Because it contains this line?
All right, perhaps you want something more. One of the surprising things about Doctor Who is that, for a show that is so brash and loud and big and camp (in a good way) most of the time on the television, it lends itself spectacularly well to introspective, poetic, lyrical and intelligent pieces of writing. This story shows the relationship between Rose and the Doctor, and Rose’s character herself with subtlety, beautiful language and lovely vignettes. Using as a muse a Crowded House song. If that isn’t talent, I don’t know what is.
