In a recent interview, Billie Piper has revealed that she loves the new choice for the Doctor - literally. Miss Piper, who played Rose Tyler during Series 1, 2 and 4, said, "I love him. He's a stirring actor, and he has the right energy. That's what the Doctor is about, essentially - having that energy that you just can't understand."
Billie has worked with Matt Smith before in The Ruby in the Smoke, The Shadow in the North and Secret Diary of a Call Girl, but could she return to Doctor Who and become his companion once more? "I don't know. It's hard. Sometimes you just want to leave something behind, and then you see an episode and are like, 'God I really want to do it!' You change your mind all the time."
However, it is fairly unlikely that Rose will come back, as Steven Moffat has called her 'needy.' Perhaps it should be a good few years yet, but she assures fans, "They're in good hands."
