Just interested in the forum's opinion on Sonia and Martin, and the storylines which centered around them (the whole lesbian fiasco, Martin being stabbed etc)

The Martin and Sarah plot was really good, I wished they had continued it. I didn't mind Sonia, but turning her into a bisexual and having a very repetivie plot where her and Pauline would argue got really tiresome and by the end I was glad to see them leave.

I wouldn't be against a return for Martin and Rebecca, they could even recast them and I wouldn't mind.

I stopped watching EE when they left. I really enjoyed their stories in the end. Their whole history together was really interesting. I thought the stalker storyline was a bit of a let down but when they found 'Chloe' i.e. Rebecca I thought it was brilliant. I really used to love Martin at that point because he became a right good little Dad. I haven't watched it since but I know Sonia returned at one point so I guess they since split up off screen and Martin got Rebecca.

I liked Sonia but Martin was a bit boring. I never took to them as a couple but I enjoyed Sonia's feuding with Pauline.

I liked that crazy girl trying to ruin everything but the rest was dire.

They became very tiresome towards the end and the whole Sonia/Naomi lesbian storyline was dire. It was nice that they got a happy ending though reuniting after their divorce and leaving with Rebecca happily. It was such a shame when Sonia returned for 1 episode they had her mention they'd split up as Martin had had an affair. It was unnecessary as it didn't even lead to Sonia returning full time she was only back for one episode they could easily have explained his absence.

They had her previosuly say she had married problems just so she'd jump in Phil Mitchells bed, it was very bizarre.

I can't say I ever liked them together and this is coming from someone who liked them as individual characters.

Sonia Jackson, for example was one of the rare few teenagers who had a good head on her shoulders. She was ambitious, strong willed and had an opinion. Where there was a Zoe Slater, there was a Sonia Jackson. She also stood up to bullys like Phil Mitchell, and for that, she'll always score brownie points for me.

It was the point where EE paired her up with Martin that the character drastically lost it's appeal. For one, she was totally mismatched with Martin. Even if I could forget that he got her pregnant at 15, treated her like dirt and then killed the true love of her life (Jamie), I really did think, as a pair they had zero chemistry. Actually, Sonia had zero chemistry with the Fowlers, full stop. Her hostile relationship with her mother-in-law, Pauline didn't make great TV. Pauline was also a character who was suffering at the time.

I also found during this time, Sonia became a stuck up snob. While Sonia always wanted more out of life and didn't want to settle for having a stall at the market (nothing wrong with that), she developed this superiority complex, which only intensified when she met Niaomi. I loathed how she treated her husband, looked down on him for selling fruit, yet it was good enough for her when she married him. Her affair with Niaomi was also tedious. I never had anything good to say about the "getting Chloe/Rebecca back" plot either. It had plot holes from start to finish.

The best of Sonia and Martin was when Sarah the stalker came into thier lives. That's it really.

Sonia for me was always at her peak with Jamie and she had good chemistry with the Mitchells and Brannings. It was when she became a Fowler she went down hill.

I liked them although turning Sonia into a bisexual was silly. The plot with that mad woman (sarah was it?) was good.

I didn't like either and found she was an unbelievably bad actress: over dramatic, exagerated, her crying scenes made me cringe.

I have not missed them!

Bored me to tears tbh.

Today's young cast get a lot of stick around here, but i think the likes of Lola and Lauren are infinantly more watchable than the likes of Sonia.

I didn't mind Martin, but Sonia bored me to tears. And her week-long lesbianism was laughable

Martin was actually a decent character and probably would have fared better if he wasn't paired up with the dreadful Sonia. I quite liked his, albeit brief, relationship with Carly Wicks. But his marriage to Sonia was just relentless misery.
