her ignoring ten in TIL, ditching him to go and investigate magpie without even telling him- because she had a hunch, and she was right.
The Satan Pit- the doctor his trapped ten miles down but she doesn’t mope about, she motivates the entire team in ways she knows they will respond to, even putting her life on the line to stop toby from being shot.
Fear Her- my girl literally saves the entire planet while the doctor is helpless. i doesn’t get much better than that.
