Welcome to Billie Piper Online, your number one resource dedicated to bringing you all the latest on the talented British actress since 2005. Probably most known for her role as Rose Tyler in Doctor Who or Hannah Baxter in Secret Diary of a Call Girl, you can now see her in crime thriller City Of Tiny Lights & upcoming projects include gothic fairytale Beast and crime mini-series Collateral! We are here to offer you a daily dose of everything Miss Piper, including news, interviews, photos & more!
Set over the course of four days, the four-part drama explores the spiraling repercussions surrounding the fatal shooting of a pizza delivery man. Refusing to accept this is a random act of senseless violence, tough and single-minded Detective Inspector Kip Glaspie is determined to discover if there is a darker truth.
A musical film is my idea of heaven. You can pre-record, you don’t have to sing live. Singing live was the bit I hated the most. I never felt like a confident singer.

178 HD captures from episode one of Collateral have been added to the gallery. What did you all think of the start? It’s great to see Billie playing a very different character than her previous roles! 🙂
It can’t be — but it is — almost 20 years since I last interviewed Billie Piper. In 1998, the builder’s daughter from Swindon was not yet 16, fresh out of Sylvia Young Theatre School, and the youngest artist ever to debut at No 1. “Why you gotta play that song so loud? Because we want to!” as that first megahit, the one with the spaceship video, went.
What a year 1998 was for earwormy girl-power pop, with the Spice Girls, B*witched, Cleopatra et al. Piper was the most precocious and prettiest pop star of them all. The details of that interview are hazy — it was such a long time ago — but I still remember thinking how sweet, adorable and enthusiastic she was, and at the same time what a curse fame can be when you are a child. A year or so later, we bumped into each other on a flight to LA (in economy class), and a while after that, pictures of her teetering out of the pub with her new husband, Chris Evans, started appearing in the tabloids.
Scroll forward to now, and here the two of us are again, sitting in a booth at the swanky Colony Grill, in Mayfair. Wearing glitter on her fingernails (courtesy, apparently, of her two sons by ex-husband Laurence Fox), a red check jacket from the Kooples and biker boots, Piper, now 35, has hardly aged at all.
Collateral has been confirmed to start airing from Monday 12th February at 9PM on BBC2!
Ep 1/4 – In South London a young man, Abdullah Asif (Sam Otto), is shot dead delivering a pizza.
The detective in charge, DI Kip Glaspie (Carey Mulligan), quickly discovers that the pizza manager Laurie Stone (Hayley Squires), inexplicably sent Syrian refugee Abdullah instead of regular driver Mikey Gowans (Brian Vernel). At the crime scene, KIP dismisses pushy reporter Robert Walsh (Mark Umbers), and is briefed by her partner DS Nathan Bilk (Nathanial Martello-White).
The killing seems professional, but the only witness – a young woman strung out on drugs on the street corner – gives the police a false name and address. Local MP David Mars (John Simm) arrives to comfort his ex-wife Karen (Billie Piper), the customer of the fatal pizza delivery.
Kip and Nathan track down Abdullah’s home, a set of garages, to find his sisters, Fatima (Ahd Kamel) and Mona (July Namir). The sisters are scared and Kip’s convinced they’re hiding something.
Meanwhile Mikey takes a beating from two men he tries to warn about the police investigation. And manageress Laurie returns home to care for her ageing mum… unaware that two shady figures are watching her every move.
The level of violence against women across the world is staggering.
From rape used as a weapon of war, to young girls in refugee camps who are forced to have sex to survive, or women in London who are sexually harassed at work.
These are lines that should not be crossed, and now more than ever we need to take a stand. Every donation will bring us one step closer to eliminating violence. Will you help us #drawaline? Donate & #DrawALine!
Manhattan’s Park Avenue Armory has revealed its 2018 programming, a lineup that spans theatre, dance, and music. The season includes the North American premiere of Simon Stone’s acclaimed adaptation of Federico Garcia Lorca’s play Yerma, starring Billie Piper, as well as the U.S. debut of Ivo van Hove’s adaptation of The Damned.
The 2018 season will kick off in March with Yerma, marking the U.S. debuts of director Stone and Olivier Award winner Piper. Lorca’s 1934 tragedy is about a woman desperate to bear children. Set in the present day and staged inside a glass encasement, Stone’s contemporary staging examines the perils of a life lived online. The show arrives in the U.S. following an acclaimed debut at London’s Old Vic; performances will be in the Armory’s Wade Thomspon Drill Hall.

David Tennant and Billie Piper are reprising their roles of the Tenth Doctor and his companion Rose Tyler in three new Doctor Who audio dramas from Big Finish Productions in arrangement with BBC Worldwide.
David Tennant’s Doctor, portrayed on screen from December 2005 until December 2009, returned in the 50th Anniversary special The Day of the Doctor, with Matt Smith and Sir John Hurt in 2013, and on audio for Big Finish with Catherine Tate in 2016.
Billie Piper portrayed the Doctor’s much-loved companion Rose in 2005 and 2006, returning for a number of stories in 2008. She also appeared as The Moment – which had taken Rose’s form – in The Day of the Doctor. These new stories will be Billie’s eagerly-awaited debut for Big Finish.
Executive producer Jason Haigh-Ellery says: “Getting David and Billie back together was definitely on my bucket list – two wonderful actors who created an era of Doctor Who which is so fondly remembered and brought a different aspect of the relationship between the Doctor and his companion to the fore – love, both platonic and unrequited. It’s great to have the Tenth Doctor and Rose back again!”
Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor Adventures – Volume 2, to be released in November 2017, is comprised of three thrilling hour-long full-cast audio adventures.
The set opens with Infamy of the Zaross by John Dorney, in which an alien invasion of Earth isn’t quite what it appears to be – Camille Coduri guest stars as Jackie Tyler.
In the second adventure, Sword of the Chevalier by Guy Adams, the Doctor and Rose arrive in Slough in 1791 and encounter Chevalier D’Eon, an enigmatic ex-spy who has lived their life as a woman. Together they must fend off alien slavers, who have come to Earth to abduct valuable humans.
Finally, in Cold Vengeance by Matt Fitton, the TARDIS arrives on Coldstar, a vast frozen food asteroid in deep space. But there is something sinister defrosting in the network of storage units… the Doctor’s old enemies the Ice Warriors! Nicholas Briggs plays Ice Lord Hasskor and Warrior Slaan.
