Mickey (occasionally referred to on the podcast as Mickey-Ricky) can best be characterised by his relationship with fellow companion Rose Tyler, who effectively left him for the more charismatic and adventurous Time Lord. Mickey was not without his qualities, though, able to hack into any system with a one-word, lowercase, non-numerical password and now two-factor-authentication. He also seemed to end up fighting baddies with Martha Jones after his time in the TARDIS.
Having watched and discussed all of the Tenth Doctor episodes, we hereby contemplate the highs and lows of not only the David Tennant era, but of an epoch defined by Russell T Davies
Far too many farewells pepper The Tenth Doctor’s long-awaited yet sadly poor departure.
The Doctor abandons Rose with a genocidal Donna in Tennant-form and there’s no sign of The Shadow Proclamation anywhere!
It’s Rose’s last episode (sort of), with Sarcastic Daleks, a Doc who doesn’t give a damn, and a Tyler family reunion
The Doc euthanises a young bride-to-be, tortures millions of people to death, and then Mickey and Jake go to France.
A crazy billionaire creates the Cybermen in a bizarro London, and alternate-universe-Mickey (aka Ricky) is really angry.
Clockword androids watch as the Doctor snogs a woman he met when she was a little girl. And then there’s a horse.
A glorious reunion with three Smiths, two tin dogs, and genetically modified gargoyles who are allergic to their own oil.
Tennant’s first proper episode as The Doctor, in which he sleeps a lot, Rose is inconsistent and aliens rock!
