Basically, Billie Piper (Rose) hasnt agreed to come back and do a 3rd season of Doctor Who. The BBC begged her but she said that she simply didnt want to be typecast in other Sci-Fi shows.

This is the second time this news has come out. It came out at first that she wasnt doing any more than 6 episodes of Season 2, now they are saying she wont be back for Season 3. I will wait for some confirmation on this. She is on OFI Sunday with her ex hubby, its on ITV1 not sure what time though. There might be some confirmation on it then

It was weird, the tabloids were saying that the BBC were conducting "secret interviews" of unknowns and if they told anyone, they'd be chopped off the list, so where did they get the news from? they said the BBC were expected to confirm it at some point down the line, but the question still arises, where did the tabloids get said info from?!

I suppose the important thing is that she didn't leave when CE left. A bit of continuity of characters between one series and the next is nice.

This is the original story, from yesterday's Mirror:
http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/tm_objectid=16362073&method=full&siteid=94762&headline=billie-quits-dr-who--name_page.html

This is the BBC's "response":
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/tv_and_radio/4431260.stm

As far as I'm concerned, it's all true. We have a saying, To be silent is to agree. If you don't deny something, it's usually true.
Also, over at OutPost Galligrey, they said that this news is from one of the same reporters who broke the news about Chris Eccleston leaving...

Well, take it any way you want, but it all sounds very plausible to me.

Ah for us who veterans though an assistant or doctor leaving is nothing new!:D

assistants come and go...
it's the quality of their going that rounds out the character.
Adric or Peri as opposed to Tegan and Nyssa.

as long as the replacement is equally as engagin as Rose, no worries.
