Billie don't be a hero

Lets take a moment to mark Billie Piper's final moments on Dr. Who on Saturday night...

I sobbed my little eyes out (not literally cos a - that would be gross and b- i'd be blind) as it was pretty devastating final few moments. I won't give too much away here as I know there may be people who haven't seen it yet, but the rumours were true - Rose technically "died" and her last few moments with the Dr. were as heartbreaking as anything i've seen on tv (including the unsurpassable Buffy). And then of course a few seconds of comic brilliance as the Dr. is alone on his tardis, or so he thinks as Catherine Tate (LOVEHER!) appears in a wedding dress leading nicely into the Christmas Special "The Runaway Bride". Just Genius. Ps make sure you check out newlywed Dan's site for a much better write up than this!

I really think Billie has made a huge contribution to this show and it will be a hard act to follow... perhaps its time to go back to the music Billie? She had 6 top five hits in a row, and then of course one doesn't make the top twenty and she's dropped faster than a tarts knickers on bonus night... But my fave song of hers, the possibly filthy something deep inside is still a classic, she covered The Tide Is High and ruined it well before atomic kitten decimated it and even got covered by semi-ace girl group play. Billie Piper aka Rose Tyler i salute you :)

    Never mention her music!

    Her acting is marvellous though and that episode was just brilliant ...

    Why do the gays like shit pop so often? It does not compute in my hose!

    i love "shit pop" - am not sure its because i'm gay as many of my friends straight or gay like all sorts of music, some of which is a bit cack, but i think any music that makes someone smile or have a good time is worth their three minutes of listening to it. Billie Piper Something Deep Inside reminds me of when i met Darren so it evokes good memories for me...

    each to their own i say - i like a bit of billie and girls aloud and debbie gibson as much as i like "critically acclaimed" bands like the magic numbers, scissor sisters and the killers...

    I was being mostly sarcastic with that last comment... I can't really remember any of Billie's music except the first one.
