I guess I will reblog this old drawing every October until I hate it too much to even look at it.

I decided to make this post after a morning watching Freema’s first episode of Confidential. I am a huge fan of Freema and Martha is my favourite companion by miles. I didn’t watch it with the intention of getting this fired up, but I found myself stunned by the difference of approach I was seeing as I watched.
Moffat’s era of Who is far too sexist, heteronormative and non-inclusive to be particularly enjoyable to me, but it really struck me, watching RTD and his team talk about Martha with such love and excitement, that the role of the companion really has changed since RTD left.
I feel the companion has become too much of a side-kick, too much of an accessory, as opposed to the main character, our gateway into the Doctor’s magical world, our link with the beauty and potential of humanity even in the most awful situations.
I realise not everyone will agree with me, and I’m not saying you have to, but I’ve collected some quotes together to emphasise what I think is the toxic difference in the approach of each showrunner in their writing and presenting of the companion, and why we have such an issue with women in Doctor Who at the moment.
Interesting take on the latest seasons of Doctor Who.

Image description: The National Museum of American History recently received a donation of more than 20 Jim Henson puppets and props from the Henson family.
The Museum’s conservation lab had to work on the puppets to get them ready for the donation ceremony. Some of the puppets are the originals and the materials used in their original creation were not meant to last for decades.
