What can you tell us about Penny Dreadful?

“I’m playing Brona Croft…. The thing is we only get two episodes at a time and obviously we’re sworn to secrecy, but it’s great, though I am endlessly scuppered when it comes to answering questions. The gist of it is there are iconic literary figures in Victorian London and it has supernatural elements a lot of it is about people discovering who they are and how they come together”

It’s described as psycho sexual…

“Who describes it as that?” BTRC: Wikipedia “I don’t know what that means, it is beautifully poetic, its smart but it’s also highly sexed [laughs]”

Are you looking forward to working with some of the big Hollywood talent?

“Yeah, and they’re really nice so that’s a relief!”

You play some really strong female characters such as Rose in Doctor Who, Belle etc.. do you think it’s important for TV to showcase females like this?

“I think it is important but I also think it’s important and necessary to show women for who they are which is also vunerable and emotional and mad. Instead of just showing women who are like’ I work I have kids I can do EVERYTHING’ I feel like that’s a bad representation, it can be done but not without enormous levels of stress, so I think that’s more important than showing ballsy women”

You’re back in Doctor Who, are you looking forward to the reaction?

“I am looking forward to it, I am looking forward to people being able to watch it! There’s so much anticipation and speculation and it’s going to be good to suddenly see it”

How does it feel to know out of all the characters and companions Rose was the one asked back?

“It’s always really lovely when they ask you back, and I’m always incredibly flattered and amazed that they still care! [laughs]”

We will be seeing you on stage in 2014?

“I really want to, I really miss it, it’s good to get time with my kids again in the evenings but I do miss it, I miss it a lot”

Billie Piper is set to star in the book to screen series Penny Dreadful in 2014 and is joined by talent such as Josh Hartnett, Helen McCrory and Eva Green.

‘Some of literature’s most famously terrifying characters, including Dr. Frankenstein and his creature, Dorian Gray and iconic figures from the novel Dracula. become embroiled in Victorian London’

Doctor Who launched my acting career. I was in this awful transitional period, going from singing to acting, so getting the part of Rose Tyler felt like a real vote of confidence. I’m not sure the fans were as happy – loads seemed hacked off, as they often are about change – but they soon seemed to accept me. I’ve signed quite a few fans’ bodies over the years, but my fan mail has been very gentle: these are smart people, with sci-fi intellects.

At first, I didn’t know whether the show was going to be a success or die a death. It was such a hard shoot: nine months, with pretty much everyone using CGI for the first time. There were times when I thought, “Is this ever going to pay off?” But it did. I remember being in a London hotel for the launch of the first episode. There was such a buzz; it was thrilling. I called a friend and said, “I’m going to remember this feeling for the rest of my life.”

I loved the character of Rose; the fact that she was a girl who went from a small, domestic life to experiencing time travel with this strange guy. She was both strong-willed and vulnerable. I think that’s a really healthy representation of women. Instead of showing a female character endlessly striving towards perfection, here we saw a range of genuine female reactions. The show seemed to say, it’s OK to cry, it’s OK to question yourself, and it’s OK to be excited about someone else coming up with a great idea.

I’ve had some discussions recently with a friend who is convinced the next Doctor needs to be a woman. I don’t think he does. I like that he’s a man and that he has his little time-travelling mate. You see what’s important in that kind of relationship: what a man can offer, what a woman can offer. It’s OK to feel small against this enormous male character. It’s actually quite romantic.
