I’m really not sure how I feel about this.
Actress Billie Piper is to return to Doctor Who, the BBC has confirmed.
She will star in three episodes of the sci-fi drama, reprising her role as the Doctor’s companion, Rose Tyler.
Rose’s return will mean the Doctor has three assistants in next year’s series – Donna, played by Catherine Tate, and Freema Agyeman as Martha.
I don’t dislike the character of Rose as much as many people seem to. I just think it goes against the idea of Doctor Who to have companions leaving and returning so quickly. She’s only been gone for a year. Doctor Who is about the Doctor. Companions come and go. They’re less important. The audience shouldn’t get too attached to them.
But we’ll see how it goes. Maybe it’ll work out ok.
