Ex-Companions Rumoured for 50th Anniversary

Biliie Piper as Doctor Who companion Rose Tyler

Popular tabloid the Daily Express has claimed today that the Doctor Who 50th anniversary is going to feature Billie Piper, Karen Gillan and Carole Ann Ford!

This audacious claim naturally comes from the mouth of a show insider, and will stop a few fans dead in their tracks – after all, Billie has already made more returns to the show than Patrick Troughton!

According to the Express, Carole Ann Ford could also be appearing, as well as Karen Gillan, although the actress recently stated that she would not be coming back. Says the Express’ source:

Next year is massive for the show. They are going to be pulling out all the stops. There will be plenty of nods to the show’s remarkable history and some old faces are likely to be reappearing. Karen and Billie are two of the Doctor’s greatest companions and it’s hoped they will be involved.

What do you think? Who would you like to see return – and who would you not like to see?
