Rose is a shop assistant at Harrods and finds herself in a top floor storage room when the mannequins seem to come to life. She's rescued by a man who calls himself the Doctor but reveals little about himself. Her Internet search leads her to a man who believes that the Doctor is an immortal alien who has been instrumental in averting various Earthly disasters. Their paths cross again and Rose helps the Doctor in fighting a race of plastics-based creatures whose home world may have been destroyed in a battle involving the Doctor. Rose seems like the perfect companion for his future travels. Written by

In one scene, Clive shows Rose a picture of the Doctor standing in the crowd in Dallas on November 22, 1963, just before President Kennedy is assassinated. This is a nod to the original "Dr. Who" series: Doctor Who: An Unearthly Child
(1963) was first aired the day after Kennedy's assassination, on November 23, 1963. See more
When Jackie Tyler is nearly about to be shot by the Autons, the first one's hand opens. It switches to the next bit, then back to the Autons and the second one's hand opens. It then cuts out to a view of all three Autons with all of their hands open, yet after the next clip with Rose and the Doctor in it, the third Auton's hand opens. But in the previous shot of the Autons all three hands were open. The third hand should not have opened, if it was shown open before. See more
