“I thought the story of Rose, which was beautiful, was done. I didn’t want to add to it, I didn’t feel qualified to add to it. That was always Russell’s [T Davies] story. The way Russell ended it in The End of Time was perfect. I didn’t want to stick another bit in. It would be wrong.
But we did want Billie Piper, one of the absolute heroes of Doctor Who, back in the show without interfering in the story of Rose Tyler. I think I might of spoiled something if I had done that. Billie represents the rival of Doctor Who, more than anyone else. It’s all about Billie, it’s her show for two years. It’s really startling watching The Runaway Bride and you’re going, ‘Where is she? Where is she? Where is the star of the show?’” — Moffat (x)
You know, the more I think about it the more I’m not sure it’s a coincidence that Bad Wolf looked not so much like Rose as she looked like a cross between Rose and River
The Mystery Doctor + Rose Tyler in The Day of the Doctor
D’ya know, I actually have headcanons for where each companion shops for clothes (pre- and when not adventuring):
ROSE: Primark, plus she buys clothes from Henriks with her staff discount
MARTHA: Next, sometimes John Lewis if she has enough money
DONNA: Marks & Spencers (mostly the sales)
AMY: New Look, H&M, sometimes independent stores
CLARA: Independent and vintage stores, also wears clothes that once belonged to her mother
Billie Piper as Rose Tyler in the 50th Anniversary Special. ‘Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor’
That is one badass outfit.
Hey, can we all agree we want Clara and Rose to be friends and respect and look out for each other in Day of the Doctor?
Cos I do.
