Need to Know Basis

Dear readers: you may or may not be aware of the nickname Billie Piper gave to David Tennant during her time on Doctor Who. You also, like me, may not care.

However the fact remains that back in 2005 Ms Piper gave her new co-star the nickname of David “Twenty-five Centimetres” is a pun on his (professional) surname.

Oh how we laughed, and wondered at the sight of it.


Now, however, the David “Twenty-five Centimetres” nickname is back thanks to Billie Piper recent interview with Justin Lee Collins for the West Country hairy one’s “chat” show on ITV2 this week, during which La Piper reveals that a friend of hers slept with the Doctor Who star!

“One of my friends who was privy to the information handed it to me on a plate!”

Concerns have been raised at Kasterborous about the type of woman who takes both a ruler and a plate to bed with her, not to mention the type of chap who lets her.
