Billie Piper won’t return as Rose Tyler for the Doctor Who 50th anniversary

Some time ago there was a rumor that Billie Piper will return this year for the 50th anniversary, but it was just a rumor. Nothing real, at least not yet.

Billie Piper says she “has not been asked” to take part in any Doctor Who 50th anniversary episodes, pouring cold water on the idea that her character, former companion Rose Tyler, might return to the show.

Matt Smith set the rumour mill turning this summer when he said: “If I wanted a companion from the past I would say Rose because I am good friends with Billie.”  But speaking on The Graham Norton Show, Piper, who first appeared as the Doctor’s companion in 2005 when the series returned with Christopher Eccleston, laughed Smith’s comments off as a joke.

“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.” She said.
