Billie Piper poll

I declare the poll done.
Q. From the point of view of Billie Piper's career (i.e. not from that of the audience), was quitting Dr. Who a good idea?
A. Yes = 5, No = 3, Billie Who? = 1, From the point of view of Billie Piper's career (i.e. not from that of the audience), was quitting Dr. Who a good idea? = 4

So, a cautious thumbs up for Ms. Piper's career strategy.

I have to say that I am in the 'no' camp. Eccleston and Piper were an interesting starting line up, but I am not sorry we have moved on. I think 'Billie Who?' will soon follow 'Christopher Who?', and she will join the ranks of those who have quit a major series / band / whatever and lived to regret it.
