Piper vs. Tennant
Soooooooooooo, Tennant agrees to three seasons of Dr. Who and receives critical acclaim for his (leading) role in Hamlet at Stratford-Upon-Avon; while Billie Piper leaves Dr. Who after just over a season and ends up playing a prostitute on Showtime.
Considering these choices, which one holds the more promising future as a serious actor.....Hmmmmm.....
Methinks Piper should have reconsidered and stayed on as Rose until she'd established herself a bit more and was offered at least a role in a 24 or Lost-type series. I really liked her on Dr. Who and was bummed she left the show. I might have checked in with her once in a while, you know, to see how she was doing - if that series didn't have "puhLEASE!!!" written all over it.
While we're on the subject of Billie Piper, can anyone please explain to me WHY she is wearing HALF THE MAKEUP as a call girl than she was as "Rose" in Dr. Who?? I'd SWEAR they kept putting mascara on her week after week WITHOUT REMOVING THE PREVIOUS WEEK'S APPLICATION.
