David Tennant’s Video Diary: Billie’s Farewell Scene.
#The only thing worse than Doomsday #is this #And the third gif is slowly killing me because that face is the beginning of the Oncoming Storm #Someone he loves has been taken #and there’s no way of getting them back #It doesn’t matter if it’s the Doctor or if it’s David Tennant #it’s the same hopeless grief (via wholet)

Top Ten: Martha Jones is Flawless
2. Journey’s End (4x13)
The moment is easily one of my favourites ever, not just for Martha but in the whole Doctor Who series. Martha was in love with the Doctor, but when she shows up to help save the world and sees Rose, she’s just happy for them. No jealousy, no cattiness, just ‘oh my god, he found you,’ because Martha Jones is strong and so infinitely classy. After everything that she went through, after all the heartbreak, feeling like she was second-best, the year that never was - after all these things, Martha is just completely happy for him. To me, the amazingness of this scene was nothing to do with Doctor/Rose and everything to do with Martha Jones being one of the classiest and most flawless characters in Who history. It must have hurt her to see them together but she’s not jealous - she’s simply glad they found each other. Not many people are so wonderfully selfless and empathetic.
- It’s always you and her, isn’t it… long after the rest of us have gone. A boy and his box off to see the universe.
- Well, you say that as if it’s a bad thing. But honestly, it’s the best thing there is.
#i do appreciate this growth arc though. ten never wanted - never could - leave any of the people he invited on board. in a way he wasn’t emotionally mature or strong enough. of course he let every one of them go in the end when it became clear that staying in the TARDIS with him was no longer an option… but never willingly. oh-so-human ten NEEDED them. and it’s not that eleven doesn’t need amy… but he understands now the cost of not letting her go. he has seen rose disappear into another world. he has left martha a family shattered by the memories they have of a world he broke in the first place. and he had to effectively kill his best friend - donna and her fighting spirit and the light of adventure in her eyes and her memories of their time together. he kept amy with him through so much. he got stuck into her and rory’s lives but finally - finally he realises that he has to STOP. that he has to let her grow up. to let her be safe. and as much as eleven makes this about amy growing up… it’s about eleven growing up too. he has played at being the raggedy doctor and amy’s hero long enough. for the first time in a long long time he chooses to say goodbye. ugh all the feelings in every universe there is.
David Tennant. Yum.
