"Dr. Who" Spinoff Cancelled
I saw this headline and assumed they meant the spinoff featuring out actor John Barrowman as bisexual adventurer Captain Jack. But no, show runner Russell T. Davies is referring to a secret spinoff involving Billie Piper, who played Rose, the Dr.'s sidekick for two seasons. He rightly understood that a series showing Rose having adventures AFTER her time with the Dr. would spoil the premise of the show, even if it meant his turning down buckets of money. Besides, one spinoff from the series is plenty.
