My friend and muse, Marina, is a huge Doctor Who fan. So am I. When I found out that Billie Piper was coming to Planet Comicon, I didn’t hesitate at buying a photo op. No offense to people who love them, autographs and pics aren’t really my thing, but this was Billie Piper. After buying the first pic, I got a great, and terrible idea – so I purchased a second picture.
We were lucky, not only to be in the first group, but to be in the front of a huge line of fans. Ms. Piper was a total sweetheart, immediately noticing Marina’s chainmail costume and calling her “sexy lady”. After taking that pic I told Billie I bought a second and showed her a blank, white foam board. She asked what it was for, and I shared a picture on my phone of her and David Tennant from Doomsday. Piper graciously agreed, and after taking the photo stopped the line to go to the camera and see the results. She liked the pic, said it looked great, and then gave me an adorable pouty face, confirming that I’m a terrible person. What more could I ask for?
