Rose Tyler

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 Characters: Adam Mitchell Adam is a self-proclaimed genius, who the Doctor and Rose met in Dalek (Series 1). In that story, he was working for an organisation that collected alien artefacts. At the end of that story, Rose begged the Doctor to let him join them onboard the TARDIS.
Recommended Viewing: It is probably worth having seen Dalek (Series 1) to see something of Adam's background.
Recommended Reading: None.
Recommended Listening: None.
