Billie Piper to do the “Foxtrot”
The drama is a “one-off” play that will be featured as part of Sky Arts’ Playhouse Presents programming. The play is by Polly Stenham and is about a “gang heist gone wrong” (although, to be honest, how often do gang heists go right?). It also stars James Bond actor, Ben Whishaw, who at one point was a bookies’ favorite to take over the TARDIS from Matt Smith. Filming has yet to begin on the project and the air date of the drama is to be determined. This will make the third time Doctor Who has taken part in the series, as both Tennant and Smith have been involved in previous productions.
With the 50th just around the corner, and a role in the upcoming Showtime drama, Penny Dreadful, it would seem that Piper is poised to regain mainstream attention that she enjoyed as the Tenth Doctor’s companion, Rose Tyler.
Will you be tuning in for Foxtrot?
