I was one of the last people to get in!! when I got to the door they said no more people come come in so I started crying! and then they let me in. I HUGGED BILLIE PIPER YAY

Sophia Marsh.
Billie Piper had a baby called Winston

my mum says she saw an episode of dr who in the 70s. she said it was about people catching a disease by rubbing elbows. she doesn't remember anything else about it. would anyone know what episode that is?

You know they aren't showing the dr who xmas special on tv in Aussie! How unfair is that!!! We have to wait 'til it comes out on dvd!!!!!

So going youngest to oldest it goes.....Ellie, Harley, Charlie, Billie????

Thanks annonomus. Billie is the oldest one right? Hang on, were we looking at the same webpage?????

i love her

i know billies whole family. that girl sitting next to her with the brown hair is her sister Elle, i used to be mates with her but their whole family is dodgey!! i know everything about the pipers

Alexander Zeniou
I think the book is good and I hope you are goodP.S you so very sexy

Is Ellie her younger sister or her older sister? How much younger are her siblings than Billie??? If you see this and know the answer PLEASE reply

You remember River Song and how she said the Doctor looked YOUNGER, well doesn't that mean she has to meet DAVID TENNANT as the doctor???? I'm not sure, but does that mean she will be returning for a 2009 special?

You know, it's really annoying how Doctor Who is like a month or two behind in Aussie. I did some research and apparently THe Stolen Earth was shown in early July. Whereas in Oz, it was shown in mid September!!!!!!

me me me
Do you think Billie even looks at this webpage?

For James: I Ellie or Harley her younger sister? (PLEASE reply if you read this)

me me me
For jade (quite a long way down the list) do u really know her sister? ellie or harley??????????

Yeah Anna, U live in aussie too. You SHOULD DEFINITELY come to Australia! That would be SOOOOOOOOOO AWESOME!!!!!!!!

i didnt meet billie but went 2 school with her sisters and brother they were a laugh....!!but miss them now :(

Come to Australia Billie! We need you!!! even for a short time!!!!!!!! Aust. is awsum!!!!!!! come down under!!!

I didn't meet Billie but i wish i could. Bill, i think you're amazing. What i love most about you is that you started out as just a normal girl from Swindon and now you have become a superstar who everyone loves. We all make mistakes in life but the important thing is learning from them and that is why so many people look up to you. I loved you in Doctor Who, and now David is leaving as well, it's never going to be the same . I heard about your emergency cesarean (sounds horrible). 26 hours in labour *cringes at the thought*. Anyway, good luck with baby Winston, you're gonna be a great mum. Lets hope he's as good looking as you! xxxxxxxxxxp.s. my dad fancies you :)

Meeting Billie in real life was amazing. She really is all the things Chris describes her to be in her book - and it's true that not many people are as down-to-earth as her in her position. I'd get everyone to read her book because it's so honest I think every girl can relate to it. Not only this it doesn't try to make things seem better than they were - you can tell it comes straight from the heart. I feel like I've grown up with Billie, first adoring her music then loving her as an actress in Doctor Who and Spirit Trap. She is my idol and I would be proud to one day be compared with her (unless it's about the size of my mouth, which I get a lot anyway.)Hopefully I'll see a lot more of her as I break into the acting world, and her book will act as my bible and be taken along with me every step of the way. xPS: Congratulations on the birth of Wiston. You'll make a great Mum.PPS: Emergency Caesarean - ouch! x

With out billie doctor who will not be the same

I'm 14 years old and i aim to be just like you you are my idol, i think your amazing. But i think you really should get together with David tennant everyone seems to be able to tell he's madly in love with you aprt from you (underline the you part lol) Im very happy for you now that your pregnant please please please come back to doctor who x x x

Gemma Little

Sarah Mythen
I am a very big fan of her. And I like her a lot too

it was great

Debi L
I have watched Dr. Who for many, many years and I love the new series but like Sean Preston I do like the original Tom Baker. Rose is definitely a great character in the new series and I hope she comes back. I really liked Christopher as The Doctor but David is okay too. I have recently purchsed the DVD (I'm in the US) and I can enjoy them at any time now.

