Doctor Who: Billie Piper to return as Rose
The BBC has just announced that Billie Piper is to return to Doctor Who as Rose Tyler. According to the short article, "She will star in three episodes of the sci-fi drama".
For the record, I really like Rose, but I do not want to see her back in the series. That parallel universe was supposed to be closed off - definitely, finally, and for all time. To re-open it makes a complete mockery of continuity in the show - nobody's guaranteed dead, nobody's guaranteed missing, anyone can come back if the writers just decide it'd be fun to trot through the same plots and situations again.
Guh. I know I'll watch it anyway...

I kinda long for the old days when there was no interweb and I would have first known that Rose was coming back when I watched the episode where she returns. God, I remember being on the edge of my seat when Sela was revealed in old TNG.
There is a cheap thrill achieveable by reintroducing old characters in games or shows. Audiences like what they are familiar with and enjoy the anticipation they get from predicting familiar reactions.
Is it possible that she will actually be playing a Rose android or a clone of some sort? :)
Just a thought,
torchwood storyline; london torchwood in pete's world ??why is there a torchwood??, they must be a different doctor in pete's world to have created it, rose needs help against pete's worlds doctor so she opens a crack in the void
rose is the head of torchwood london in pete's world
There are only a very few ways they could make this work well and a whole lot more ways this could go wrong. I’m hoping for the best with Rose's return.
I wrote more thoughts about this on my blog too that you’re welcome to check out if you like.
I think the fact that anyone can come back adds a bit of mystery to the series (as if we don't have enough) plus as a wise man once said "never say never ever"
I think its good that Rose will come back, although Im glad to stick with Donna for now, Marthas something to look foward to and it is said that Rose has to warn the doctor about his past and ive fitted this in with info from a website, that Davros is in the time war and kills the 8th dr, we will
just have to wait and see, but jack, martha and donna and rose are back.
sarah jane and k9 might turn up in the finale as well.
OMG!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVED ROSE!!!!! I CANT BELIVE SHE'S COMIN BK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!
I think they should do Donna
Then have rose back with jack, then a new companion, then Astrid and Jack or a new male companion.
Then new companions.
Astris should come back.
Shame Donna wont be back long. She is so funny!
then sarah jane and k9! Id like to see sarah back for a series. and jack can join thaT ONE SERIES. jACK IS A MUST BRING BACK OCCASIONLY
Astrd and sarah and k9 and martha and rose and donna are must come backs.
How about Grace Holloway? and Lee?
I wouldnyt be suprised if theyd got married and had a kid if they are bought back.
WEN is doctor who starting?
I CAN'T WAIT TILL ROSE COMES BACK TO DOCTOR WHO IN SERIES 4!!!! I HOPE SHE STAYS FOR QUITE A WHILE, I THINK THAT DONNA IS GOOD BUT FREEMA CANNOT PLAY MARTHA WELL, IN MY OWN OPINION. OVERALL, I THINK THAT ROSE (BILLIE PIPER) IS THE BEST!!!!!
can't they have a new companion?
rose comes, goes, comes back.
martha comes, goes, comes back.
donna comes, goes, comes back.
it's getting rather silly.
the next thing will be the dr regenerating back into a previous incarnation.
they should just have a new character, instead of trying to keep the "young-uns" excited with returning actors - if you don't want to leave permanently, don't leave in the first place!
I AM SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!! Why do we have to wait until the end of season 4 to see Rose????? Even though Rose is back, I heard the Doctor and Rose don't meet again- well not face to face anyway :( ...... I was really looking forward to how they react to each other when they meet again too, i was hoping Rose would be his companion again and that they would be closer than ever.....OHHHH well :( nevermind.
OH MY GOSH!!!!! this is soooooooooo... cool! i love Rose and i thought her and the doctor were like the cutest couple ever they are so meant for eachother!
When she left at the end of series 2 i cried! but now shes coming back and i really hope that the doctor gets to tell her that he does love her 2! but having all 3 of them being his companion... ugh oh!
Martha showed signs that she was jelous of rose through out the last season and based on the way rose acted about sara i'm guessing that she isn't going to like martha and donna is loud and speaks her mind... so i have a feeling that there is going to be a huge cat fight over the timelord!!! lol
Hey.... at least you guys have writers. Ours aren't writing.
