“I met the Doctor once,“ Toshiko said. ”He left quite the impression. How is it to travel with him?”

Martha grinned. ”It's a rush. He can take you wherever you want to go, he's incredible ...” Martha's face darkened suddenly.

Toshiko graced her with a sad smile. ”That look … Jack has the same expression when he talks about him.”

”It's so easy to fall for him, but he can't return those feelings. There's someone else, another companion, and even if there wasn't … he's like the moon. Beautiful, bright ...” Martha's eyes found Toshiko's. ”... and out of reach.”

Thank you. Yeah, I always feel bad for them. The Doctor doesn't mean to do it, but he's pretty much very ignorant. :)

Like the moon, yes, except that everyone else orbits around him. He draws them in, but they can never really get close.
