Storyline

All of her life, Rose's mother told how great a man her father Pete was. He was killed by a hit and run driver when Rose was just a baby and among her many regrets was that her father died alone, just lying on the street. Rose asks the Doctor to take her back to that day. Rather than just be with him when he dies, she actually saves him and later admits that this was her plan all along. She soon realizes that her parents' marriage was not exactly the golden relationship she had claimed it to be. Far worse however, is that by saving her father, Rose has created a tear in space and time with the result that creatures are now feasting on humans. The Doctor isn't sure he'll be able to make everything right. Pete knows what he has to do, however. Written by garykmcd

One of the best Doctor Who episodes
8 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode has one of the strongest plots in the Doctor Who series. Yes, it is from season one. And the lead actors Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper have good chemistry. The supporting cast does their job well too. The premise of the episode is going back in time to try to save a life. The emotional dialogue and acting made this episode interesting. Rose is really likable and the Doctor is at it again! The Doctor also shows some bravery. Rose's dad is a funny character but he also has some redeemable traits. And Rose's mother is funny too. The monsters in the episode are not too scary for a younger audience to watch. And the special effects were cool.
