Storyline

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 garykmcd

Trivia

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 »

Boring for the first half, but you may find some entertainment if you muscle through
19 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode was my first exposure to Dr. Who. I've heard from many people about how awesome this show is, so I decided to give it a go. To be frank, it was boring for at least the first half (I know this opinion isn't likely to be popular, but I'm being honest). It took me multiple attempts to actually finish the episode; I shut it off at one point and decided to try again a few days later. The latter half of the show was a bit more interesting/fun to watch, at least, and what happens at the end is highly entertaining... at least to me. As boring as the first half was, the second half gave me enough hope to watch the next episode, at least.
