Rose Tyler needs to snuff it.
Oh, it has been prophesised, by a creature who may or may not have been Satan, that she will in the two part story ending of the current season but it really can’t come fast enough. So why does she need to join the choir invisible? Because she has become really, really annoying. Remember that little orange guy from Transformers: The Movie? Wheelie? You remember how annoying he was and how you wished Grimlock would just bite him in half … well, Rose may not speak in rhyme like some brain damaged moron but she’s still a hell of a lot worse than that vocabulary challenged git.
When we first met Rose (in the imaginatively named episode Rose) she was an emotionally lost directionless nobody. She worked in a crappy department store and had a spineless idiot for a boyfriend. She wasn’t a fearless scottish warrior, a plucky victorian girl, an expert with explosives or even an investigative journalist – she was a complete and utter nobody.
But she wasn’t too bad. She was prepared to get in there and have a go; swining on a cable like Tarzan to knock over a couple of Autons … not that it did much but anyhow. Perhaps it’s just that Rose looks competent only by comparison – her Mother will apparently go for any piece of meat on the menu and lacks brains of any merit while her boyfriend, as mentioned, is a spineless wuss you wouldn’t trust to open a door.
Since then she’s only gotten far worse. She went from completely-out-of-her-depth travel accessory in The End of the World to self righteous and quite uncaring little bitch by the time of Fear Her. A prime example: in Tooth and Claw, which involved the gruesome deaths of quite a lot of people via liberal application of a werewolf, Rose seemed far more focused and concerned over getting Queen Victoria to say ‘We are not amused’ than actually doing anything to help. Yeah … great form, Rose.
Simply put, Rose Tyler is one of the most annoying recurring characters seen on the series (yeah, Adric is still far worse … but hey, he snuffed it too!) and needs to go the way of the Dodo. If one were particularly sadistic, they may even wish for her to be Upgraded by the Cybermen and thus leave it to the Doctor to decide whether to destroy her or deactivate the emotion inhibitor so she goes insane and destroys herself.
