Martha Jones: The Woman Who Walked The Earth.
We were assigned to make our own posters in one of our classes. It could be about anything - and when someone gives me that option; the first thing that comes to my mind is Doctor Who, lol.
At first I wanted to do a poster with Rose Tyler, or one with Rose and the Doctor, but then I decided to do Martha Jones instead - because I feel like she is the most under-appreciated companion in all of Who, or at least in New Who. She was a bamf, but people don’t see that. They only see her as “that girl who had a crush on the Doctor but was rejected because he loved Rose the most”. But she’s not the clingy character they make her out to be. She’s a really smart character, she’s a strong and independent woman who knows exactly what she believes in. She’s responsible and brave as fuck. It’s a shame that no one will remember the year she saved the world - which is why I made her a poster for the year everyone seems to forget about - to remind you all of the year Martha Jones walked the earth and defeated the Master’s evil plans.
Martha is beautiful like a Godess, yet brave as a warrior; hence the outfit (inspired by a mix of ancient rome and ancient greece). The Master is a big but faded part of the poster, because he’s the evil mastermind in this story, but it’s not his story - it’s Martha’s.
Then we have the Toclafanes which everyone seem to forget about. Maybe they weren’t the most impressive aliens, but they were pretty brutal (or at least they were in my opinion) - and their design is kind of cool too, hahah. (:
The paper in her hand symbolises the story she spread to everyone, the story about the Doctor, and the key in her other hand is the only thing she had to defend herself with.
A woman, a key and a story.
