Rose Tyler, We Love You
Dear Rose Tyler,
Blimey! What have you got yourself into, girl?
Not only are you being flung around the known (and at times unkown) universe, fighting all sorts of evil, but the bloke you’re travelling with has died and come back to life.
You’ve fought off werewolves, zombies, fat farting aliens, Cybermen and Daleks. And you’ve met Queen Victoria, which makes us most jealous. You’ve also seen the end of the world, which is something to boast about.
Long live the girl who time travels in a hoodie!

Harriet: He’s not human? But he’s got a northern accent…
Rose Tyler: Lots of planets have a North.
Rose Tyler: Hasn’t it got, like, defense codes and things? Can’t we just launch a nuclear bomb at ’em?
Harriet: You’re a very violent young woman.

Rose Tyler’s background:
Rose Tyler is the latest companion in the Doctor Who sci-fi tv series. Nuff said? Hardly.
Rose Tyler’s father died when she was six months old and she was brought up on a council estate by her mother. Whilst working as a shop girl in Hendricks, a big London department store, Rose found herself unemployed and in the company of an alien time traveller when the shop dummies came to life and tried to kill her. Not the best of days, all things considered.
She dumped her boyfriend and started travelling through time and space (well, mainly time really, considering she’s rarely gone any further than London or Cardiff…) with the mysterious Doctor. Who, when facing the Daleks, gave his life to save Rose. Which was sweet of him. She’s still travelling with him, and who can blame her.
Except it’s all fictional, but we’re not going to let that stop us, are we?
Rose Tyler Best Known For:
Travelling through time in the TARDIS with a Time Lord. Being gritty and tough and so very adaptable. (She dumped her boyfriend to travel in a box with an alien, that’s a lot of life changes…)
She also cries a fair bit, but we have no reason to hold that against her. Nor the fact she nearly destroyed the universe stopping her dad from dying.
Rose Tyler Least Known For:
Being made a Dame some forty odd years before the title was created, but we could be splitting hairs here…
Stunningly high, indeed. Not only has she held her own against some of the universe’s greatest threats, she’s also played by Billie Piper. Who has also managed to escape some of the universe’s greatest threats by managing to salvage a decent career from the ashes of a dodgy pop career and a marriage to Chris Evans.
