Earlier this week, in celebration of Dr. Who‘s reincarnation turning ten, Tor.com published a great ode to Rose, whose character often gets overlooked when looking back at the series’ major players.

Ten years ago to the day, Doctor Who returned to television screens. It’s been a wild decade so far, and for many fans, this was where their Whovian journey began. But with a show that evolves so quickly and so often, it can be easy to forget what made the world love Who all over again. For many of us, “Rose” was a gateway into the world of the Doctor and his TARDIS.
