Catherine Tate on possible return to ‘Doctor Who’ on TV

Posted Filed under

Doctor Who star Catherine Tate has discussed the possibility of returning to the TV series as companion Donna Noble.

The actress and David Tennant will reunite as Donna and the Tenth Doctor in three new Doctor Who audio dramas from Big Finish in May.

However, Donna has not been seen on screen since Part 2 of ‘The End of Time’ in January 2010.

Speaking to Lorraine Kelly in a recent interview, Tate was asked if she’d like to come back to televised Doctor Who.

She commented: “Yeah, and they do tend to find really clever ways of bringing people back that you would think, “Yeah… there’s no way.'”

Unfortunately, she added: “I mean, personally, I think, with my character, I don’t think she could because of the nature of how she left would mean she sort of can’t come back.”

Lorraine Kelly also discussed the possibility of a future Doctor being female, to which Tate responded: “I hope that, yeah… I’m sure there will be a female Doctor one day.”
