DOCTOR WHO round-up: Matt Smith & Billie Piper on returning, kissing David Tennant and more

Several snippets of Doctor Who related news for you, all in one handy digest.

Speaking at the Wizard World Con, the recently departed Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith, revealed that he'd be up for a return to the world of Who for a multi-Doctor story. He also had nothing but praise for his predecessor, David Tennant, and working with him on The Day Of The Doctor:
"It was a real historic moment for me. I always look at David and go, ‘Oh my god. It’s Doctor Who!’ David is a great guy and a good friend. It was so fun. Doctors in the same room is just magic, isn’t it! I’ll happily come back for another anniversary!"
Well, 2015 is the tenth anniversary of the shows return - too soon? Naaah, get on the phone and book him now Lord Moffat!

Over at Awesome Con, Billie Piper also revealed that she wouldn't be opposed to returning as Rose Tyler in a Meta Crisis Doctor spin-off:
"That would be interesting… I’d be game!"
She went on talk about her turn as the Moment:
"I think to come back and do something slightly different was welcome for me because I’d come back so many times that even though I loved Rose I thought it probably needed a bit of a shift. And that’s what Steven Moffat wanted, he brought something very different."
Maybe a little too different, as Piper admitted she initially found the role confusing:
"It was quite a confusing episode I thought. When I read the script I was like ‘what?!’ I got it in the end with the help of David though."

Also at Awesome Con, Billie Piper finally answered the question everyone was desperate to know - who's the best kisser, Tennant or Eccleston?
"I think I've kissed David more, So I think we are more practised, more well-versed, and therefore our technique is somewhat better."
Finally! I know I'll sleep better tonight.

Back to Matt Smith, and anyone who had hoped to see him in Moffat's 'other' series, Sherlock, is out of luck:
"Listen, there’s no room for me on Sherlock! They’ve got Benedict and Martin, that’s quite enough peculiar Englishmen for that show. There’s no room for another."
Come on now, there's always room for one more peculiar Englishman, surely?
