Another reason why I think that some didn't like Martha was because of how her whole presence was engulfed in Rose's shadow & how the Doctor both was pretty much disregarding/ignoring Martha (only paying attention to her when he wanted her to do something for him) & he was all semi-emo brooding over someone whom wasn't physically dead (I mean Adric actually died but you didn't see him act as weird afterwards), overinflating Rose's importance in the grand scheme of things (she was important but not that important & if one pays attention to companions after her, they knew more about the Doctor & his people than Rose ever did & in Donna's case even piloted the TARDIS).
I partially agree with @Shambala108 . I like Martha but I didn't like that she had to have an automatic crush on the Doctor, especially after the kiss that he initiated & that she really didn't know Jack about him. But she rose to the occasion and endured a year of hell (along with her family) to save her planet from the Doctor's personal enemy. After that, I definitely respect her decision to walk away from that life & ultimately save herself from falling further into her infatuation so she could work on herself & be there for her family (even though 3/4's of them were just flat out annoying). I'm personally glad that she walked away mostly intact & not dying in some fantastical way.
Well now that we know that the Doctor isn't really a Time Lord (just a genetic progenitor, unless they throw another twist at us) and Jenny came from him (he was a him at the time of her progenation) then by extension and in theory, Jenny should count as a Timeless Child too.
The very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common: they don't alter their views to fit the facts, they alter the facts to fit their views. -4 (I think)
Of this era, Sarah Jane, Donna/Wilf, Martha, & Mickey.
From off the top of my head:
1. Something to do with Susan Foreman
2. Jenny, the Doctor's Daughter
3. The Rani during & after the Time War
4. Martha & Mickey's life
5. Jack Harkness' daughter after the 456 incident
6. What happened to Leela & Romana during & after the Time War
7. Something showing us about the Guardians, Eternals, Chronovores, and those types of beings that wasn't shown on the show.
Just to name a few.
Maybe that's one of the reasons classic Doctor Who got canceled, because someone thought that the Cartmel Master Plan was to weird at the time. You're not the only one that has taken a break from Doctor Who, I did after Husbands of River Song and I haven't seen any since then (except from a few YouTube clips and reading about some things on this wiki) but other than that, I lost my passion for watching Doctor Who (though this isn't the only show that I've lost a passion to watch).
This may be off-topic but, maybe the Doctor/Timeless Child is just a Time Lord from another reality in the Doctor Who multiverse? Just a thought.
What I want to know is, how does this revelation affect Susan, Jenny, Meta-Crisis Doctor, and Donna Noble since they're supposedly related to the Doctor or in Donna's case having the Doctor's memories suppressed within her?
Edit: Of course before this episode, I was half expecting Susan to be the Timeless Child and both her and the Doctor ran from Gallifrey because of something to do with that.
I really don't have a favorite season more like I have favorite episodes from certain seasons.
I'm actually waiting to see if River herself shows up again. It could happen.
He's at the top of my list. Happy birthday Tom🎂
When it comes to classic Who shows, I prefer two-parters & maybe four-parters. Modern Who, maybe one or two partners.
Yes, we need that paradoxical closure as to how Jack becomes the Face of Boe, since it's implied that they are one & the same.
I'm glad that they're allowing this character to grow and be more, I mean she's just too interesting a character to just kill off. The possibilities are just beginning.
