Ep. 005 Martha My Dear

Martha! Martha! Martha! Join us as we celebrate the VERY FIRST POC COMPANION. Martha Jones was a big deal for us women of color, and frankly we are sick and tired of the hate directed at her. She was amazing. Not “not-Rose”, not “eh”, not “rubs me the wrong way” or any of these other coded excuses not to like her. AMAZING. End of story.
