  • "Nice to meet you Rose, now run for your life"

    After a long absences from our screen the science fiction classic series Doctor Who finally returns. We are introduced to Rose a very normal girl with an average life and boring job. Nothing exciting seems to happens to her. Until one day she is attacked by mannequins and is rescued by a mysterious man who calls himself The Doctor. With the new series comes a new Doctor. The latest regeneration is the ninth played by Christopher Eccleston. Ecclestons Doctor is fantastically manic loveable goof who shows some streaks of anger. He is also very disconnected from humanity. Billie Piper makes strong impression as companion to be Rose, who manages hold her own and rescue the doctor at the end.

    This story brings back the Autons from the classic series. They are a pretty interesting villain. Who works best whem taking something so normal and average like a mannequin and making it sinister. But this story is flawed. It gets a little too silly in some parts the attacking wheelie bin for example. Overall Rose is an average episode of Doctor Who. It is let down by a thin plot and over the top silliness. But is redeemed by the charismatic performances and on screen chemistry of Eccleston and Piper.
