Summary: Rose wouldn’t have believed it!

“Ever since humans started fiddling about with radio waves earth has been broadcasting everything out into the universe,” the Doctor told Rose. “Loads of planets have picked up the transmissions and tried to make sense of them. They’re considered rather quaint on some planets.”

“So, what, all the TV shows that have ever been broadcast are still floating around out here?”

“Yep!” The Doctor beamed at her. “Want to see?” He switched on a screen.

The image was black and white, badly pixelated, but the theme tune was familiar.

“Coronation Street?”

“Very popular on Loomis. They think it’s a documentary.”
