I am partial to Martha more so than Donna. The reason is probably because Martha was proof that it is possible to write a female character that falls in love while she doesn’t sacrifice her autonomy and her ability to kick ass. I mean, Martha traveled the Earth being a mighty bad ass to save the planet! And how many times does she wield guns and plots escapes, etc. And in the end, she decided that her love for the Doctor was detrimental to her self development and left. Those are the reasons I love her above the other companions (though Donna comes in a close second).
