Sarah Jane Smith is Cooler than Rose Tyler
Debate Rounds (3)
Round 1: Debate terms and acceptance of the debate
Round 2: Debate starts
Round 3: Rebuttal/Final statements
I would prefer to debate with someone who has watched a fair amount of both ClassicWho and NuWho like me, so the debate wont be biased because of lack of knowledge about either character.
And that's about it! Allons-y!
Rose, despite the belief of many, was not the Doctor's first love. In modern terms, she was more the first person that (we, the fans, saw anyway) the Doctor really wanted to bonk. While she was around, Doctor Who was no longer about traveling the Universe and offering jelly babies to your enemies. It was about her. Seriously, every episode. Even poor Martha could barely get a word in sometimes, and Rose was long gone by then. Rose also seemed to feel a bit too entitled to the Doctor and travelling through time and space with him. She makes it seem like she is the ultimate companion when really she is just one of a long line.
When Sarah Jane saw the Doctor regenerate, she did not flip out and cry about how the Doctor "left her" like Rose did. In fact, the only reason why the Doctor regenerated in front of Rose was because he was saving her butt! Also, Sarah Jane has been in episodes featuring all but the Sixth and Seventh Doctors, counting one of Paul McGann's audiobooks and the special "The Five Doctors". That has got to count for something! Sarah Jane set the stage for all who came after her. She is loved by two different generations and will definitely be loved by the generations to come.
And did Rose get her own TV show? No, I didn't think so!
I personally believe Rose helped the Doctor accept companions again without her he would probably still be surfing time alone.
As a side note did Sarah become a nigh immortal being cause Rose became Bad Wolf.
This paragraph caught my eye:
"Sarah Jane"s substantial showing [in School Reunion] demonstrated the fondness many fans still have for the iconic classic companion, who was brought back for several episodes in the modern series and was rewarded with her own successful spinoff The Sarah Jane Adventures...It"s safe to say that had Elisabeth Sladen lived, she"d still be appearing in Doctor Who episodes from now until one of their many Ends Of Time finally finishes things off for good. And that"s because Sarah Jane kept going too. Of all the Doctor"s companions, she"s the one who, rather than sitting back to reminisce over her time as a space traveler, would clearly continue in the same adventurous vein for as long as the Earth was imperiled."
Well said. This part has nothing against Rose, but is an example of how cool Sarah Jane is.
Could you respond to some of my points?
