DONNA NOBLE → I just want you to know, there are worlds out there, safe in the sky because of her. That there are people living in the light, and singing songs of Donna Noble. A thousand, million light years away. They will never forget her — while she can never remember. … But for one moment… one shining moment… she was the most important woman in the whole wide universe.
“You’re not gonna make the world any better by shouting at it!”
I flipping LOVE Donna Noble. The thing about Doctor Who that is (for me) the best part is, well, the Doctor, of course, but secondly it’s the companions and their ordinariness. And the point of the show being that ordinary humans are important and spectacular and wonderful. And insecure. Donna’s ending smashed my heart into little tiny pieces.
I hope that Oswin or Clara or whatever her name is manages to bring some real proper human insecurity to her role. The whole “Is there a word for total screaming genius, that sounds modest and a tiny bit sexy?” bit has me worrying that she’s going to be a River Song clone, and totally unrelatable. Fingers crossed!
