mad man with blue box

Doktor: The life out there, it dazzles. I mean, it blinds you to the things that are important. I've seen it devour relationships and plans... It's meant to do that. Because for one person to have seen all that, to taste the glory and then go back, it will tear you apart.

3x13 Last of the Time Lords

Top Ten: Martha Jones is Flawless
8. Last of the Time Lords (3x13)

There are very few people who can keep the Doctor in line and even fewer for whom the Doctor will even answer the phone for. Amy and Rory had to draw his name in crop to get his attention and even River had to carve messages in sacred objects to get him to go where she wanted him. However, there have only been two people in all of Who history who could get the Doctor to answer his phone: the Brigadier and Martha Jones. Considering the former was the UNIT founder, what does this say about Martha? When Martha gives the Doctor the phone, she knows he will answer. After all, she walked the world and single-handedly saved the universe. She knows she’s strong, brave and absolutely flawless. If Martha Jones calls, you better come running.
