Smith Wants Rose Back for 50th Anniversary
Matt Smith has revealed he would like to see Rose Tyler (Billie Piper) return for the 50th anniversary.
He said: “If I wanted a companion from the past I would say Rose because I am good friends with Billie.”
Meanwhile, in another interview, executive producer Caroline Skinner promised big things are planned for 2013: “I think next year is going to be a really enormous year of storytelling. I’m thrilled about the plans that are coming together…The challenge is to make the 50th as huge an event as we possibly can, because it’s Doctor Who, and the fans deserve it. I can’t tell you what we’re going to do, but it’s going to be really, really big. Who needs sleep anyway?”
Skinner also spoke to Digital Spy about An Adventure in Space and Time, the recently announced docudrama chronicling the beginnings of Doctor Who.
“I just read the first draft of the script this morning and it’s such a beautiful character piece. It’s something that Mark Gatiss has been wanting to write for the best part of a decade and it’s a fabulous story,” she said.
“There are so many things that the fans will love about the origins of Doctor Who, but also the characters who made it are just such extraordinary people. It’s something that will be a joy to bring to life.”
