Dr Who: the return of Rose

The BBC has confirmed that Billie Piper is to reprise her role as Doctor Who’s assistant, Rose Tyler, in the upcoming series. Her character was a hit and won Piper a number of awards, as well as being named most popular actress at the National Television Awards in 2005 and 2006, but she left the series last year when Rose was transported into a parallel universe. (You know, the usual.)

When she returns it will mean that the time-travelling doctor will have three assistants – Rose, Donna, played by Catherine Tate, and Martha, played by Freema Agyeman. Whatever could he need three assistants for? We wonder if after the slightly false start of Secret Diary of a Call Girl, she’ll adopt a similarly sexy role for the Timelord. A time-travelling call girl, romping her way through outer space? Maybe she’ll be doing more in a phone box than just leaving naughty cards…
