Trivia

In the season six opener, Amy and Rory meet up with the Doctor after getting off a yellow school bus. With these being the first episodes filmed in America, the production team wanted to use purely American icons as much as possible. Initially, the Ponds were to get out of a pickup truck, but the bus was used instead, as that color on the vehicle was an American thing, and they don't have that color of bus in the UK. See more »

User Reviews

Excellent
26 March 2005 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

I just cant understand why people are saying 'Rose' was just OK. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I think that the new series excels itself compared to previous series e.g 6th doctor stories. I commend Russel T Davies for doing a fantastic job of propelling doctor who into the 21st century.

I pity the old doctor who fans who say 'oh its just not the same'and Eccleston is 'too different to be the doctor'. They are right! its not the same! Neither are we! We are living in a different century to the old episodes and many things have changed. Set in modern day I think the episode was more realistic and 10 times more enjoyable. So boo to the criticisms

Everyone I have spoken to had a whale of a time even many children cant wait for next week.Lets hope the rest of the series fails to disappoint us!

Congratulations BBC!!