Sean Preston
No I wasn't at this book signing.I wish to say this.I am in the U.S. and very much have enjoyed the char. Rose on Dr. Who. I am an old school Dr. Who fan. Out of all the Dr. Who's Tom Baker was my favorite.One last thing I wish to say. If this new Dr.Who show continues it must have the Rose Char. in it. She is a must for the ongoing of the Plot. In my humble oppion. Sean C. Preston

If I ever wanted an army of children who would die at my command, all I would need is Billie Piper for a general, and then I could rule the world. Until the US heard about it, they'd send Condi in and she would tear Billie apart with just her teeth - no hands.

charlie (age 11)
Dear,billie paul piper you are a great ater on doctor who but you where super on the empty child and when you meet campin jack did you thing he was a showof? i thing you are pretty and i wold love to meet you.

Mr Simme
Wow! I'm reading Billie's book and it is phenomanal so far-Billie is incredible-such talent is rare nowadays. Both an awesome singer AND actress, Billie will go far!

I love Billie with all my heart, she is the sweetest, kindest most lovely person ever. Though i didn't meet her, no one can love Billie as much as me. Seriously! No one at all could love Billie more than me! I don't physically find it possible for someone to say they love Billie mroe than me as it is not possible. I love Billie and would give anything to meet her. She should be proud of herself for her endless talents. I have a Billie shrine! BILLIE!

Matt Balne
I love Billie, I really want to meet her for a book signing, she's the best. Nobody loves her more than I do, not even her parents! Just ask my mates ... I stopped talking to this kid at my school because he has the same birthday as her (joking, but he honestly does!) I love you Billie and you should be proud of yourself! Love Matt Xxx

I Meet her At the ASDA Signing.She was very polite to Us and seemed very friendly and downtoearth

I only wish I lived in the UK so I could meet her. Love the book, and she is a great actress. Also Sarah (from several posts down) the book may not be aimed at young kids, but I'm guessing there'd be quite a few young DW fans very eager to meet her. :)

letisha williams

annemarie(elles friend)
good to meet some one famous!x

ebecca (12)
I met her in Leeds and she is so nice! She was really chatty and polite.

Ava in Spain
Billie Piper rocks my world ! She is the best person on this earth, She is pretty, is brillant at acting, is very talent and is a amazing singer. She is out of this world. Because i live in Spain, i did not have a chance to meet her, but my friend got her autograph for me.AND SO AFTER SUCH A LIST OF ACHIEVEMENT; IN FILMS, TV SERIES, POP STAR, ACTRESS AND HER TRAVEL IN TIME (DOCTOR WHO) I'M SURE YOU HAVE TO AGREE THAT BILLIE PIPER IS, INDEED , IS THE GREATEST PERSONALITY THE WORLD/UNIVERSE HAS EVER KNOWN AND SEEN ! I think Billie Rocks this earth ! She will always be brillant and there will always be a place for her in my heart. I am supporting her all the way and she will be brillant in every tv, film and acting thing. She is wonderful, amazing, fab, cool , dazzling and is my hero and when i grow up, i want to be like her, she is my idol for life! She is my inspiration for life , she rocks big time. Everyone loves her and everyone will miss her from Doctor who. P.s Good luck in the Ruby and the smoke. From Ava in Spain

Billie is a lovely, lovely down to earth lady. She was extremly sweet to all the people I have spoken to who met her. All this whinging in the press will not will just upset her and her fans. She has offered to come back and do another signing, she didn't have to do that! But it's still not good enough for the minority. I would also point out that Billie's book is not aimed at children so therefore what was the point in dragging children as young as six to her signings?

dale walker
I love you and want to meet you and want your autograph and love your music you go girl bye xxxxxxxxxxxxx dale walker

Joe (15)
Billie was very nice but it would have been better if she could have paid us a little more attention.

Amy (15)
Shes really nice! Very polite and friendly! I do have sympathy for the fans who didnt get as far as meeting her but it has been blown way out of control! thoses who think she should return to apologise for not seeing everyone will be disappointed..she'll probably be too scared to return with the lynch mob which awaits her within her hometown! Shame on you all! It was a good thing for her to return at all and to add an extra 2.5 hours onto what she origanally planned to do! "Billie, we still love you girl! Good luck!"
