Catherine Tate on ex Doctor Who co-star David Tennant: ‘We’re looking for projects together’

Catherine Tate has revealed that she and her former Doctor Who co-star David Tennant are looking for more projects together.

The comedian said in a webchat with Guardian readers that she would love to team up with Broadchurch star David again, and that they were on the hunt for roles.

She said she had loved starring alongside him since their first Doctor Who episode: “Working with David is the best. We get on so well and it’s just always so much fun. It’s just that something clicked when we first started working together from day one on The Runaway Bride and hopefully will continue to.

“We’re looking for future projects together.”

The pair starred as the Doctor and his assistant Donna in Doctor Who, worked on a stage version of Much Ado About Nothing together in 2011, and David also cropped up in Catherine’s sketch show The Catherine Tate Show.

However, Catherine admitted she didn’t think Donna would ever be able to return to Doctor Who after her memory of their adventures in the Tardis had to be wiped because the powers the Time Lord had given her threatened to overwhelm her brain.

She said: “Unfortunately I think Donna’s storyline would prevent her from coming back. Any memory of the Doctor, of her time travelling with him, and the adventures she embarked on, would kill her. So I can’t see a storyline being able to bring her back.”
