Ah, poor Billie. Looked like she couldn't wait to get away!

I think "Rose Tyler" had more meaning to Russell T. Davies than it did for Billie or the "fans."

@Anonymous - "I think "Rose Tyler" had more meaning to Russell T. Davies than it did for Billie or the "fans.""

I disagree. For the many Doctor Who viewers who came to the series in 2005 she was the first companion, their Sarah Jane. And she helped to usher in the return of Doctor Who and helped make it work. "Rose Tyler" means a lot to the fans.

The moral of this story - never give a Doctor Who fan a licence to interview real stars. Most awkward interview ever.

Absolutely. Rose was the relatable 'gateway' to the series for viewers who'd never seen it before, she made the show accessible. Imagine if the first companion had been Amy or the show had bogged itself down with this 'who-is-Clara' nonsense in its first season!!