OMG! I CANT WAIT FOR ROSE TO COME BACK. I LOVE ROSE AND I GREW TO LOVE MARTHA ASWELL AND CANT WAIT FOR THEM BOTH TO COME BACK BUT THE CHARACTER OF DONNA HASNT REALLY GREW ON ME YET :P
I REALLY LOVED IT WEN ROSE WAS INIT AND I WNT HER 2 STAY INIT FOR GOOD !! MARTHA IS GOOD BUT I DNT LIKE DONNA AT ALL ! SHE CANT DO SERIOUS ACTING .. SHE IS JUST MENT 4 COMEDY !! ROSE I DA BEST 1 THO AND HER AND DA DOCTOR R MENT 2 B 2GETHA !!!!!!!!! XX
I THINK ITS GOOD THAT ROSE IS COMING BACK BECAUSE SHES MY FAVERIOTE CHARECTER AND I HOPE THAT MARTHA DONNA AND ROSE GET ALONG ALL RIGHT. I CANT WATE TILL THE NEW SERIES COMES OUT I HOPE IT IS GOING TO HAVE VERY SCARY MONSTERS IN IT. I CANT WATE AND I CANT WATE FOR ROSE RETURNS.
omg if she doesnt come face to face with the doctor =[ i'll cry i really want them to kiss i know they have before but it wasnt the same as it was that women in her body so that doesnt count. i heard there gonna skip a series so its 2010 not 2009 =s weird and there is only gonna be 3 episodes cause of david tennant filmin in some other program or somethin ne way ciao!
btw the skipping episodes was about series 5 not 4 =]
I think its FANTASTIC Rose coming back!!! Shes a great role model and truly a great partnership for the octor. He has fun with her. Billie Piper does a great job playing her. Btw David Tennant is sexy;P
Apparently Rose is Suppose To Die This Time, She & The Doctor Are Fighting Davros From Both Worlds, Without Actually Knowing.
i am srsly confused. i think its crap that donna is the new doctor who companion, i wish it was a celebrity or something... the doctor and rose were meant for eachother!! anyone could see that. (for those that are observant) the doctor loves one companion for every series (almost) srsly
I like the fact that they are bringing Rose back although I heard that her and the doctor don't actually meet because they are in different world's. I hope they do though, it would be nice to see their reactions :-) I am glad Martha Jones is returning, I liked her the best, I thought she did a fantastic job. As for Donna.... well I love Catherine Tate but her character in Dr Who wasnt that impressive, she was funny and I suppose I will have to see her in more than one episode to make a real judgement on her character. Does anyone know when Dr Who starts???? I heard it was 5th April. BTW David Tennant is gorgeous :-)
Yea I like Rose too, but to bring her back sort of is a mockery. I agree...Nice Post.
Many of you say it's a mockery for Rose to return because the walls went up between dimensions after the batte at Canary Warf. You all conveniently forget that before Doomsday when they left Mickey behind after the first return of the Cybermen the Doctor closes the crack in Time and Space. The Cybermen then find a way in Army of Ghosts to cross over, so how much of a mockery is it really that with the resources of alternate Pete Tyler's Torchwood unit they couldn't find another way to reach out to the Doctor when he's needed most.
Rose was and has been the best companion since the regeneration of the series.
Rose is in the new series of doctor who for like 10 secs then disapears!
i hope this episode wasnt classed as one of her "3" it was intriguing- her appearence in this first episode=]
Rose and the doctor don't meet face to face?
Thats a bummer!!!
They were THE best together.
And billie piper is a babe!
But i spose it would be a bit boring and predictable if they met, and wouldn contradict what happened when the worlds were cut off?
But we shall see.
If anyone has anything about the episodes or rose in doctor who, then email me :)
Listen, if you listen in the very second episode with Martha Jone, He says its not completely closed off there is still a small gap, And any The Darleks khan Opened it Using his Temporal Shift But this is a different universe so there Must be more Darleks Right? wont know, Ill just wait and see
i love rose and i hope the doctor and her kiss becoz there meant for eachother and i think billie piper is sexy
About Rose coming back?
What if the Doctor went back in time when the rift was open?
Then when in that universe go to the present pick up rose then go back in time from where the doctor started and they are back in their own universe.
well it is a thought!
i heard that Rose and The Doctor do meet face to face :) cuz if they dont then i shall kill the producers of Doctor Who!!!! Anyway they must meet face to face cuz i heard that Rose saves the doctor's life???? im confused!!!BTW does any1 else think David Tennant is FIT???????? i hope the doctor kisses Rose and tells her how he feels! I hope Rose, Martha and Donna get along cuz that will be kwl! Rose is the best companion ever, Martha was ok and Donna's alrite. Billie Piper is the best actress EVER!!!!(shame she smokes):( Love DOCTOR WHO and DAVID TENNANT!!!4 eva and eva
i really think the doctor and rose will travel forever.they were made for each other
I think that when they bring Rose back, she is going to have to be properly killed off (not that I want that to happen). The writers can't just make Rose say "Oh, yes I can be with the Doctor, but I'm going to choose to not to be with him and go back to the parallel universe anyway" because she is supposed to love the Doctor, enough to sort of die for him, and so she would not choose not to be with him. Grrrr. Annoying problem.
My theory is:-
The Master is coming back, and rose is trying to find the Doctor and warn him.
Season 5 - partners in crime - is rose's 1st appearance - she though she looking for the doctor.
