Billie Piper Talks About David Tennant, Matt Smith And Returning To Doctor Who

Billie Piper has spoken about returning to the role of Rose Tyler for the Doctor Who 50th Anniverary Special in an interview for Red Carpet News TV.

 Talking at the press night event at Trafalgar Studios for The Hot House starring John Simm and Simon Russell Beale she didn't give much away about the episode, but was clearly thrilled to be involved.

“I don’t know how much I'm allowed to talk about it…I don’t know if I'm allowed to say anything!” she said, coyly, "It's like going home. It's a real gift, you know, that is a gift, that show. And obviously it's a special one because it's the 50 years celebration. You feel it's very much for the fans, and you really feel that on this particular episode."

Billie joins Matt Smith and David Tennant for the celebratory episode along with Jenna-Louise Coleman, Jemma Redgrave, John Hurt, Joanna Page and Ingrid Oliver. Billie has previously worked with both David and Matt before, and said of them:

“I really love working with them as actors but I also know them as people. They are both very different and brilliant people and full of life and character…well, they’re friends, so it’s quite weird talking about them in this way. We’re mates, they’re brilliant!”

She couldn't, however, shed any light on what makes Rose Tyler such a popular companion in Doctor Who and why she keeps returning to the role, “I don’t know what it is about Rose Tyler! I don’t know how to answer that question!”
