Okay, so I give in... "The Impossible Planet" made me gleeful at the Rose/Ten cuteness, particularly the mortgage talk, the kissing of the helmet, and Ten wanting to rush up when he hears that Rose is in trouble. Plus, his sincere regret at getting her stuck there, coupled with her sheer awesomeness at adapting to the situation and buoying his spirits... how can he NOT love her? Rose Tyler is fantastic. There's no way around it.
Btw, Billie Piper and David Tennant's real life friendship? Also great. It reminds me of Meloni and Mariska... just the joy they get out of being around one another. Sadly, Billie and David don't get the ten years together that CM and MH did... they need to work together in the future!
