The Doctor and Rose are watching the TV intently as the on-the-scene reporter I've decided should be named Tom HOTchinson relays the following info regarding police instructions on the UFO situation: don't panic, and call this number if you're freaking out. An American channel says that "the military are on the lookout for more spaceships" and that "all flights in North American air space have been grounded" for the time being. The UK news says that they're sending divers into the wreck, and the American news says that the President will be addressing the nation shortly, and that viewers should watch the skies. The UK anchor is so, so intense. I love how the UK news is like, "Here's what happened, don't freak out," while the U.S. news is all, "Obviously America is the central focus of this attack, because America is always the point of whatever's happening, even on the other side of the globe. Also, please be totally afraid, and wait in silence for your glorious leader to transmit more commands." I wish it were more satirical and less depressing. Jackie and her stupid friend Marianna babble and bring tea into the living room, and the Doctor "oi"s at them to shut up, and they say they found a body now, in the wreckage, and then the camera gets jostly as they bring the non-terrestrial body ashore.
