Doctor who: 4x09 “Forest of the Dead” - 7x13 “The Name of The Doctor”
Can you imagine if a female character behaved the way Eleven has behaved? There would be no character more hated in the entirety of media.
If a female acted the way he did all season she would have been roasted alive.
What pisses me off the most though is:
“why didn’t you ever speak to me.”
“I thought it would hurt too much.”
“Well, I’m sure I could have coped-“
“No, I thought it would hurt ME.”
Do people realize how selfish that sounds?
*taps mike* Guys I want to talk about this scene, as it is not only my favourite Martha scene but possibly my favourite companion scene-
Because Martha Jones has just been through ABSOLUTE HELL, and you see that woman there, Professor Docherty? She sort of helped with that! She traded Martha’s life for her son’s. Martha figured she would, but you know, being betrayed can’t be nice.
AND WHAT DOES MARTHA DO when everything is back to normal? SHE FINDS THE WOMAN WHO BETRAYED HER AND SHE FORGIVES HER JUST LIKE THAT AND GIVES HER FLOWERS
Martha Jones (who understands only too well one’s desire to protect one’s family) is THAT COMPASSIONATE AND THAT KIND
