Doctor Who Adventures 60

Catherine Tate interviewed in this week’s Doctor Who Adventures magazine

You can’t have failed to notice that there’s a new person travelling aboard the TARDIS – Donna Noble, as played by Catherine Tate.

In this week’s Doctor Who Adventures, out on Thursday 17 April, Catherine Tate tells the magazine about the fun she’s having playing the character.

Did she watch Doctor Who when she was growing up?

“No! I remember the theme tune but it was never as interesting to me as Basil Brush. I didn’t know the Doctor regenerated until Christopher Eccleston turned into David. It was incredible!”

About stunts…

A: “Kneeling in the TARDIS is like kneeling on razor blades! I’ve got black and blue knees! I got absolutely battered during the first episode. David wants to do all his own stunts, though!”

Doctor Who Adventures 60If she could really time travel, would Catherine go and meet herself in the past…?

“If someone came in now and said, ‘Hi, I’m you at 50!’ you wouldn’t say, ‘Oh, go on, take a seat!’ I can’t answer without my head exploding!”

Read the whole interview in his week’s Doctor Who Adventures magazine. Free with this week’s issue is a deadly Dalek pen and notepad and the second part of a massive double-sided poster – inside the TARDIS on one side, and the monsters of series two on the other.
