Novel writers comment on Martha Jones

I'm *finally* (after having it in the house for four days !) reading the newest DWM (#390) and I thought folks here might be interested in some comments from the authors of the new Ten/Martha novels (out on Dec 26):

Trevor Baxendale (Wishing Well) says that he visited BBC Wales last year for the screening of the first few episodes of Season 3, and in terms of "dialogue and characterisation that was a real help with Martha".

Simon Guerrier (The Pirate Loop) notes that he talked to Joe Lidster more than anyone else - Joe was responsible for writing Martha Jones' MySpace Blog for the BBC. "He provided some very useful notes about Martha's character. And Joe, bless him, put a reference to badger[-faced] pirates in one of her later blogs. So I put a reference to her MySpace page into my book!"

I saved the best until last!

James Swallow (Peacemaker) says "I really like Martha, late-season Martha especially; a competent, capable companion makes a great foil for the Doctor. [He then talks about the Tenth Doctor and DT before continuing] I've always felt Doctor Who works best when the sci-fi story is reflected off the human story of the Doctor and his friends. The Tenth Doctor and Martha dynamic is very different from other pairings I've written - like the Fifth Doctor and Turlough in Singularity or the Eighth Doctor and Charley in Destination Prague."

Icon Drabble Meme

This little meme was started on a different comm, but it goes something like this: Take a look at your default userpic. If you're like me you see it so often you've almost stopped seeing it at all, so take a good look at it.

Now, using your avatar as inspiration, write a drabble.


My default icon inspired a drabble in Japanese, but I ended up writing a second one, slightly longer than a drabble, and featuring Martha and the Doctor, based off this icon here:



(That's a kappa, a creature in Japanese folklore that lives in rivers and streams, eats cows and occasionally people, and loves cucumbers.)

Read my little ficlet (Gen, rated PG) here:
( 'Martha,' the Doctor said, not taking his eyes off the water, 'Did you say *cucumber* sandwiches?'" )

Feedback is loved & appreciated :) Enjoy!

'Hello again,' the Doctor greets the coral, the younger TARDIS, stroking her. His brow then furrows, as she transmits a feeling to him. On the edges of his mind, Jack can sense what she's telling him.
