Finished S3 of Doctor Who tonight. It had some moments of cheese, but overall I thought it was a very solid season finale. Enjoyed it muchly.

Martha remains my favorite companion for being so very SENSIBLE.

And Derek Jacobi and John Simm were just stellar in their guest roles. Comparing Simm with his role in Life on Mars... Wow! He is quite an actor!

Oh, and I didn't mention it at the time, but I also quite liked the episodes "Human Nature" and "Family of Blood". Excellent work from the baddies, and, of course, they have Jessica Hynes. I realized, watching them, that she's actually only middling-attractive when she has a serious expression. It's the way her face lights up when she smiles that makes her stunning.

We're on the same timeline - I finished season 3 on Monday night. I've got mixed feelings about Martha, & it's all about the writers, not the actress; I think she was very strong in the first episode or two, and in the finale again, but in between, they made her too starry-eyed.

Come to think of it though, I would say she was also quite strong in the "Human Nature/Family of Blood" two-parter. It is intriguing if her character is at her best when separated from the Doctor/when the Doctor is disabled in some way or other.
