You have the chance to see one moment in your future or revisit one moment from your past, which would you choose and why?

I wouldn’t. Let me explain. When I was first lost in an alternate version of the Earth, I was, well, lost. Quite entirely. I joined Torchwood, I went to work at living but it was difficult to focus on anything. Then one night I heard the Doctor calling me and followed the voice to a cold beach in Norway where I found him and in the span of minutes lost him again. It was the worst day of my life.

And then, two years later, two years of searching without and within and every which way other - - I found him again. And there standing beside him, watching him solve all the puzzles and problems the universe dared to lay before him, I found myself again. It was like I was alive where I had only been breathing before. But the thing about the Doctor, the thing I never wanted to accept or admit -- the Doctor’s universe is infinite but traveling with the Doctor is finite. It ends.

And it ended, for me, again, on a cold beach in Norway.

And whatever happens now I know -- I never want to revisit that day again.

Rose Tyler was a glass-half-empty kind of girl. She grew up without her father; she had half a family. She'd some pluck but not enough to push her past that halfway mark. You know the type – all that potential and it never went anywhere. Overshadowed by a mum with a loud personality and a odd look at the glass herself Rose grew up without ambition. She woke up every morning already half-defeated. A glass-half-empty kind of girl.

Well. The Doctor is a glass-half-full type. And his talent is, he turns everybody around right with him. You can be the glass-half-emptiest of them all and then you meet the Doctor and POW. It's like magic. But when Rose met the Doctor he was missing that magic. He was a glass-equal. Half-empty for grief. But half-full enough to turn Rose around.

Left on the beach on the worst day of her life Rose might have turned back to half-empty ways. After all, she was half-empty. Her heart was lost in space. Instead she threw out the glass entirely. She learned from the best – the question is not half-empty or half-full. It's what you see when you look beyond the glass.

Hullo. My name’s Rose. Rose Tyler. Until I was 19 I lived a pretty boring life. I didn’t look at it that way when I living it. But that’s what time in the TARDIS will do to you. Widen perspective. Widen it so much and so far you can’t ever go back. And not just about me.

The universe is so big. You look up in the sky and you see all those little lights called stars and you don’t know what that means 'til you’ve been there. Trust me. You can’t understand it. I’ve been there. I’ve been in space and I’ve seen the end of the world, I’ve seen it more than once. And I could try to tell you but it wouldn’t mean anything. Some things words can’t explain.

And now it’s done. The journey, that journey, for me, it’s done. But I look out here on this one little planet with its one little star and I realize it’s still so beautiful. That’s what he left me with. My Doctor. And my life won’t ever be boring.
