I wasn't even looking for anything metatastic...

The things one finds whilst randomly trawling LJ.

So, I got linked to a post from a week or so about why people don't like female characters, and over in the comments popped up this rather interesting comment:

"As near as I can tell, Martha Jones is the female Watson to The Doctor's Holmes."

Which made me go huh. And was a comment I found rather interesting.

And not just in terms of character similarities, though those certainly exist. I was thinking more of the tendency to be what the TV Tropes Wiki calls "The Krillin" aka being overlooked for being quietly competent when in a world full of OTT characters.

...Yeah, this isn't just because I am reading something about Sherlock Holmes right now, I swear.

To tag as meta or not to tag, that is the question...
