Summary: Rose reflects on how much her life has changed since she met the Doctor.
Growing up on the Powell Estate, Rose had always considered herself pretty ordinary. She was average height, average intelligence, got average grades at school, dated pretty average guys and got an average sort of job in a department store; better than working in a factory or a typing pool, but nothing particularly thrilling.
Then he’d come along, the Doctor, rescuing her from living store mannequins, dragging her along with him into a life of excitement and adventure like nothing she’d ever imagined in her wildest dreams.
Just like that, she stopped being an ordinary girl and really began to live.
