If anyone should know who would make a good Doctor, Billie Piper should. She was faithful companion Rose Tyler to both the Ninth and Tenth Doctors, and has acted alongside the Eleventh, Matt Smith, in episodes of both the Sally Lockhart Mysteries and Secret Diary of a Call Girl… not to mention a certain major upcoming event…
And although she somehow has never performed with upcoming Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi, she told Flicks and the City that he will do just fine. Well, possibly even more than fine:
“I think it’s brilliant. I’ve always really loved him and admired him. I think he’s a brilliant actor, I think he’s both absolutely terrifying and credible with comedy.”
Piper, who recently turned 31, also likes that Capaldi is a bit more mature in age:
“I really like the fact that he’s a bit older and I think it will open a whole new set of fans. I think it makes absolute sense. It’s a really wise choice.”
Billie Piper can be seen once again as Rose Tyler in just about six weeks time in a little show called – what was it? – oh yeah, The Day of the Doctor. And who knows, maybe she’ll get a chance to properly meet the Twelfth someday?
So, Kasterborites, it seems as though Rose Tyler may secretly like her Doctors a little older–how do you prefer yours? More Smithish or more Hartnellian?
