Piper Up for Rose/Meta-Crisis Ten Spin-Off
Billie Piper has said she would be up for a spin-off featuring Rose Tyler and the Meta-Crisis Tenth Doctor.
“That would be interesting… I’d be game!” she said at the recent Awesome Con panel when a fan posed the question to her.
Piper then addressed an issue some fans had with The Day of the Doctor – the fact she played the Moment rather than the real Rose meaning she didn’t get to reunite with the Tenth Doctor.
She said: “I’ve heard a lot of that, [fans saying] ‘Why couldn’t you just be Rose and actually see [the Tenth Doctor] and be with him?’”
“I think to come back and do something slightly different was welcome for me because I’d come back so many times that even though I loved Rose I thought it probably needed a bit of a shift. And that’s what Steven Moffat wanted, he brought something very different.”
She adds: “It’s good to watch it and wish that they could somehow connect in the way they used to instead of being totally satisfied. I really enjoyed playing it because I could be a bit mad and a bit strange.’
However, Piper admits she found playing the Moment hard to get her head around: “It was quite a confusing episode I thought. When I read the script I was like ‘what?!’ I got it in the end with the help of David though.”
