Actress Billie Piper is to leave Doctor Who at the end of the current series.

I trust that David Tennant will be staying. You've got to have some continuity, doncha know?

Yep.

I think Piper has done a surprisingly good job with the Rose character (quite made her name), but the whole romantic subplot has got a bit overbearing, and the only way to get rid of that is to lose either Rose, or the current Doctor.

Tennant's Doctor is a smidgeon too frivolous for me - if only we could ross him with Ecclestone.

Hmm, I think Jonathan is camper.

On the other hand, that would be wossing him.

It's just not grabbing me the way it should. I missed the first part of the most recent two-parter and I didn't even care enough to catch the repeat. More than half the episodes come across as standard soap opera plots - and I really really dislike soaps :/

Agree on both points.
I'm a bit sad though too - apart from the factv that romance is getting abit Ross/Rachel, I like having a young spunky independent companion - I hope we don't get some kind of opposite reaction next time.. Alsoif Rose dies will we have a grieving doctor for a season like Willow when Tara died. That would be odd, to say the least..
