Other Guides to this Story
The ninth Doctor wears a leather jacket and has short hair and big ears. He has a love of life, as well as a sadness about him. His home planet of Gallifrey was destroyed in a war.
Rose Tyler is a 19-year old girl from London c.2005. In Rose (Series 1), she was working in Henrik's department store when the ninth Doctor was investigating Auton activity in the store, and blew it up. In the events that followed this, Rose helped the Doctor defeat the Nestene Consciousness's attempt to take over the world, and he offered her a chance to travel in the TARDIS, leaving behind her mum, Jackie, and boyfriend Mickey. In The End of the World (Series 1), the Doctor took her to the far future to see the day the Earth is destroyed. During this trip, he upgraded her mobile phone, tying it into the TARDIS, so that she can call home no matter where or when she is.
Recurring and Historical Characters
Jackie Tyler is Rose Tyler's mother. She cares very deeply for her daughter, and is very protective of her. She met the Doctor in Rose (series 1), and again in Aliens of London / World War Three (series 1), where she disliked him.
Mickey Smith was Rose's boyfriend in Rose (series 1). He stuck with her in Aliens of London / World War Three (series 1), and in that story, the Doctor offered him a place on the TARDIS, which he refused, knowing that he probably couldn't cope with it.
Rose's relationships with Jackie and Mickey were introduced in Rose, and expanded on in Aliens of London and World War Three
