Mickey Smith

Mickey Smith is a fictional character portrayed by Noel Clarke in the British science fiction television series Doctor Who. The character is introduced as the working class boyfriend of Rose Tyler (Billie Piper), a London shopgirl who becomes a travelling companion to the Ninth and Tenth incarnations of an alien Timelord known as the Doctor. Mickey first appears in the first episode of the 2005 revival, "Rose". Initially someone who struggles in the face of danger, Mickey nevertheless acts as an earth based ally to the Doctor and Rose. In the second series he joins the pair as a companion, though leaves during the 2006 series to pursue his own adventures. Mickey returns to aid the Doctor and Rose in the 2006 series finale and the 2008 episode "Journey's End", later returning for a cameo in the 2010 serial The End of Time.

Executive producer Russell T Davies created the character alongside Rose's mother Jackie (Camille Coduri) in order to provide a home context for Rose. The character's dubious personality traits were made evident; both Davies and Clarke postulated that the character "deserved to lose his girlfriend". Though Clarke felt his character was initially "a clown" he enjoyed having the chance to mature Mickey into a more heroic character in his later appearances. Television commentators generally reacted positively to this character growth. In 2007 the entertainment and media news website Digital Spy highlighted him as a "Cult Spy Icon".

Famous quotes containing the words smith and/or mickey:

    Why does my Muse only speak when she is unhappy?
    She does not, I only listen when I am unhappy
    When I am happy I live and despise writing
    For my Muse this cannot but be dispiriting.
    —Stevie Smith (1902–1971)

    ... memory is the only way home.
    Terry Tempest Williams, U.S. author. As quoted in Listen to Their Voices, ch. 10, by Mickey Pearlman (1993)
