So – Has She Been Asked?

And if not, can we just move on? Like NOW?

The BBC have reported that Billie Piper is undecided about whether she will return to Doctor Who.

I thought Rose Tyler was trapped in a parallel world with a humanised clone of the Doctor myself, but there you go.


Piper told The Radio Times: “I haven’t thought about it,” adding “at some point you’ve just got to let go”.

So let’s call that an end to it – please?

On more speech related issues, the Radio Times questioned the very pregnant Mrs Fox about her curious speech on Turn Left

“It seemed fine when I heard it. When I went to work the next morning the make-up guy said, ‘Your speech sounded really funny.’ I wonder whether it was something in the final mix. Strange,” said Piper.

Speaking about her role in Doctor Who, the actress said that it is “stressful when the schools are out”.

“Sweet as they are, kids en masse are kind of frightening. Every child just thinks you’re Rose and you don’t want to spoil the illusion.”

Just to underline, then. I love you, Billie Piper. Your Rose Tyler was wonderful. She’d outstayed her welcome by the end of Series 2, however, and her return was rather lovely and well done.

But you’re totally right, Billie. You do have to let go, and the time to do that has past.
