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 â€œhas not been askedâ€ to take part in any Doctor Who 50thÂ 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: â€œIf I wanted a companion from the past I would say Rose because I am good friends with Billie.â€Â But speaking on The Graham Norton Show, Piper, who first appeared as the Doctorâ€™s companion in 2005 when the series returned with Christopher Eccleston, laughed Smithâ€™s comments off as a joke.
â€œNo.Â Iâ€™ve not been asked.Â I think Matt Smith said something in passing or in jest like, â€˜That would be nice,â€™ and it became something, but no.â€ She said.
