David Tennant’s recent Wizard World Comic Con Raleigh appearance produced a wealth of amazing fandom related items but the Radio Times reported on another one we thought you might be interested in.

“Rose was a girlfriend, even if they didn’t say it,” Tennant told the audience about his on-screen relationship with Billie Piper’s character Rose Tyler. Excuse me for a minute.

The appearance marks the first time Tennant and Piper have been on stage together in the U.S. at a fan event. Further, while Piper has been a guest at cons in the states, this is only Tennant’s third North American convention ever (the second was Wizard World Raleigh Comic Con last weekend, and the first was his 2009 panel at San Diego Comic-Con — which was more of a media appearance, and didn’t include autograph and photo opportunities).

They also added, “Organizers for Wizard World Comic Con additionally shared that Piper would only be appearing on Sunday, so the duo’s panel will be held that day.”

I haven’t been down to WW Philly in a few years, I guess it’s time to make the trip again. Carpool, anyone?
