The ninth Doctor has been mentally scarred by the part he played in the Time War and the destruction of his home planet. Although he clearly has a love of life, he also has an innate sadness about him.
Rose Tyler is a 19-year old girl from London 2005. Before meeting the Doctor Rose lived with her mother, Jackie Tyler, on a council estate and had a boyfriend called Mickey Smith. Her father, Pete Tyler, died when she was a baby.
In Rose she worked in Henrik's department store when the ninth Doctor was investigating Auton activity in the store, and she saw him blow it up. Rose then 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.
In The End of the World the Doctor upgraded her mobile phone, tying it into the TARDIS so that she can call home no matter where or when she is.
