THIS IS WHY DONNA’S STORY IS SO TRAGIC BECAUSE SHE GOES FROM THINKING SHE IS NOTHING, TO REALIZING THAT SHE IS IMPORTANT AND SHE DOES MATTER. SHE SAVES THE UNIVERSE WITH THOSE ‘TEMP SKILLS’ THAT SHE DEEMED UNIMPORTANT AT THE START OF THE SERIES. AND WHEN THE DOCTOR WIPES HER MIND, SHE KNOW HOW MUCH SHE WILL LOSE, HOW SHE WILL GO BACK TO THINKING OF HERSELF AS INSIGNIFICANT AND UNIMPORTANT. I THINK SHE WOULD HAVE RATHER DIED THAN LET THAT HAPPEN, BUT THE DOCTOR TAKES THE CHOICE AWAY FROM HER BECAUSE HE SAVES PEOPLE THAT’S WHAT HE DOES. AND I THINK THAT BREAKS HIS HEARTS.
