I’ve already said plenty that this is the series I’m most looking forward to revisiting because I suspect my feelings will be different on rewatch. I’m keeping my mind open, friends. The Rose-era has passed and onward we go.
Busy London street. Freema Agyeman is back, you guys, and she’s walking along. She gets a call from her sister who insists that their father is going mental and Freema has to do something about it. Next, her brother rings (and thankfully calls her Martha, getting that out of the way) and says that he didn’t even want a party and if their parents are going to fight about it, they can just give him the money. I tried this tactic for my Quinceañera and I’m still waiting on that money, bro.

I’ve got to say that the most surprising thing about Series 2 was how very little of it I remembered. Sometimes I caught myself asking myself, “did I watch this? Did I skip this? How did I erase this completely from my mind?” I don’t have the answers for any of those questions, but those impressions speak greatly to the experience of series 2, for me at least.
There were a ton of episodes that felt weak, but it’s a season that is punctuated by lovely character moments, especially if you are invested in the relationship between Rose and the Doctor.
