Matt Smith and Billie Piper… ahem, together

Oh dear, the fodder for all the little fanboys and fangirls.

In the first season of Billie Piper’s series Secret Diary of a Call Girl — just out on DVD in Region 1 and reviewed here — there’s a special guest in one of the episodes: Matt Smith, Doctor Who’s 11th Doctor.

This is long before he was cast as the Doctor, of course. And everyone knows that Billie Piper isn’t really Rose Tyler, but still: tee-hee. The Doctor and Rose.

Okay, here’s the deal. Piper’s Belle has decided that she’s gonna take a break from hooking for a while, and Matt Smith is the handsome clerk at an upscale shop she meets while browsing for a wedding gift for a friend:


There is much flirting…

…flirting…

…flirting…

And then:

Oh my. At least he’s not one of her johns.

This episode featured a line that greatly amused me–when Billie Piper starts flirting with Matt Smith, she gets a surprised expression on her face and the voiceover goes, “Oh no! I’m gonna have to start givin it away!”

she doesn’t look like she’s enjoying giving it away anymore than she did selling it. but that’s often the way.

my lizard brain is still saying, No, no, no, no…. (add in 14 more “no”) this child matt smith *cannot* be the next Doctor.

I wonder if that’s one of the eps they shot when she was pregnant and they had to stick to head and shoulder shots!

Goodness the DW macro community in all their nutty glory had caught on to that one by about the end of day one…

On the reassuring side, Billie has said she liked working with him so much on Ruby in the Smoke that she was the one who lobbied to get him on Secret Diary. Which has to be a good thing, right?

Nah, that’s from series 1, she wasn’t heavily pregnant enough to need body doubles until series 2.
