Who?
 
2013-11-13 02:40:04 PM  
She is awesome in Secret Diary of a Call Girl.
 
2013-11-13 02:42:45 PM  
Who cares?  As long as she's on the screen.

Well, that's a switch! This one has the face of a twelve year-old boy to go with the body.

/yeah-yeah, British pretty & whatnot.

My B.I.L. got that from Netflix last week and raved about it. I just never got the time to check it out.

She is my trailer park version of Kate Beckinsale so ya, I'm good with her.

Hoepfully it's a character who doesn't feel the need to wear clothes.

Considering her acting, she'd better be a Tree of Cheem.

When did "face of a twelve year-old" replace "horrible actress" as the way to not only express a lack of interest in an actress but to imply that anyone who does like her has a problem.

Some of us just like a fresh face, but for those who like a mug with a bit more character:

"but her hair, accent, and clothing were all unfamiliar"

Last time Piper came back to DW after a few years, the accent was off. There's an interview somewhere where she said she had trouble remembering what Rose sounded like after so much time in other roles.

Unfortunately the Beeb had recorded over all the episodes she appeared in, so she couldn't watch them again to relearn the accent.

Is there an estrogen factory upriver from you that leads to twelve year olds in your area having massive racks?

Sorry, i don't watch much TV anymore. I've seen exactly two of the new Dr. Who episodes, and they were when she was the companion.

Billie Piper's acting was never the issue on Doctor Who.  She was fine as Rose Tyler.  But Russell T. Davies for some reason weird-ass reason couldn't let go of Rose Tyler - she hung around waaay too long during the Tenth Doctor's time and never completely went away.  The episode Doomsday should have been the last we saw Rose Tyler, period.  But the Doctor mooned over her during much of Martha Jones' time, Rose kept showing up throughout Donna Noble's tenure, and she was the last person the Tenth Doctor visited before regenerating.

Billie Piper was fine.  Rose Tyler needed to be boarded up and locked inside a black hole.

Maybe Moffet retouched the character so that she was no longer insufferable.

Bambie's wedding vows were fantastic.

I know people who wont watch Secret Diary because you know whores are bad.
Missing the whole farking point.

If you like that, there is a show on instant view called "Satisfaction".  It's Australian Showtime and about ins and outs sex workers' lives at a brothel.

She was a decent companion it's just that we saw too much of her. Instead of just letting her go they just kept bringing her back. She was my first Who companion and I'll always remember her fondly but I've moved on. Mainly to redheads and brunettes in short skirts.
 
2013-11-13 04:26:28 PM  
I never really liked Rose. ESPECIALLY given how she kept stringing Mickey along.

Donna was my favorite of 10's tenure, though I think I also like 11 more as a Doctor. In part because he seems WAY more willing to admit/realize that he is not necessarily a shining force of righteousness, but is, sometimes, a right and total bastard. ... It may also have to do with the fact that I'm still pissed at Ten for not only what he did to Harriet Jones, but apparently *NOT CARING* that she was wiling to give her life so other people could contact him. Even after all he'd done to her, and how much he'd *royally farked* the timeline by that point....

I loved freema in her first episode and last ones. When she was smart and useful. She was written as crap in most of the rest, which was pretty sad.

I tried watching Secret Diary a couple of times.

I think they forgot to...make stuff...happen.  I really wanted to like it, but it just seemed like a snoozer.

 Has to be.

The RL background story to the Kameleon prop has to be one of tragedy and Fail. It was originally intended to be "the new K-9". The prop's creator/operator died shortly after the thing was delivered to the BBC (in fact, the thing was rumored to be cursed a la King Tut's Tomb because of the many deaths of people associated with the prop's creation and operation). No one else really knew how to operate it, which was why it looked and moved like total sh*t on-screen. Eventually they just killed it off later in the series and tried to pretend the character never existed. Peter Davidson has been qioted as being glad the p.o.s. was gone from the show for good.
