Billie Piper not involved in 50th anniversary

http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/tv/s7/do...ry-return.html

Billie Piper has ruled out a return to Doctor Who for the 50th anniversary, claiming that she hasn't even been contacted to take part.

The actress, who played Rose Tyler on the sci-fi show, was previously linked to a return following comments from Matt Smith about how he would like to work with Piper.

However, Piper has quashed talk of a return during an appearance on The Graham Norton Show.

When asked if she was returning to the BBC series, Piper said: "No. I've not been asked.

"I think Matt Smith said something in passing or in jest like, 'That would be nice', and it became something, but no."
Ah well.

Wow, I didn't even think about the possibility of companions coming back for the 50th anniversary. Of course this could explain how they bring back Tennant, and how both of them are on that distant world.

Re: Billie Piper not involved in 50th anniversary

It's a shame she's not returning if for no other reason than because she was pivotal to the show's successful return. That being said, I'm not going to loss any sleep over it.

Why wouldn't companions come back? Technically, having the companions return makes more sense than previous incarnations of The Doctor.

Of course, this is Doctor Who, so I expect everything including the kitchen sink.

I didn't really like Rose, but it wouldn't have hurt to have her guesting.

Re: Billie Piper not involved in 50th anniversary

Of all the characters that I don't want to come back, Rose is at the top of my list. I actually like Rose, but she's one of the few people that actually managed to get a legitimate goodbye. Let's just leave her alone in her little alternate universe.

Some would say multiple legitimate goodbyes!

She said that about season 4 as well

I hope we've seen the last of her though

Re: Billie Piper not involved in 50th anniversary

Rose, Amy, and Rory are three companions I never need to see again! I loved them all in their own special way, but they had their runs and its time to move on. I'd like to see Donna again just to make sure she's doing well (not a speaking role, just Matt watching her from a distant). Martha I wouldn't mind seeing again as head of UNIT or something. Capt Jack, only if he's sporting a bow and arrow.

Producer/Director etc.. of 50th Anniversary special to guest cast: If anybody asks you are NOT involved.

Though I'm not really expecting to see many of the companions who have featured since the shows return.

Re: Billie Piper not involved in 50th anniversary

Captain Jack and River Song need an adventure together. Period.

Of the "old" companions, Martha is really the only one that has any reason to show up again, assuming she still works for UNIT.

That said, Tennant's "final tour" in the The End of Time pretty much gave us closure for all of his companions. There's no necessary reason to re-open their stories.

I like Rose, but I'm not sad if we don't see her. She already had one comeback. Let's leave room for others instead.
