Martha, Martha, Martha

For all those who are versed in all things Doctor Who, you know who I am referring to. It’s the companion of the Doctor by the name of Martha Jones, played by the lovely Freema Agyeman.

That’s where I am in my second time through Doctor Who.

Martha gets a bad rap for being the companion who pines unrequitedly after the Doctor, who still only has eyes for his first companion, Rose Tyler. I know, I know. It sounds like a bad plot line from a cheesy 80’s soap opera, but trust me, it’s much better than it sounds.

It’s unrequited love with killer robots, traveling through space and time, and assorted other creatures, both good and evil.

Does the new series have the same magic as the classic series? Probably not. Is it a good way to escape from the current climate of panic and pandemic? Absolutely.

And so the quest continues.
