“We’re not going to help?” she asked.
He shook his head. “Nope. We’re getting out of here. I won’t breathe easy until I have you away from here, Rose.”
That didn’t quite sit right with her either. “Okay, Doctor. I understand in this case, after what we’ve both been through. But please promise me that you won’t hold back from doing the right thing in the future, just because of me. Okay?”
He looked at her, pained. “But if it puts you in danger…”
“Especially if it puts me in danger. I won’t have you putting me before the world, Doctor. ‘I could save the world or lose you’, remember? And I told you to do it. Always choose the world,” she told him, reaching out and grabbing his hand, willing him to understand what she was saying. Couldn’t he see that she couldn’t possibly live with herself if she made him choose her over doing what was right?

“We are really good mates. I like everything about him, which makes it really easy to be in his company. He’s a sweet, sweet guy. I call him to ask all my acting questions and he always supports what I do.” ― Billie Piper
