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. Rose took some time to get over the Doctor's regeneration from his ninth to his tenth incarnation in The Parting of the Ways, The 2005 Children in Need Special, and The Christmas Invasion.
Recurring Characters Queen Victoria Victoria was Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and Empress of the British Empire from 1837 until her death in 1901. She was devoted to her husband, Prince Albert, and his death in 1861 deeply affected her. Victoria met the fifth Doctor twice. Firstly in Empire of Death (set in 1863), where her obsession with the late Albert led her into an encounter with a medium who was actually channelling alien beings from another dimension, and then in Imperial Moon (set in 1878), when she had commissioned a British Empire moon mission, which used a propulsion technology devised by aliens and subsequently destroyed.
