Martin Freeman is a Hedgehog Meme
This seems to have been a response to the "Otters Who Look Like Benedict Cumberbatch" meme.
On twitter, Martin's partner Amanda Abbington acknowledged this phenomenon
- fan to to @amandaabbington: is Martin aware that some sites online show pictures comparing him to hedgehogs ? X
- reply from @amandaabbington: oh God, yes.
- fan to @amandaabbington: Well, that response warrents a follow-up question: how does he feel about it?
- reply from @amandaabbington: He laughs, he cries and then rolls himself into a little prickly ball and hibernates for the winter. 
In fanon, the hedgehog's name is "Jawn" (meant to be a weird spelling of "John", as in Watson). In the first Hobbit film, when Radagast's hedgehog is hurt, cohorts of fangirls whispered "nooooo, Jawn!"
