An amazingly powerful close to the episode.
23 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you take Rose Tyler out, you make an all to familiar error in episodic television. People want a face, a person, an emotional investment for the show to carry, cherish even protect. This show moves from danger to danger and a new generation of viewers is following and Rose is our steady link to this chaotic light speed introduction into "the Doctor's" world. With so many things that we're asked to accept you must give us our constant attachment to Billie Piper's face and Rose's innocence turned confidence in the face of multiple calamities. If you move on without giving us our face, I may still follow but you'll never get the same emotional investment nor the same desire to follow.

Billie Piper, oooh. Well played. I'm not some renowned critic or some stiff aristocrat spouting opinions in the Queen's English. I'm not going to effect your life in the slightest way with my feelings. But by golly that was some impressive acting, for TV or any other medium. Brava!
