Freema Wins!

Yes, I know. She didn't win that NTA thing. But she so wins. She imbued the character of Martha Jones with warmth, intelligence, grace, and enormous courage for thirteen episodes -- and she is continuing to do so (maybe even as I type!) in season 4 of Doctor Who and in Torchwood. (Oh, yeah. And she's wicked hot. Just to state the obvious.)

So let's hear it for Freema!

martha poll of crack (for great justice!)

I will admit this poll is on crack. But I thought I might post it anyway, because I'm actually curious as to people's answers. It all comes of listening to a certain album from my youth and thinking, "huh, this song's kind of post-LOTTL Martha. So's this one too. Weird."

Poll #1081313 you ought to know: a martha jones poll full of crack

In honor of Martha Jones being just about old enough to have bought Jagged Little Pill (and listened to it repeatedly), the question I pose to you is this: which songs off that album best describe Miss Jones and/or her relationship with the good Doctor?

All I Really Want (and all I need now is intellectual intercourse: a soul to did the hole much deeper; and I have no concept of time other than it is flying)
You Oughta Know (it's not fair to deny me of the cross I bear which you gave to me)
Perfect (we'll love you just the way you are if you're perfect)
Hand In My Pocket (and what it all comes down to is that I haven't got it all figured out just yet, but I've got one hand in my pocket and the other giving the peace sign)
Right Through You (your shake is like a fish; you pat me on the head; you took me out to wine dine 69 me but didn't hear a damn word I said)
Forgiven (what I learned I rejected but I believe again; I will suffer the consequence of this inquisition; if I jump in this fountain will I be forgiven)
You Learn (you live, you learn; you love, you learn; you cry, you learn)
Head Over Feet (you've already won me over, in spite of me, so don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet)
Mary Jane (you're the sweet crusader and you're on your way; you're the last great innocent and that's why I love you)
Ironic (and life has a funny way of helping you out when you think everything's gone wrong and everything blows up in your face)
Not The Doctor (I don't want to be the filler if the void is solely yours, I don't want to be your glass of single malt whiskey hidden in the bottom drawer)
Wake Up (There's an underestimated and impatient little girl raising her hand)
Hidden A Cappella Bonus Track: Your House (so forgive me love, if I cry in your shower; so forgive me love, if there's salt in your bed)
WTF? Biichan is on crack and showing her age. Who is this Alanis Morissette person anyway?
Ticky boxes! Made out of ticky-tacky!

I am fully aware that I am a total geek to view the contents of an entire album as songs for Martha and an even greater geek in my choice of album. The only thing I can say in my defense was that I was thirteen when the album came out and part of me is still thirteen when I hear it. So there.
