Catherine Tate on Season’s Greetings

Playing Belinda Bunker on stage in Alan Ayckbourn’s Season’s Greetings has brought former Doctor Who companion Catherine Tate back to our screens today – the actress was interviewed by another former cast member, Andrew Marr!

To complete the link, Tate appears in the play with a couple of other actors with strong links to the show – not other than Mark Gatiss and David Troughton.

In the interview, Tate talks about her character in as well as her unusual, Donna Noble-esque ignorance about the inner workings of Daleks and Sontarans. The chat opens with a clip from 2006’s Christmas episode The Runaway Bride, in which Donna Noble was first introduced to David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor.

You can catch a clip of the interview on the BBC News pages.
