implied that she wasn’t smart enough to be a doctor because she was black, and she risked her own life by traveling the world and spreading the gospel of the Doctor. People complained that she pined over the Doctor too much, but in the end, she made the tough decision of leaving for her own good. SHE LEFT TO SAVE HERSELF. It broke my heart at the time, but I really do admire Martha for being able to make a decision that most companions never had a choice to make.

there are not enough Martha fans in the world, and i think this says it all. 

I’ve said it before, and so I’ll say it again:
I believe in Martha Jones!

So this is me. Getting out.

30 Days of New Doctor Who | 16. Favorite Martha Moment
As if I didn’t already love Martha enough, that love increased tenfold with this scene. While I enjoyed having Martha aboard as a companion, I loved that she was able to recognize how unhealthy her situation was and got out before it could get any worse. She didn’t need the Doctor for validation of her awesome and that’s one of the many reasons why Martha was my favorite companion for so long. This scene essentially highlighted almost everything I adore about Martha. I may have even cheered the first time I watched this as well. I still maintain that Martha received the best exit out of any of the New Who companions so far.

30 Days of Doctor Who
Day 16 - Favorite Martha Moment
I traveled across the world. From the ruins of New York, to  the fusion mills of China, right across the radiation pits of Europe.  And everywhere I went I saw people just like you, living as slaves! But  if Martha Jones became a legend then that’s wrong, because my name isn’t  important. There’s someone else. The man who sent me out there, the man  who told me to walk the Earth. And his name is The Doctor. He has saved  your lives so many times and you never even knew he was there. He never  stops. He never stays. He never asks to be thanked. But I’ve seen him, I  know him… I love him… And I know what he can do.
