The Doctor showed me a better way of living your life. You know, he showed you, too. That you dont just give up. You dont just let things happen. You make a stand! You say no! You have the guts to do whats right, when everyone else just runs away.Rose starts out as an ordinary kid, just working in a shop, living everyday life, and becomes the Bad Wolf, the Defender of the Earth, and the woman who falls in love with two Doctors one she absorbs the time vortex for, and the other she tears through an alternate universe to find. She knows what she wants, and she goes after it no matter what the cost. That is what makes Rose the true badass she is. The best Doctor and companion relationships are when they both change each other for the better. Being with Rose made the Doctor stop being a war-weary soldier and start loving life again so much so that he want to go. Being with the Doctor gave Rose purpose and direction; in the course of two seasons she goes from a girl with no direction or real accomplishments in her life to an incredibly determined, resourceful, and fearless individual who never gives up until she finds her Doctor again in Season 4. Needless to say, Im thrilled she (and Ten-Two) will be back for the 50th Anniversary Special!
