Piper, who portrayed Rose Tyler in the 2005 reboot, ultimately left the series the following year. The actress went on to a few appearances in the later specials. At the time of her departure, Piper didn’t share the reason why she left. But in May of 2021 the 39-year-old disclosed she quit Doctor Who because she didn’t want the responsibility of being a role model.
In the quick clip shared on September 28th, Piper said she would be willing to go back because she’s has had a lot of time away from the series.
“Would I ever go back? I think if the circumstances and the story were right. I feel like I’ve had enough time away from it to really, really want back in on it. I feel like my kids are at a good age and may appreciate that too, which is often my incentive to do anything.”
Doctor Who is currently streaming on HBO Max.
