Did you guys not watch the same Utopia/Sound of Drums/ Last of the Time Lords? She was a total badass. She walked the Earth alone, and fought the Master. She saved the fucking world. That should count for something.
She is not a whiny bitch. Have you people never been in unrequited love? It sucks. She couldn’t help falling in love ( I mean, really, it’s the Doctor. I’m sure we would’ve all fallen for him), and then she had to hear him talk about Rose all the time, watch him love someone else even as a human, and then, even through all that, she was strong enough to leave.
She’s intelligent. She’s a doctor, works for UNIT, and holds the Osterhogen key.
She faces racism and sexism, and doesn’t back down from it.
And, most importantly: She’s a Harry Potter fan.
The 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.
Note: This isn’t in response to any particular blog, I saw Martha hate on my dash and this needed to be said
Creator Russell T Davies isn’t messin’ around with the upcoming international season of Torchwood: he’s going after the cream of Hollywood’s A-list actors to fill out the show’s cast. Yesterday, we learned Mekhi Phifer had joined the team, and today, Deadline is reporting that Bill Pullman (Independence Day, While You Were Sleeping) has signed on as a series regular.
According to Deadline, Pullman will play “Oswald Jones, a dangerously clever convicted murderer who escapes his lifelong prison sentence on a technicality and quickly becomes a media sensation. Genuinely repentant yet boiling with lust and rage, Oswald gets caught up in a terrifying worldwide crisis.”
The next season of Torchwood will air on Starz next year. Actors John Barrowman and Eve Myles will reprise their roles as Captain Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper.
