Was anyone else a little bit disappointed that the kick ass Lady Counsel Member turned out to be Natasha? Still love Natasha, but for a few glorious seconds, it was awesome to see an older woman come out of nowhere to kick ass.

"It is revealed in the 12th episode, that a “senior agent” was holding onto Skye as a baby whilst he was mortally wounded with a gunshot wound to the neck with which he later bled out. In a much later episode, it is revealed that Agent Garrett - also a senior agent - received a third degree burn to the neck which he presented to Skye in the interrogation room. It is not yet known if there is any connection to Garrett and Skye.” [x]

Oh my. Did you catch this?

#MY ACTUAL FAVE SCENE #SHE’S JUST LIKE #REALYL? #YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO BE THE MASTER? #AND YOU’RE GENRE SAVVY ENOUGH TO MAKE SURE THE DOCTOR IS DISABLED ASAP #BUT YOU LEGIT BELIEVE THAT THE KEY TO DEFEATING YOU WAS A GAME OF HUNT THE MACGUFFIN?

This scene is about so much more than that, though. Just before this gifset starts, the Master is looking past Martha to address the Doctor. “Such a disappointment, this one,” he says. “Days of old, Doctor, you had companions who could absorb the time vortex.  This one’s useless!” He’s insulting Martha twice over — once with the literal insults he’s saying, and once by addressing his words to the Doctor rather than Martha herself. He’s completely dismissing her as worthless.

This is important — is critical to understanding her character’s arc, I would say — because it’s exactly the sentiment that Martha has been struggling with all season-long. The whole time she’s traveled with the Doctor, she’s felt as though she doesn’t measure up. The Doctor talks about how great Rose was, he keeps secrets from Martha, and then as John Smith he falls in love with Joan Redfern, rather than her. When she meets Captain Jack Harkness, he too enthuses about how amazing Rose was. And when he does, you can tell: Martha Jones doesn’t feel like she can even hope to equal Rose.

That’s what Martha’s journey is all about: struggling to find her own worth as the successor to someone who accomplished great things (not the least of which was winning the Doctor’s hearts). When the Master dismisses her from his consideration and insults her abilities to the Doctor, he’s externalizing Martha’s biggest fears.

And what does she do then? She laughs. She laughs in the face of her tormentor, of her own personal fears personified, and then proceeds to calmly and with a smile explain how she’s foiled his plans. She’s outsmarted and tricked the Master, one of the cleverest minds in the universe. In the process, she shows just how wrong his opinion of her was — which in a way was also the Doctor’s opinion of her and her own opinion of herself. It’s an incredibly powerful moment, and I think it’s the real climax of her dramatic arc that season.

It’s so much more than just being more “genre-savvy” than the Master.

OMG. The first time that I watched through Martha’s season was when it aired, right after Rose was ripped from Tennant. And being a young kid, I still wasn’t over Rose’s exit from the show. So I dismissed Martha as the worst companion for the Doctor. But I’ve done my rewatches and I get excited every time I get to season 3, not just because my favorite villains are in it, but because I get to see Martha come out of nowhere and impress the pants off on not only the Master, but her family, Jack, and even the Doctor. Like holy shit, he can see all of time and space, but he glanced over Martha Jones, just because she wasn’t Rose and he didn’t see her importance because he was still mourning Rose.

tl;dr version: Martha wasn’t just overlooked by the Doctor (or even the characters in the show) but by the audience because of what we had been through with Rose
