DAY 15 – Favorite Rose Moment
Rose As Lady Cassandra
My favorite Rose moment technically wasn’t a Rose Moment at all. It was more of a Billie Piper moment. It was the moment I realized what a wonderful actress she actually is. When Lady Cassandra, the “last human,” possesses Rose’s body in “New Earth,” we see the mousey, average Rose turn into a sultry, sarcastic version of herself; a version who’s funny and who gets to kiss The Doctor!
And then there’s the part where Cassandra (in Rose’s body), having temporarily occupied the body of a human plague victim and learned the error of her ways, agrees to finally die in the body of her aid, Chip, and we see an even deeper performance from Piper that impressed me greatly. “New Earth” was one of my favorite episodes, and Billie Piper as Rose was one of my favorite things about it.
Also, Rose kisses The Doctor. Hot, right?
