This week's Doctor Who's Day topic is least favorite companion. I had to think about this one for a moment because I don't hate any of the companions, but I decided that there is one that I like the least.
Oh Martha, I so wanted to like you. In her first episode, we learned that Martha was a medical student about to be a doctor. She accepted the Doctor and jumped right in to help when the hospital was taken to the moon and overrun with Judoon. She came across as smart, strong, independent, and just a bit sassy.
But starting in the next episode, things started to change. Suddenly Martha started reading the Doctor wrong and she was in love with him. The rest of the season was spent watching Martha pine for the Doctor and be all pouty when he didn't pay attention to her.
It didn't help when the Doctor would mention Rose or elude to previous companions. Then, she got all green eyed monster and it was just annoying.
Martha did manage to redeem herself a bit at the end when she saved the world. But in the end, she chose to leave the Doctor because he didn't reciprocate her feelings.
It's not Martha's fault she was written so poorly, but for that, she's my least favorite companion.
Who's your least favorite companion?
