Catherine Tate interviewed in this weekâ€™s Doctor Who Adventures magazine
You canâ€™t have failed to notice that thereâ€™s a new person travelling aboard the TARDIS â€“ Donna Noble, as played by Catherine Tate.
In this weekâ€™s Doctor Who Adventures, out on Thursday 17 April, Catherine Tate tells the magazine about the fun sheâ€™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 didnâ€™t know the Doctor regenerated until Christopher Eccleston turned into David. It was incredible!”
A: “Kneeling in the TARDIS is like kneeling on razor blades! Iâ€™ve got black and blue knees! I got absolutely battered during the first episode. David wants to do all his own stunts, though!”
If she could really time travel, would Catherine go and meet herself in the pastâ€¦?
“If someone came in now and said, â€˜Hi, Iâ€™m you at 50!â€™ you wouldnâ€™t say, â€˜Oh, go on, take a seat!â€™ I canâ€™t answer without my head exploding!”
