Cover blurb:
'Nice to meet you, Rose — Run for your life!'

Rose (2005) remiagines Doctor Who for the 21st century, showing us the Doctor through the eyes of Rose Tyler, a shop assistant unfulfilled in her job and relationship. It reinvents the Doctor and companion for modern television, grounding the show in a world of council estates, celebrity gossip and soap operas. Rose was not only a new vision for Doctor Who but pioneered a revival for the Saturday-night adventure series.

Jon Arnold edits fanzines and is a major contributor to Hating to Love.

Book-length looks at single Doctor Who stories from 1963 to the present day
