Billie Piper Leaving Doctor Who

Out of the show but still in our dreams.
The guys on The Late Licence are going to have a field day taunting me with this one. According to a BBC announcement last night (this morning?), the Doctor will be losing his Rose.

Billie Piper has revealed that she will not be returning for a third season of Doctor Who, which has not yet begun filming.

Some American fans watching Doctor Who may be scratching their heads, but remember that Sci Fi is actually almost a year behind. In England, fans have already seen the second (technically, twenty-eighth) season of Doctor Who with David Tennant in the role that Christopher Eccleston just used to conquer America.

In the press release from BBC Wales, Piper commented, "Rose and I have gone on the most incredible journey with Russell T Davies and the cast and crew of Doctor Who over the past two years. It has been an amazing adventure, and I can confirm it comes to an end, for now at least, as series two climaxes."

"I am truly indebted to Russell for giving me the chance to play Rose Tyler, and to all the Doctor Who fans old and new who have been so supportive of me in this amazing role. Thank you so much," said Piper.

Russell T Davies, writer and Executive producer, added: "It has been a wonderful experience working with Billie -- we will miss her -- and wish her all the success in the world for her future. However, the Doctor Who team have had a whole year to plan this final scene and have created a stunning exit for Rose Tyler. The Doctor lives a dangerous life and when Rose joined him on his adventures she was aware of this. With a series climax called Doomsday on its way, I can't guarantee who will survive and who won't, but I can assure you the TARDIS is going on its scariest journey yet!'

It must be. Can we enjoy a Doctor without a Rose? Of course we can. But the depth of their emotional connection, which has actually bothered some long-time fans, makes it seem a little odd that they would willingly split. Episode after episode has hammered home not just that Rose loves the adventure, she loves the Doctor.

Time and space will tell.
