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.
This is literally a male on female example of the “friendzone” and I love that Martha’s decision to get out of that situation rather than spend the rest of her life pining over him for the sake of preserving their friendship is portrayed as a perfectly healthy and acceptable response. She prioritized her emotional well being over his desire for platonic companionship and that is absolutely okay.
FUCK YEAH! MARTHA!
But seriously, I will preach this concept on and on forever. If a girl or guy only wants to be friends with you and you want something more, it’s okay to walk away all together. Sometimes that is truly the better solution.
Martha Jones will always be my favorite companion. <3
