Rose enters the TARDIS, where the Doctor is looking at the computer screen and making all manner of shouting excuses. "All right, so I lied! I went and had a look, but the whole crash landing's a fake. I thought so! It's just too perfect! I mean, 'hitting Big Ben'? Come on! So I thought, let's go and have a look..." I love that. I love that he has to cover in front of Rose. She interrupts him -- "My mum's here" -- just as Jackie and Mickey enter. The Doctor: "Oh, that's just what I need. Don't you dare make this place domestic!" Mickey gets all cold with him immediately: "You ruined my life, Doctor," he says, because the Doctor's the only one he can blame. The Doctor turns stylishly to face Mickey as he continues: "They thought she was dead. I was a murder suspect because of you." The Doctor gives the only response he really can, shrugging to Rose, "See what I mean? Domestic." He turns back to the screens, and Mickey steps closer: "I bet you don't even remember my name!" The Doctor, clearly fucking with him -- or doing another Peter Pan move -- calls him "Rickey," and when corrected, he shakes his head: "No, it's Rickey." Mickey protests that he knows his own name, and the Doctor looks at him quizzically: "You think you know your own name?" Mickey asks if he's stupid, but it's kind of a complex moment, because the Doctor is pulling a whole North/South thing with him here, about how Mickey is laddish and from the estate, and the Doctor is moderately suave and 900 years old and owns a time machine, so no matter what: who's the stupid one, again?
Jackie, having had her fill of the TARDIS indoors, cuts and runs back out again, hilariously. Rose orders the Doctor (that's four) not to go anywhere, and orders Mickey not to start a fight, and follows her mother back to the building, but stops after a moment, having yet again processed important info from a scene ago. Is it actually a character point that she has Memento disease? "Mum, it's not like that! He's not...I'll be up in a minute, hold on!" She runs back to the Doctor's side, inside the TARDIS: "That was a real spaceship!" Yep. "So, it's all a pack of lies? What is it then, are they invading?" ("Two excellent questions, Rose.") Mickey joins in the exposition, craning up to look at the monitors: "Funny way to invade, putting the world on red alert." The Doctor nods, giving Mickey credit for his excellent observation, and wonders aloud what they are up to.
