not Rose Tyler! no!

UPDATE: Oh, crap. How was it so sweet when proper-Sam ended up handcuffed to his bed, and just gross and icky when not-proper-Sam did?

I know I said I wasn’t gonna write about Life on Mars, but I’ve got it on here in the background while I’m working, and bad enough that they’re continuing to completely fuck it all up, but why why why did they change the name of Sam’s mother from Ruth to Rose?

Every time someone says “Rose Tyler,” I have to scream. I’m very sensitive about Doctor Who at the moment — don’t they realize this?

Let it go, MAJ. You’re not even supposed to be watching that show.

And by that show, I mean Dr. Who.

You better stay away from all medical shows, then.

Irony (!) of course being that Sam Tyler was named for Rose after the writer heard the name on Dr Who when he watching it with his kids. Swings and indeed roundabouts.

Perhaps they should have named her Jackie…

Yep… that would be the exact moment I officially decided to not watch it again. I tried to put up with a lot from that show- it did have its (rare) moments, but bringing Rose into it was just way too much.

Hehe at Jackie!
