Donna Noble: everyone’s best mate – from her debut as a stowaway on board the TARDIS to her desperately sad departure from our lives thanks to a mind-melting Time Lord meta-crisis; she was the one to rescue the Tenth Doctor from his funk and bring a maturity to the relationship between the Doctor and his companion that had been lost since the show returned.
Speaking of returns, as the past and the future collide in a wonderfully wibbly way this November, Catherine Tate has said she would happily reprise her role as Donna.
Posed the question by TV Times, the Big School actress responded:
“Yes, I would be more than happy to.”
Which begs the question: should she return? With story being the sole important caveat to bringing anybody back on board the TARDIS, Donna’s own sage seemed complete after the events of Journey’s End and to a lesser extent The End of Time.
Besides another cameo or perhaps even a little jaunt with an unfamiliar Doctor (the terms of the meta-crisis might put a stop to that though; there’s nothing like an instant meet cute killer than total mind devastation) might be the sole ways the Doctor can hang out with his mate once again.
Asked besides David Tennant, who was her favourite Doctor, she joked:
“Is there any other Doctor beside David?”
Is there? Should Donna return? Who else would be welcomed back from the RTD era?
