Rose (1.1, 26.03.2005)

Written by Russell T Davies, directed by Keith Boak

The Doctor and Rose Tyler meet for the very first time and very soon it’s clear what it’s gonna be all about: Runnings! Read some quotes/lines from the transcripts here:

All of the dummies are now alive. Rose backs up away and trips over a box. She quickly pulls herself up again and backs against a wall. The dummy lifts its arm to strike her. Rose screws her face up ready for the blow, when a hand grabs hers. Rose opens her eyes and snaps her head to look at the owner of the hand.


They run, just in time, through a fire exit. The dummies are in pursuit. The Doctor leads her into a lift. The doors close on one of the dummy’s arms. The Doctor pulls it off and the doors close.

ROSE: You pulled his arm off!
THE DOCTOR: Yep! (tosses it to her) Plastic.
ROSE: Very clever, nice trick! Who were they then, students? Is this a student thing or what?
THE DOCTOR: Why would they be students?
ROSE: I don’t know…
THE DOCTOR: Well, you said it! Why students?
ROSE: ‘Cause… to get that many people dressed up and being silly… they gotta be students.
THE DOCTOR: That makes sense! Well done.
ROSE: Thanks.
THE DOCTOR: They’re not students.
ROSE: Whoever they are, when Wilson finds them, he’s gonna call the police.
THE DOCTOR: Who’s Wilson?
ROSE: Chief electrician.
THE DOCTOR: Wilson’s dead.
ROSE: That’s just not funny, that’s sick!
THE DOCTOR: Hold on! (pushes Rose to the side) Mind your eyes.
ROSE: I’ve had enough of this now!
ROSE: Who are you, then? Who’s that lot down there? I said, who are they?
THE DOCTOR: They’re made of plastic. Living plastic creatures. They’re being controlled by a relay device in the roof. Which would be a great big problem if I didn’t have this. (shows her an electronic device) So! (opens fire exit for Rose) I’m going to go up there and blow them up, and I might well die in the process. But don’t worry about me, no. Go home, go on! Go and have your lovely beans on toast. Don’t tell anyone about this, because if you do, you’ll get them killed. (He shuts the door. Rose turns away looking slightly bemused. It opens again.) I’m the Doctor, by the way, what’s your name?
ROSE: Rose.
THE DOCTOR: Nice to meet you, Rose. Run for your life. (He shuts the door again. Rose runs.)


Rose: An explosion abruptly ends Rose’s career as a sales girl…

… and she’s suddenly unemployed – what she only realises in 1.12 (Bad Wolf) whilst playing The Weakest Link ;-)


Rose: Jackie starts a flirt attack on the Doctor

Rose hears a rattling and stands up.

ROSE: Mum, you’re such a liar, I told you to nail that cat flap down. We’re going to get strays!
JACKIE: I did it weeks back!
ROSE: No, you thought about it!

Rose discovers that the screws have fallen out onto the floor. The cat flap moves violently. Rose leaps backwards, then comes back again and pokes the cat flap open gingerly. The Doctor’s face is right outside it. Rose gasps and opens the door.

THE DOCTOR: What’re you doing here?
ROSE: I live here.
THE DOCTOR: Well, what do you do that for?
ROSE: Because I do! And I’m only at home because someone blew up my job.

The Doctor gets out his sonic screwdriver.

THE DOCTOR: Must’ve got the wrong signal. You’re not plastic, are you (knocks on Rose’s forehead) No, bonehead. Bye, then!

He makes to go, but Rose pulls him back inside.

ROSE: You, inside. Right now.

She shuts the door.

JACKIE: Who is it?

Rose pokes her head into Jackie’s bedroom.

ROSE: It’s about last night, he’s part of the inquiry. Give us 10 minutes.
JACKIE: She deserves compensation.
THE DOCTOR: Huh, we’re talking millions.

The Doctor leans against the doorframe, waiting for Rose to come back. Jackie looks at him for a moment and stands up, flirtatiously.

JACKIE: I’m in my dressing gown.
THE DOCTOR: Yes, you are.
JACKIE: There’s a strange man in my bedroom.
THE DOCTOR: Yes, there is.
JACKIE: Well, anything could happen.

The Doctor walks off. Jackie pulls a face at his back.


Rose: Harmless… or armless?

ROSE: Don’t mind the mess. Do you want a coffee?
THE DOCTOR: Might as well, thanks! Just milk.

Rose goes into the kitchen and starts making coffee.

ROSE: We should go to the police. Seriously. Both of us.

The Doctor picks up a gossip magazine.

THE DOCTOR: That won’t last, he’s gay and she’s an alien.
ROSE: I’m not blaming you, even if it was just some sort of joke that went wrong.

The Doctor picks up a book and flicks through it.

THE DOCTOR: Sad ending.
ROSE: They said on the news they’d found a body.

The Doctor picks up an envelope and reads it.

THE DOCTOR: Rose Tyler. (looks in mirror) Ahh, could’ve been worse (prods his large ears) Look at me’ ears.
ROSE: All the same, he was nice. Nice bloke.

The Doctor shuffles a pack of cards.

