Piper: Rose is "a bit of a chav"
Billie Piper had to focus on acting chavish for her return to Doctor Who, she has revealed.

The actress has already made a brief appearance in the current series and is expected to show up again.

"I had to watch a lot of the old stuff so I could remember certain things about the character, because I've been playing posh birds since I left the programme," she told Doctor Who magazine.

"Rose is a bit of a chav, bless her. I needed to hear the voice and watch the posture and everything."

Piper added: "But then the minute you get on set and you've got Russell T. Davies's scripts - he remembers how to write so well for Rose - you're back there on day one really. Well, I hope! I haven't seen the rushes yet."
