Martha Jones: No Weapons, Just Words

I care about Martha Jones a lot, and sometimes I have emotions about what RTD did to her arc, and then I have to talk about it a lot. So thank you to MQ for giving me an excuse >:D

Long post complete with screencaps coming up.

Particularly considering that she’s basically an international figure for her part in the resistance? Though to be fair, I stopped watching after that season and I’ve heard the Doc “reset” things so the deal with The Master never happened? Idk :/

Yeah, the Toclafane’s presence and rampant murdering of their distant ancestors caused an unstable paradox, and blah blah timey wimey tardis powers the Doctor reset the timeline to just before they arrived, so no one but Lucy, Martha, and Martha’s family remembered what she’d done. Which was a shame because that was a damn fine heroic journey.

I think that Martha Jones becoming a UNIT bounty hunter after series 4 was a waste of not only her medical expertise and legendary public speaking skills but also her entire narrative arc.
