It’s just a brilliantly acted moment on Freema’s part. You can just see all the emotions as she’s finally confronted with Rose, who she had heard so much about (indirectly of course, the Doctor didn’t talk about her because he doesn’t talk about anything important but there was a certain look, a certain tightness around his mouth and clenching fist that she knew meant something has reminded him of Rose.) There’s that tiny part of her that’s always going to be in love with the Doctor (because that’s what humans do, we give away little pieces of our heart to people we love and we never get it all back. so even though she’s moved on and accepted everything that happened, she still remembers that feeling), and she’s finally faced with the reality of Rose, the actual person, flaws and all, not the memories that haunted the Doctor. And she’s happy for him and shocked and just….i love that moment. Rose introduces herself, not expecting Martha to know who she is and Martha knows exactly who she is and it’s a good moment.
(my meta about this is not well written, sorry, not on my game this afternoon and i haven’t watched this scene in a while)

“Ooh, brilliant, it has been years since I’ve spent the night in a dark and foreboding dungeon. Nothing quite like it.”
“Yeah, brilliant,” Rose says through chattering teeth, running her hands up and down her bare arms.
The Doctor’s smile fades and he takes off his coat, wrapping it around Rose’s shoulders. She snuggles into it and they both plop on to the concrete floor.
“I’m sorry, Rose. Honestly, I had no idea that neck kissing was illegal here. Not exactly something I’ve done a lot.”
“I know, Doctor, it’s fine.”
