No more Rose
The BBC has announced that Billie Piper is leaving Doctor Who at the end of the second season, which is currently running in the UK. Writer and Executive Producer Russell T. Davies says that "the Doctor Who team have had a whole year to plan this final scene and have created a stunning exit for Rose Tyler." He adds, "The Doctor lives a dangerous life and when Rose joined him on his adventures she was aware of this. With a series climax called 'Doomsday' on its way, I can't guarantee who will survive and who won't, but I can assure you the TARDIS is going on its scariest journey yet!"
That sucks. Her final episode airs on the BBC on July 8th.
Freema Agyeman from a British soap called Crossroads is reportedly going to be in the last couple of Billie's episodes, so rumor has it that she'll replace Billie as the Doctor's next companion.
