MAIN REVIEW

  • What do we think of the opening titles and theme music?
  • Establishing shot of earth. What do we think and should it have been reused so much?
  • We have some fast paced music and we see Roses day. Is the music a bit OTT?
  • Rose goes down to the basement to give Wilson the lottery money. H P Wilson C.E.O. it says on the door.
  • Rose wonders into the room with the mannequins. Do you think this scene was scary? Someone once told me this was terrifying.
  • Right before she gets clobbered the Doctor appears and tells her to run. The Doctor is back. He’s now Christopher Eccleston and we dont get a regeneration scene.
  • We have the scene in the lift in which they discuss students and Wilson being dead.
  • He reveals that he’s going to blow up the relay device on the roof and tells her not to tell anyone about this or It could get them killed. The shop blows up and as Rose runs off we see the Tardis parked on the street.
  • Back at the flat Rose is watching the coverage of the blast on the news. Jackie is trying to get her an interview. And then Mickey turns up all concerned. His concern soon turn to trying to get Rose down the pub to watch the match. She doesn’t seem to mind and lets him go off but asks that he disposes of the mannequin arm.
  • The following day the arm returns through the cat flap and the Doctor tracks it down.
  • Jackies excited to have a strange man in her bedroom.
  • The Doctor has some quick reads and looks in the mirror seemingly for one of the first times.
  • The arm attacks them but he then disarms it.
  • Rose chases after him and he explains to her whats going on. And then we have the ’turn of the world’ speech. Then they part ways and we hear the Tardis for the first time.
  • Rose goes to Mickeys yo use his computer. Hes bad washing mugs. I bet he makes bad cuppas.
  • Dont read my emails he says.
  • Rose does a search for Doctor Who but juys gets a load of medical stuff at first. I actually have that problem a lot when im searching Doctor Who.
  • She finds Clives website and Mickey drives her there concerned hes a murdering internet lunatic. Rose meets Clive and tell him her boyfriend is waiting in the car incase he kills her. “Good point” Clive says as if he’s definitely the sort of guy who would do that. So he takes her through to the shed.
  • He shows her some of his stuff. Its a shame we didnt see some past doctors here. Clive reveals that he believes the Doctor is an immortal alien.
  • Meanwhile outside Mickey goes to investigage a shaking wheelie bin. He gets a bit stuck. Then the bin eats him.
  • Rose returns to the car and she and an unconvincing looking plastic Mickey go for pizza. At lunch Mickey keep enquiring about the Doctor. How on earth does Rose not see that he looks like a cartoon character.
  • The Doctor arrives and pops a cork into Mickeys head. He chews it and spits it out. He turns his hand into a pizza flipper. He smashes the table so the Doctor pulls his head off. Russels mate screams.
  • The leg it with the head while being chased by the plastic pizza flipping headless plastic version of Mickey. Then then rose enters the tardis for the first time. Only to run back out to do the classic run around before going back inside.
  • This is a nice scene and reveal of the Tardis. While shes trying to proceeds whats going on she concludes that what Clive told her was right. He is alien. And shes a bit upset about Mickey who at this stage is seemingly dead. The plastic Mickey head is hooked up to the Tardis so the Doctor can track the signal to its source but as it begins to melt they take off.
  • They exit the Tarids. ”It diapears here and reapears there” he says. Rose is thibking of how shes going to haveto tell Mickys mam hes dead. she doesnt seem too devistated herself. The Doctor explains why he has a northern accent, why the Tardis looks like a police box. And he explains how thr Nestines food stocks were destroyed during the war. Hes looking for a great big round transmitter and Rose notices the London eye.
  • Along with some fast paced music we get the pair running around and they find their way underground.
  • Theres a vat of plastic. The Nestine Conciousness. But instead of throwing in his anti plastic he addresses it under peacefull contract citing convention 15 of the Shadow Proclamation.
  • Rose finds Micky still alive. She says ”youre stinking” and he takes a wif of his jacket. This is probably because he was in a bin. Did they wheel Micky here?
  • The Doctors been rumbled as as they find his anti plastic. They also have his Tardis. We get some mentions of the War. The Doctor fought in it and he couldnt save thir world.
  • Out of fear the Nestene begins their invasion. Jackie Tyler is out shopping. And so, reluctantly, is Clive. The shop window dumies come to life and smash the windows. Clive is shot dead sadly. perhaps not dead as he returned for Big Finish.
  • Three brides line up the execute Jakie.
  • Rose finds the courage to fight and while chain swinging about she knocks the antibplastic into the vat.
  • They eacape in the Tardis while somehow everything just blows up and all the plastic becomes inactive. Many died.
  • The Doctor extends an invite to Rose to go with him. With Micky clinging to her like an injured puppy she feels obliged to stay behind.
  • The doctor returns mentioning that it travels in time. I wonder if he got upto much. Maybe this is where all the Big Finish stuff fits in?
  • She leaves Micky behind and runs to the Tardis.
