Composition on Martin (first attempt) February 23, 2007

Posted by bennifo in Characters, Martin.

Martin is a famous moderator of a top rated morning show in the UK,which is called “Breakfast with Penny and Martin”.He is a middle-aged man,who has two girls.Martin seems to be somekind of a typical businessman,which always wears some nice clothing and which is very proud of his outward appearance.He does not live together with his children and he could not imagine that his ex-wife Cindy let him see them again.Martin now lives in a little villagey part of Islington,which is a area that lots of celebrities and other rich people choose to live.Because of his abounding experience as a TV-moderator,Martin is a very good speaker.He knows exactly how to talk to the different kinds of people.You can see that he talks to Jess in a slangy way and to Maureen in a total different exalted speech.You can also see that he has different relations to the other characters.Martin seems to be like a father for Jess,because she is the youngest person in this special-gang.But he is also very rude to Jess because he wants to protect her from her wish to die. In Martin`s eyes Jess` reason for suicide is not wicked and so he wants to give her the chance to live and to find another boyfriend.In my opinion Martin has a special relation to Maureen, because she has got  characteristics ,which he misses in his life. He also feels with Maureen, because she is in a very bad situation. But I think you can not  talk of love between them, because Maureen is to old for Martin. Up to that point you can not see any relation between Martin and JJ. I think they can not  take up with another, because of their age difference and their different interests. But important is that they accept and respect each other.

Martin has made a lot of big mistakes in his life. His biggest mistake was that he had a sexual intercourse with a fifteen-year-old girl. He did not know that she was only fifteen, because she told him ,that she was eighteen. After that Martin lost his job, his wife, his children and he went to prison.After that it seems that nobody likes him anymore and that everybody who knows him abuses him. These are the reasons why he wants to end up his life and pay the price for what he has done.

Now being out of prison Martin “started” an affair with his former assistant Penny Chambers.
