Lovereading view...

I am always wary of celeb autobiographies and even more so when the celeb is barely out of nappies, but this one does stand out as being frank and honest and actually quite well written though she probably didnât write it. That said, anyone with a passing interest in her or in her thoughts and experiences in and around the set of Doctor Who just might want to dip into this in order to gain a greater understanding of this young lady.


Growing Pains by Billie Piper

From her childhood in Swindon to the nation's 'Most Popular Actress', via a pop career and a Las Vegas marriage to Chris Evans, this memoir offers insight into the world of Billie Piper. She has won over the critics and the British public as an actress in BBC productions of Much Ado About Nothing, The Canterbury Tales and Doctor Who.
