Billie Piper is A Passionate Woman - Tonight!

Billie Piper (Rose Tyler in Doctor Who) returns to BBC One at 9.00pm tonight, playing a young wife and mother who has a relationship with a Polish Neighbour in 1950s Leeds in a TV version of Kay Mellor's successful stage play, A Passionate Woman.

Billie Piper and Sue Johnston star in this period drama based on a secret told to writer Kay Mellor by her mother.

It's the 1950s. Betty lives in a cold, two-roomed flat in a shabby Victorian house situated in a deprived area of Leeds. Her husband Donald is focused on saving to get them out of there.

Betty's sick of struggling to keep the flat warm for her baby son Mark, and she's tired of trying to make ends meet. The only respite she gets from the day to day drudgery is the glamour of the Balula Dance Hall, which she visits once a week with her vivacious sister Margaret. But Betty's world is turned upside down when a handsome Polish man called Craze asks her to dance...

Earlier this week, Billie made appearances on BBC Breakfast and GMTV (Also says what she thinks of Amy Pond!) to promote the show, which you can see here and here.
