Rose Tyler is the first of the Doctor's companions to appear in the 2005 reboot of Doctor Who. She is the first companion to be the focus of an episode, as 'Rose' follows her rather than the Doctor for much of its length. She is also the first companion to have a family as a significant part of her life, and the first to experience domestic conflict surrounding her travels with the Doctor. Companions since Rose have all followed this model, with some leaving families behind at home while others divide their time between traveling and having a regular life. While she is not the first companion to kiss the Doctor, she is the first to canonically consider a romantic relationship with him. For this reason her character is a source of conflict among fans, and she is often a victim of character bashing.

In Series 1 Rose is established as being 19 years old. This makes her the first contemporary Earth teenager to travel with the Doctor since Dodo Chaplet in 1966.

Fandom

For many new fans, Rose was their first companion and took on a special significance. She appears regularly on the first two seasons of the new Doctor Who series, and has several guest appearances in later seasons.

Pairings

Rose is commonly shipped with some incarnation of the Doctor, usually Nine, Ten, or Ten II (the meta-crisis Tenth Doctor). She has not canonically met other incarnations, but she's shipped with them as well.

Rose has also been shipped with Captain Jack Harkness, Mickey Smith, and Donna Noble.
