Rose was one of the best episodes of Series 1 when I was a kid. Spooky mystery with the promise of adventure and creative villains. Didn't get the emotion porn of the next two episodes at all back then, and the following two-parter is dull. It doesn't have the tragedy nor the complexity a lot of the show has but it's a great episode.
Emotion porn?

In any case, 'Rose' isn't a great episode, but it has great moments and sets up the modern series nicely. The whole 'anti-plastic' bit was pure gold and, along with The Doctor's speech about the Earth spinning, sold me on the show and the character of The Doctor.

I'd start there.
Some say that if you get Amazon Prime he will hand-deliver your packages during a powerslide in a classic Jag and that he's paid with bottles of octane booster.

All we know is, he's not The Stig but he is The Stig's non-trademarked generic cousin.
