I must say, from watching the clips, I thought I was going to hate this episode. But I really didn't. Even worse, I'm actually starting to like Eccleston as the Doctor. Really like him. So it's not any longer like I'm counting down the seconds to David Tennant and Matt Smith, but more like, I could wait for them to come, I'm going to enjoy Eccleston for the time being. So, that was a very scary thing to realize...But moving on to the episode.
I liked a lot of things about this episode. I liked how Rose screwed up, and her and the Doctor had their little tiff, but then she apologized, and he forgave her--after some comments on her intelligence or lack thereof. But then they were okay again. And I liked how they managed to make the reunion between Rose and her father sentimental and heart-felt, without making us groan. We believed it, and we were a little bit sad when it had to end. I also liked how they gave her father a chance for redemption, even in the middle of time where it would never be recognized except by Rose and the Doctor. So Rose had that memory of her father, saving her life.
