He finds another companion quickly enough. Has a few adventures, she does the job just about right. He isn't alone and that should be enough.
He thinks about when he turned into a human, back in 1913. Thinks about the Doctor-shaped hole he left behind. With another companion so quickly on board, there's no Martha-shaped hole left. It's been stretched and shifted and easily filled.
It feels wrong. Feels like he should miss her more. That he should be able to tell she isn't there. He doesn't want to simply replace her.
Not that he's truly afraid that he will.
