The kiss shared between Rose Tyler and The Doctor in “New Earth” was an unscripted kiss. There was no need for Billie Piper to kiss David Tennant in the scene, but she still went for it. You can see that this was obviously surprising to David Tennant judging by the look on his face. They also talk about it in the audio commentary:
David: That’s me kissing Billie Piper. Russell: Hurray. David: Yeah. Russell: Completely unscripted they just- David: I know, she just couldn’t help herself. [x]
“Draw the background” they said, "It will be fun” they said. Oh god, it wasn’t fun at all, I’m so so tired of this, but I just had to draw the Tardis interior by myself. Doctor and Rose deserve the best.
Oh savallah, the days I’ve spent with this image, floating in my mind, because of You and this damn rpg. You have no idea. It belongs to You, along with my heart and soul.
If anyone was wondering, which galaxy is behind the Tardis, it’s this one, obviously. Is there any other?
I may have made this more shippy then I should have. But I honestly couldn’t help it. I happened to find the perfect secret life pictures of Billie to go along and I just had to make it as shippy as possible. Especially with a fantastic kiss!
I enjoy painting these ‘domestic’ moments between Rose and Tentoo. Here, she said something brilliant with that beautiful smile, so he just had to give her a kiss, murmuring against her hair how much he loves her.
Journey’s End Episode Kiss(left) vs Doctor Who Confidential Kiss(right):
I remember reading somewhere that Russell T. Davies didn’t want the kiss in Journey’s End to be too overly passionate because of the situation they were in. Which makes sense because Rose is definitely still confused about everything that’s happened and she’s still unsure about the New, New, New Doctor and it’s almost like she’s taken right back to that moment the first time she saw him regenerate, when she had to get to know him all over again, so she’s still quite skeptical in that aspect.
I do however think that by using the bit in the third gif down on the right, it would have allowed the Part Human Doctor’s emotions show just a little bit more. I mean you cut to the full Time Lord and you see how emotionally gutted he’s feeling at that moment. I mean, yes he’s comforted in knowing part of him will always be with her but he also knows that he’s never going to see her again and that pain is so unbearable all he can do is turn away.
Cut back to that third gif down on the right and you can see that there’s a bit of desperation in the way The Part Human Doctor is kissing Rose. At one point she even starts to pull back, but he tightens his hold and she melts back into the kiss as he dips her backwards. To me that just says a lot about his character’s evolvement because he’s finally allowing himself to have what he’s always so desperately wanted but never thought he could have and you can just see based on his body language that he’s finally letting some of those barriers down and giving in to his desires.
Happy international kissing day everyone! Here is a bit of Tentoo and Rose fluff to celebrate.
Rose awoke slowly to the feeling of lips trailing across the
skin of her bare belly. Hands pushed her shirt up further, then the lips
pressed kisses along the underside of her breasts.
She moaned and rolled over onto her back.
“Morning,” he murmured into her skin. “Today’s a very
“Hmm?” Rose wracked her brain to try and first figure out
the date, and then to determine its importance. Their anniversary? No, that had
been yesterday. Heat flared in her belly at the memories of how they’d spent
the anniversary of the day she’d gotten her Doctor back, and the memories added
to the current heat pooling in her gut.
“It’s international kissing day,” he whispered, sucking a
nipple into his mouth. “The best holiday there is. And how better to spend it
than kissing every inch of your gorgeous body?”
Rose moaned and arched into his lips, before she buried her
fingers into his hair and tugged his face up to hers.
“Well, don’t leave me out of the celebrations,” she purred, and
she pulled his lips to hers for the first of many kisses on this glorious
