Just Who is Jo Martin’s “Ruth, Fugitive of the Judoon,” to the Doctor?
This weekend’s Doctor Who was certainly a trip! Not only did those mercenary rhinoceros space police, the Judoon, put in a return appearance, but Torchwood’s Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) returned with a dire warning for the Doctor — but she was busy elsewhere, trying to save a woman named Ruth (Jo Martin).
