Recced because: This is the first "1969" fic I read, sinking into the details of the months that Martha and the Doctor spent waiting for the events of "Blink" to come together and bring the TARDIS back to them. It has a perfect Martha voice- sensible and smart and still a bit starry-eyed about the Doctor, as together they embrace the Earth-bound flip-side of the TARDIS lifestyle- helping people and solving the small-scale problems that come with living on a shopgirl's income in London 1969.