Season 5 - poison sky (2nd part) she appears on the TV link and shouts `Doctor`.
The BBC with either do one of two things -
In the Ep `Plant of the Ood` at the end they say ... soon Doctor your song will end soon - he says, what makes you say that!, they reply all songs come to an end. Considering that there has been talks of him leaving this year - I think the final ep of this season will see the doctor changing yet again, with Rose being there to support him. I also think that she knows what is going to happen to him and wants to protect him - His demise will either be by the Master (who is not gone) or by the new Darleks.
Quote " Rose and the doctor don't meet face to face?"
The pre-season launch showed a clip of Rose standing over the Doctor who looked very hurt or dead - so she does come in.. when.... thats another guess.
I am lead to believe that she will appear 4 times - she has already appeared twice - her main appearance will be kept to the end of this series.
I think Rose should come back she is the best!!!
Donnna's ok but is not as good as rose.
Martha is good but really Rose has to be the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love Rose So Much And happy she Is back
Whilst I have certain reservations about Rose coming back......BRING BACK THE MASTER...or rather, just bring back John Simm. Could he be reincarnated as the New Doctor?????
If the Doctor went back in time & saved Rose, those massive creature things would appear & attack earth. I do hope the Doctor & Rose meet face-to-face and anyway, who actually knows except the actors?
Were can i watch the episode when rose comes back
I THINK THAT ROSE IS THE BEST OUT OF ALL THE CAMPAINES
I LOVE ROSE SHE IS THE BEST COMPANION KEEP HER ON THE SHOW ALL OF THEM
i think its fab that rose is coming bak and quite frankly all of those who are saying that she shouldnt come bak becoz it was meant to be closed forver clearly havent understood doctor who as anything is possible!! i think donna and martha are fab too though...the fact that martha could fend for herself(though rose could too) but martha seemed more independant...and the way donna dont take any of the doctors crap is soo funny and the way shes sort of not interested in him "that" way is refreshing she makes me laugh!! "u just want to mate" " youre not mating with me sunshine" he he
BRING BAK ROSE WOOOOO!!
BILLIE PIPER IS THE BEST DOCTORS COMPANION EVA!!!!!
I DON'T CARE WHAT ANY ONE ELSE THINKS - THEY BELONG TOGETHER. WHY IS SHE ONLY IN THREE EPISODES WHEN SHE SHOULD BE IN THE ALL????
dONNA IS....OK(ISH) BUT I REALLY COULDN'T STAND MARTHA FOR SOME REASON. MAYBE COZ SHE KEPT HITTING ON THE DOCTOR (??) I DUNNO.
rOSE ROCKS. ENOUGH SAID.
I am uncertain about roses return to Doctor who.
It will be great to have her back because she is just unbeatable and will bring back the old days but there are so many different ways it could go wrong and what about catherine tate. I think doctor who has fallen to pieces with new writers and famous people for publlicity, ridiculous
omg! i am thrilled that rose is coming back!!! she is the top companion for the doctor, they are made for eachother! donna is really funny but i dont think it is as good when the companion doesnt fancy the doctor, i think martha was rubbish! her acting was no way near as good as roses(billie piper) i read some other peoples comments and some say that rose and the doctor do not meet face 2 face! if they do not it will not be as good or it wont be fair, i really want the doctor to tell rose how much he loves her and i want them to kiss eachother(properly) if they kiss i will track down the producers and give them a kiss myself!!! lol cya oh btw, rose rocks and billie piper rules!!
Rose and the Dr where the most romantic little duo, plus now the renownedly sexy david tennant is sure to make the best fitting partner for her. I think their story is such a romance and so worth while, who this woman is in "silence in the library" i dont know and in all honesty dont care, i have longed for rose's return and cant wait for her and the Dr to be reunited. i just wish she was more of a perminent fix to she show. They were in love, what more of a story line do you need, i know i would watch it religiously as always!
<3 The Doctor & Rose <3
David Tennant is signed up for the 3(i think it is) special episodes for 2009 and season 5 in 2010 already. so there won't be any changing of doctors any time soon. i just think that 'your song will come to an end' deal is like when queen victora(i think it was her)chased the doctor wanting his head cut off in season 3... just somewhere they can go off of if they run out of ideas.
when davros and you be coming back in doctor who
I think it is great that rose is comeing back she is realy good better than eany one else and she is the best compannan and i am so happy for here comeing back and its been a realy long time and she is having a baby
Yes Im back you may have seen me on the other Dukestreet doctor who boards. Well wasnt that brillaint? Roses return and departure was brillaint. Rumors say thats not the ENTIRE final of her and the human doctors appereances. Apparently BBC want to make a Doctor who movie with Rose and her doctor fighting trouble on their world and the doctor and his current compainon fighting a parrelel trouble in his world
i love rose bring her back
