About this Episode

This week, I'm joined by Kathleen Schowalter, to discuss a moment from 2005's Rose, the first episode of modern Doctor Who, featuring Christopher Eccleston as the Ninth Doctor and Billie Piper as Rose. We talk about the visceral effect when someone shouts run, how this one word connects the many lives of the Doctor throughout the show's history, and what it means to Rose to have the opportunity to run with the Doctor.
