It’s kinda the closest I’ve come to playing myself in a way. It’s like a version of me as a child—the way I felt about the world and everything that was in it. Which we kind of, as we grow older, we possibly box in and change. But it’s like as close to myself as I’ve played, I feel.
Woman Time Lords can control the way they will look when they regenerate, while male Time Lords cannot. This was established in Classic Who, when Romana regenerated.
Also, the Doctor wanting to be Ginger is not about the hair color. In Gallifrey, the only ones to have red hair were the people called Heroes which were beings who were time-sentient (meaning they could see all of the time at the same time). So I doubt they will ever make him ginger.
Gah…Martha. I could not stand her. At first I was like oh cool a doctor in training she’ll be really clever, but nooooo she falls for the doctor.#LIKE NO BITCH HE’S STILL GETTING OVER ROSE FUCK OFF! I cannot be the only one who feels this way.
Actually, I thought Martha was probably the bravest of the lot. Because she did what any of us would do - she fell in love with the Doctor, I would too - but she was self-aware enough to realize when it got unhealthy, and she got out and made a better life for herself, on her own, after literally being the strongest person on the planet during the year that never was, and then when the Doctor found Rose again, Martha was happy for him.
I ship Doctor/Rose. But it isn’t Martha’s fault she fell in love with someone whose literal introduction to her was kissing her full on the mouth. It isn’t like she fell for him on purpose, nobody goes into a crush like that thinking “Gee, I am going to develop romantic feelings solely to spite someone else.”
It doesn’t work that way, and Martha Jones was a star. The Doctor thought she was brilliant; I don’t understand why companion hate is a thing.
I like all the companions. I think if you revisit one you didn’t like, you might find they were better than you thought.
