Billie Piper Interviewed by Digital Spy

Billie Piper, best known for her portrayal of Rose Tyler in Doctor Who and Belle in Secret Diary of a Call Girl, has recently taken part in an exclusive interview with Digital Spy. In the interview Billie talks about Doctor Who and Secret Diary of a Call Girl and discussed her short appearance in The End of Time Part Two. She also spoke about the future of Rose and has said that it is unlikely that she will return to the series any time soon. Billie Piper played the part of Rose throughout series one and two of Doctor Who, for the last three episodes of series four and in The End of Time Part Two. Is this the last we've seen of Rose?

The segment from the Digital Spy interview follows:

You returned in scenes for Tennant's final Doctor Who outing. How was that?
"It was weird because I didn't have a full script and I had to do it in three hours. It was after filming Secret Diary in the day and it was too short! I didn't know anything about the story. I wish I'd been there for the whole episode - but that would have been a bit tedious!"


Is there room for Rose to return at a later date?

"I think it's done now, isn't it? I think that ship has sailed. That old, wooden ship! I really loved doing it, but Doctor Who has moved on - it's different people, different crew, different production team and I can't keep going back. It's ridiculous! It's time to move on..."


The interview can be read in full here on Digital Spy's official website. So, it would seem that Billie has doubts about returning to Doctor Who in the near future, but agrees that it's time to move on. A while ago Steven Moffat said that he would not bring Rose back for seires five as he thinks she is "needy". But does that mean that he will never bring Rose back? You can catch Billie in the third series of The Secret Diary of a Call Girl every Thursday evening at 10:00pm on ITV 2.
