Catherine Tate who played the role of Donna, the runaway bride from the 2006 Christmas special, will play Doctor Who’s newest companion in the BBC’s upcoming fourth season of Doctor Who.
Freema Agyeman who took over the role of Who’s companion from Billie Piper for the fourth season, will return in the middle of the coming season.
Tate will join star David Tennant for the complete 13-week run of the new season, which is due to begin filming in Cardiff, Wales, later this month.
The fourth season of Doctor Who is due to debut on BBC One in spring 2008. A Christmas special starring Tennant and Australian pop diva Kylie Minogue will air in December in the United Kingdom.