THE DOCTOR: Luck be a lady!
ROSE: Well anyway if we are going to go to the police, I want to know what I’m saying.

The Doctor shuffles the cards again and manages to make them all go flying.

ROSE: I want you to explain everything.
THE DOCTOR (off the cards): Maybe not. (hears scuffling from behind sofa) What’s that then? You got a cat?

The Doctor leans behind the sofa and the dummy’s arm leaps out and grabs him by the neck.

ROSE (wandering in with coffee): We did have, but there’s these strays, they come in off the estate…

Behind her, the Doctor is being strangled viciously by the hand while he tries vainly to fight it off. She does not quite seem to register that the Doctor is being harassed by a rubber hand.

ROSE: I told Mickey to chuck that out…

She puts the coffee down on the table.

ROSE: Honestly, give a man a plastic hand… anyway, I don’t even know your name, Doctor… what was it?

The Doctor throws the hand off and it flies across the room attaching itself to Rose’s face. She screams and the Doctor leaps up and tries to pull it off. Jackie is drying her hair, completely oblivious. The Doctor and Rose crash onto the coffee table, breaking it, and roll onto the floor. The Doctor pushes her back onto the sofa and gets out his sonic screwdriver, disabling the hand.

THE DOCTOR: It’s alright, I’ve stopped it. There you go, you see? (tosses it to her) ‘Armless.
ROSE: Do you think?

She uses it to whack him on the shoulder.



Rose: I can feel the turn of the Earth!

The Doctor explains who he is and leaves a confused Rose behind, vanishing with the TARDIS

ROSE: Who are you?
THE DOCTOR: I told you! The Doctor.
ROSE: Yeah. But Doctor what?
THE DOCTOR: Just the Doctor.
ROSE: The Doctor.
ROSE: Is that supposed to sound impressive?
THE DOCTOR: Sort of.
ROSE: Come on. You can tell me. I’ve seen enough. Are you the police?
THE DOCTOR: No. I was just passing through. I’m a long way from home.
ROSE: But what have I done wrong? How comes those plastic things keep coming after me?
THE DOCTOR: Oh! Suddenly the entire world revolves around you! You were just an accident, you got in the way, that’s all.
ROSE: It tried to kill me!
THE DOCTOR: It was after me, not you! Last night, in the shop, I was there, you blundered it. Almost ruined the whole thing. This morning, I was tracking it down, it was tracking me down… the only reason it fixed on you is that you met me.
ROSE: So, what you’re saying is, the entire world revolves around you.
THE DOCTOR: Sort of, yeah.
ROSE: You’re full of it!
THE DOCTOR: Sort of, yeah.
ROSE: But, all this plastic stuff – who else knows about it?
ROSE: What, you’re on your own?
THE DOCTOR: Well, who else is there? I mean, you lot, all you do is eat chips, go to bed, and watch telly! When all the time, underneath you, there’s a war going on!

Rose takes the arm off him.

ROSE: Okay, start from the beginning.– If you’re gonna go with this living plastic, and I don’t even believe that, but if we do… how did you kill it?
THE DOCTOR: The thing controlling it projects life into the arm. I cut off the signal, dead.
ROSE: So that’s radio control?
THE DOCTOR: Thought control. (silence) Are you alright?
ROSE: Yeah. So, who’s controlling it, then?
THE DOCTOR: Long story.
ROSE: But what’s it all for? I mean, shop window dummies… what’s that about? Is someone trying to take over Britain’s shops?

They laugh.

ROSE: I know.
THE DOCTOR: It’s not a price war. (laugh again – suddenly serious) They want to overthrow the human race and destroy you. Do you believe me?
THE DOCTOR: But you’re still listening.

She stops. The Doctor walks on.

ROSE: Really though, Doctor. Tell me – who are you?
THE DOCTOR (stops): Do you know like we were saying? About the Earth revolving? (walks back to her) It’s like when you were a kid. The first time they tell you the world’s turning and you just can’t quite believe it because everything looks like it’s standing still. I can feel it. (takes her hand) The turn of the Earth. The ground beneath our feet is spinning at a thousand miles an hour, and the entire planet is hurtling around the sun at sixty-seven thousand miles an hour, and I can feel it. We’re falling through space, you and me. Clinging to the skin of this tiny little world, and if we let go… (lets go of her hand) That’s who I am. Now, forget me, Rose Tyler. (takes the arm, waves it in her face) Go home.

He walks away. Rose watches his retreating back and then starts to walk herself. The Doctor steps into a police box. Rose hears the sound of the TARDIS departing. She runs back as fast as she can. The police box is gone. She shields her eyes from the sun, looks around her, then walks away again.

Short sequences from series 1 (The Doctor Dances) and series 4 (The Poison Sky). Actually… me, as a German bird born in the late sixties, sometimes gets a little bored, angry, annoyed… over all those retrospections on World War I and II. And even the Doctor himself didn’t want to do “the nostalgia tour” (Season 4, The Journey’s End). But alright… it’s part of history. As well as to the British people… as even more to mine. Gotta deal with it, though I wasn’t even born then. That’s no excuse. Only an explanation. And there just must be an end of hate, some time. Hasn’t to be friendship and love… just peace.)
