Rose joins the Doctor after he saves her during an Auton invasion. They travel together while she keeps him company after the outcome of the Time War. Meeting Daleks, Slitheen and her own dead father, Rose and the Doctor meet and travel with Adam Mitchell and Captian Jack Harkness for short periods of time, before Rose absorbs the energy of the time vortex to save the universe from Daleks. The Doctor takes this lethal dose of energy from her, causing him to regenerate.

Rose and the Doctor (with a new face) continue travelling, joined briefly by Mickey Smith after an encounter with the Krillitanes and a blast from the Doctor's past, meeting Sarah Jane Smith. They faced Cybermen, Ood, and a creature whom the Doctor named an Abzorbaloff. However, when Rose visited home one day, ghosts were appearing worldwide. This led the way for the Cybermen to invade, but they had the Daleks to contend with. A large battle ensued, which resulted in Rose being trapped on the wrong side of the Void separating this world and one parallel to it.

However, Rose returned when the whole of creation was under threat from Davros and his reality bomb. Blasting through from her world to this one, Rose arrived just in time to help the Doctor and the rest of his companions of recent times to destroy Davros's plans. After this, the Doctor took Rose back to her parallel world and sealed it off for good.

However, that wasn't the last we saw of Rose. Before regenerating, the Doctor visited Rose at a different point on her timeline: a few months before she met the Doctor. Furthermore, in the 50th Anniversary Special, the Moment took on the form of Rose when it was addressing the War Doctor. However, as the War Doctor was on a point in the Doctor's timeline where he hadn't met Rose yet, he didn't know who she was.


Rose stands up to the Doctor
When Rose first joined the Doctor, she was still a teenager. She was stubborn, feisty and always stood up to the Doctor if he wanted to do something she disagreed with. At first, she seemed pretty overwhelmed by the whole concept of time travel, however by The Long Game she is shown to be more comfortable with it when she is talking with Adam.

Rose will stop at nothing to help the Doctor, even when he does his best to stop her. For example, in The Parting of the Ways Rose absorbs the energy of the time vortex just to return to the Doctor. Also, in different circumstances, Rose drags her family all the way to Norway just to get a last chance to say goodbye to the Doctor in Doomsday.

Rose carries out her plan
Rose was also seen to mature over her time with the Doctor: she went from relying on the Doctor for a plan to leading in his absence. This can be seen in The Satan Pit and Fear Her when the Doctor is unable to save the day.

However, when Rose returns from the parallel world, she is shown to have changed dramatically. Rose is now seen to be carrying a large weapon, something she would not have done in the past.

Rose is also portrayed as a forgiving person towards Lady Cassandra in New Earth and the Dalek in Dalek. She's also willing to apologise and admit her mistakes, such as those in Father's Day.

Rose bickers with Sarah Jane
She is also shown to be jealous at various times, such as when Mickey is talking about his new girlfriend in Boom Town and when she finds out Sarah Jane used to travel with the Doctor in School Reunion.

She is also shown to have a romantic interest in the Doctor. It was hinted at during Series 1, but more proclaimed during Series 2. Rose seemed betrayed when she found out the Doctor had travelled with other woman before, and was worried that she'd be left behind one day. There was also some romantic tension in The Impossible Planet when the Doctor and Rose have lost the TARDIS and discussing how they'd have to settle on Earth.

Coming Soon...
