I know I’ve got to be spot on. This has to be right for her. Billie’s the kind of actress who gives her lines all the emotions and resonance she can, on each and every take without fail. - Graeme Harper on filming “Doomsday”
Let whoever disagrees reblog this and bitch to their heart’s content, but I whole heartedly believe that there will never be any actors on Doctor Who to play their characters with the complete honesty and intensity as these two did. This scene is the rawest, most heart-wrenching moment I’ve witnessed in television and David and Billie felt every second of the Doctor and Rose’s pain as if it was real. The way they built up to it and talked about it, the look on David’s face after and the way Billie breaks and clutches her stomach because she’s crying just that hard, nothing else comes close.
