Planet of the Facts #11: Rose Tyler Earth Defence

articleimageTV_058FACT No.11: Rose Tyler Earth Defence

After Rose (Billie Piper) was written out of Doctor Who at the end of Series 2 ‘Doomsday’, Russell T Davies considered giving the character her own 90-minute spin-off production, Rose Tyler: Earth Defence, with the possibility of such a special becoming an annual Bank Holiday event.

Although the special was officially commissioned, Davies changed his mind and decided that such a return, wherein the audience would be able to see Rose when the Doctor could not, would spoil her final scenes in Doctor Who. The production was consequently cancelled.
