Letting its tenuous grip on the realities of an actual American office slip even further the US version of The Office has decide to buck downsizing and hire another worker in lovely form of Donna Noble herself Catherine Tate who’ll be reprising her role Nellie Bertram, the misguided special projects manager.
Let hilarity ensue!
Tate was first seen in The Office at the end of what should have been its last series as one of the candidates looking to replace outgoing manager Michael Scott (Steve Carell).
In an exciting series of
credibility robbing celebrity guest shots events Scott was eventually replaced by Robert California (James Spader) who – as we’re promised by executive producer Paul Lieberstein – will be sharing a ‘less than professional’ relationship with Bertram (wooooo!)
“Catherine is hysterical”
…commented Lieberstein hysterically.
I suppose the only hope now is that this is all some sort of Doctor Who cross over where Tate and the Tenth Doctor land the TARDIS at Dunder Mifflin and reveal that it’s actually a clever virtual reality thought experiment designed to cater to audiences core beliefs in worthwhile comedy before cruelly hobbling their ‘faith’ with celebrity guests and tired office romances.
