you do realize she's not just gonna morph into rose if you pretend hard enough right buddy?  
The Doctor didn't offer [Martha] a choice between every food in the world (actually, for some reason he keeps trying to feed [her] chips – healthy way to go, Doctor!), what he said to [her] was, "Where would you like to go now? I can take you anywhere! Anywhere at all!"

[...]

The Doctor raised an eyebrow. "Hungry? I can offer you a thirty course banquet in Imperial Japan, a kronkburger on Reblais Beta, dehydrated protein tablets on a shuttle to Mars – or there’s always chips, nice little chippie in south London. . ."

Oh wow!

I've got all the Rose books (thank you half.com!) and once I finish those (I read them slow on purpose because I'll cry when there are none left) I'll definitely be getting all the others. Even 11. But I'm going to miss Rose so much AGAIN when new companions pop up in the books. I don't like Amy at all so I'll have to just scan over all her blabber in the 11 books.

It's nice to see that at least in a Martha book we'll get a reference.

I am the exact same way! I have only finished 3 of them because when I do....thats it... There is also a hardback comic type book with lots of short stories with Rose. HUGE ship in that! So cute!
Meadows flockofgulls on June 22nd, 2012 03:39 am (UTC)
What is this hardback comic? I would totally track a used copy down of that! I just started reading The Deviant Strain right now - I THINK that is the 4th book so we are at the same place most likely! The last one I read was the one about the killer video game.

It's so wonderful to have these books - it's as if they never were parted and the journey of them together just continues!!!
Kali _thirty2flavors on June 22nd, 2012 04:08 pm (UTC)
I think it's the 2007 Storybook. It's quite big (tall/long) but pretty thin and it is hardback and has about ten short stories in it with illustrations. You can get it (and the other storybooks) for very cheap on Amazon.
Meadows flockofgulls on June 22nd, 2012 04:18 pm (UTC)
I SAW that from a used book seller on Amazon for really cheap and was wondering if that was what it was. The description was really lacking but Rose and 10 were on the cover and there was a year on it. I have to go back and see if that seller still has it because I was going to buy the first two Martha books from the same person. Thanks!!

I swear some of those writers are bigger shippers than we are, lol

Oh, Doctor. He tries so hard to hide his feelings but GOD is he rubbish at it. Poor Martha. She was awesome and any other time she would've made a great Companion, but right after Rose? Man, those were some shoes to fill. I can't believe she lasted as long as she did.

I just wish we'd seen Rose's complimentary conversation when Mickey suggests chips and she swears off them forever because she can't stop thinking about her and the Doctor's first date.
Kali: dw :: doctors :: bringing you back _thirty2flavors on June 22nd, 2012 04:05 am (UTC)
Yeah it's too bad really because the sad thing is that Martha was precisely what Ten needed in s3. She just wasn't ever appreciated for it as she should've been. Aw, Martha.
doctahr: Bahahaha doctahr on October 7th, 2012 12:21 am (UTC)
And these are some of my favorite moments bc A. Ten's a dork, which is kinda funny, but also it shows that he as kind of a jerk to her sometimes, in terms of appreciation, and Martha was right to get out.
(Also it pleases my shipper heart when he mentions Rose)

Someone should fly around the universe handing out medals to all the people who had to deal with the Doctor post-Rose.

And I imagine that Martha would get a trophy. Or maybe a statue...
jls589 jls589 on June 22nd, 2012 04:26 am (UTC)
Oh totally. I bet he was even more annoying than what we saw. I didn't like Martha at first but as I got to see her shine, I really loved her. Martha got the short end of the stick and still came up classy and awesome. Donna never had it that hard.
Kali: eng :: like shakespeare and verse _thirty2flavors on June 22nd, 2012 04:05 pm (UTC)
I love Donna Noble but I always roll my eyes a bit when people are like "Donna should've just stayed after TRB!!" because L O L like Donna Noble would've put up with s3 Ten for more than a day. He was lucky he found someone with Martha's unending patience and fondness for fixer-uppers.

A very large statue. Made out of gold. In the middle of London.
ABadPlanWellExecuted abadplanwellex on June 22nd, 2012 08:38 pm (UTC)
Absolutely! Lol!
Katie: doctor/rose kh1369 on June 22nd, 2012 04:45 am (UTC)
As an American, I just like that Doctor Who has officially changed my view of "chips." I'd known about the whole fries > chips > crisps situation, but now I default to wanting fries when I see chips instead of potato chips/crisps. Horray, fun with British/American English translation!

Also, lols, Doctor Who books. I can't help thinking how the plotlines would evolve differently if they were fic.
ABadPlanWellExecuted abadplanwellex on June 22nd, 2012 04:51 am (UTC)
LOL! I made french fries the other night at dinner and called them "chips" by accident, to my husband's great confusion.

I love that book. Martha makes the best narrator.

Edited for spelling fail. I'm going to sleep now.

Oh Martha... Poor you. How did you ever put up with him for so long?

I think I would have dropped him off with a therapist...
Kali: dw :: doctors :: rubbish as a human _thirty2flavors on June 22nd, 2012 04:14 pm (UTC)
LOL I mean at least in this scenario Martha probably wouldn't know he keeps trying to feed her chips in the hopes she'll turn into Rose magically.

But in general yeah lolol, poor Martha.
fogsblue: martha fogsblue on June 22nd, 2012 04:39 pm (UTC)
Kinda imagine the slap Martha gave him in FoB would feel like nothing compared to the one he'd get if she found out why he kept suggesting chips...
Rosie: David will miss Billie rosie_not_rose on June 22nd, 2012 09:53 am (UTC)
LOL Jaqueline Rayner, ever the Doctor/Rose shipper. :D
Mara superioritea on June 22nd, 2012 12:13 pm (UTC)
I was going to say the same lol... Stone Rose anyone?
doctahr: Nine sans jacket doctahr on October 7th, 2012 12:28 am (UTC)
Ah. If only that book was an episode.

Jaqueline Rayner should write some TenII/Rose books next.

WOULDN'T THAT BE AMAZING?
