Three familiar faces from the Doctor Who universe have signed up to appear in a major new BBC Two drama, it has been announced.

The 4-part thriller, Collateral by David Hare, will be helmed by Academy Award nominee Carey Mulligan, whose one-off guest stint as Sally Sparrow in Blink remains a firm fan favourite.

She willl be joined by John Simm, known for his role as the Master (which, coincidentally, he’ll be reprising in Series 10…), as well as former Rose Tyler actress Billie Piper.

Directed by SJ Clarkson, the drama explores the spiraling repercussions surrounding the fatal shooting of a pizza delivery man in present day London, and filming began this week.

Billie Piper has joined the campaign for a female Doctor by saying that casting a woman in the iconic role would be a “timely” move by the BBC.

Following the announcement that Peter Capaldi will be handing over the keys to the TARDIS this Christmas, the Rose Tyler actress was asked whether or not she would ever consider taking on the momentous mantle of the Time Lord. “I don’t know,” she told BBC News. “It’s a lot of work. But I think it would be great to have a female Doctor, especially given the spirit of the world at the moment.”

She added: “I’ve always said that I support the show’s original format, but then I honestly don’t know where they can take it from here. It would be a snub at this point, I think.”

Do you agree with Billie? Should the next Doctor be a woman? Join the discussion below…

A trailer for Billie Piper (Rose Tyler)’s new film, City of Tiny Lights, has now appeared online for our viewing pleasure.

Directed by Pete Travis, the film is set in the multicultural metropolis of modern-day London and revolves around a seemingly straightforward missing person case which launches a down-at-heel private eye into a dangerous world of religious fanaticism and political intrigue.

The film not only stars Piper, but also actress Cush Jumbo who played Lois Habiba in Series 3 of Torchwood.

Another familiar face is Danny Webb who guest starred as Mr Jefferson in the Series 2 two-parter The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit. It’s released in cinemas on 7th April 2017.

What do you think of the trailer? Are you looking forward to seeing Billie on screen again?

Matt Smith and Billie Piper will both be returning to the West End stage this summer in two separate productions that have been announced today.

As BBC News reports, the Eleventh Doctor actor will be treading the boards at the Royal Court as an obsessive film “Unreachable” by Anthony Neilson, while the Rose Tyler actress will portray a woman whose inability to have a child tears her life apart in a play – based on Federico Lorca’s “Yerma” – at the Old Vic. Both productions will open in their respective theatres in July.

Are you planning on seeing Matt and/or Billie on stage? Let us know if so in the comments!

Billie Piper has been reflecting on her tenure in the TARDIS during a recent interview with Digital Spy.

It has been almost 10 years since the actress bowed out as Rose Tyler at the end of the Series 2 finale, Doomsday, but she revealed that the show’s presence in her life is still as strong as it was a decade ago. She said: “I meet fans at conventions and a lot of them are like, ‘I would watch Doctor Who as a baby with my Mum and Dad’ and I’m thinking, ‘Jeez! I don’t need to hear that!’. Some of them are named after Rose and are now 10 years old. It’s insane.”

She has made multiple returns to the series since her original exit, firstly in the Series 4 finale and then once again in 2010 to bid David Tennant’s Doctor farewell in The End of Time, Part Two. Most recently, she reprised the role for the 50th anniversary special, The Day of the Doctor, back in 2013. “It’s nice,” she affirmed. “It’s great that Rose lives on.”

Can you believe that it’s nearly been 10 years since Doomsday?! Time certainly does fly…

Today – 26th March – is an important day in the Whovian calendar because it marks the anniversary of the show’s comeback back in 2005.

It’s hard to believe that it’s been over a decade since Chris Eccleston first burst on to the airwaves as the Ninth Doctor, but time really does fly when you’re having fun because, as of today, it’s officially been 11 whole years since the premiere of his debut adventure, Rose. The episode also introduced Billie Piper as his companion to form one of the most beloved on screen partnerships in TV history. Now, run for your life!

4015 days later, the world’s longest running sci-fi franchise is still as strong as ever. With filming on its tenth revived series due to start in May, let us take this moment to reflect on how it all began (well, in the 21st century, at least…) as we go back to the start (again, not the real start!) to remember how an ordinary teenage girl’s life was changed forever. With killer shop window dummies. And guess what? We wouldn’t have missed it for the world…
