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.
Martha is amazing. I just love her to bits.
Martha was a character who initially put others’ happiness and trouble before her own. But this moment was her saying “No, I need to help my family right now and I also need to move on.” Everyone wants to stay with the Doctor forever, which is fine. But it’s not what Martha deserved, under the circumstances she & Ten were in. So she got out, and she did it with grace, dignity, & class. She didn’t accuse the Doctor for anything, didn’t regret anything. I love it.
