Catherine Tate has responded to rumors that she will be reprising her role in Doctor Who and it sounds like she is thrilled.

Catherine played Donna Noble in the fourth season of the BBC sci-fi show and had also appeared in the second and third series.

In March 2021, speculation that she would return in series 13 sent Doctor Who fans into a frenzy after Jodie Whittaker was spotted filming the new series with co-star John Bishop.

The 52-year-old comedian was appearing on The One Show earlier today to promote her upcoming film The Nan Movie, based on Catherine’s much-loved, slutty older character Nan, when asked about the rumours.

During the chat, Jermaine asked Jenas if she could return for the 60th anniversary.

He asked, “Is there a rumor that you might be returning for the 60th anniversary of Doctor Who?”

‘Is there? I’ve probably started a lot of them! But what can I tell you?” she answered.

“No, I wish it were. No one reported if so.

‘I have the same number, I want to say. So if you have the money, I have the time!’

Alongside Nan, Catherine will next be seen on our screens in the upcoming Netflix mockumentary series Hard Cell, directed by EastEnders’ Cheryl Fergison.

Netflix confirmed the news along with the official release date on Twitter, writing, “Catherine Tate’s brand new documentary-style comedy set in a women’s prison, Hard Cell, comes to Netflix on April 12th.”

The official synopsis read: “The rehearsals bring a strange collection of women together as they find their voices, grow in confidence and strengthen their friendships.

“Funny yet surprisingly moving, Hard Cell draws on the comical truth of prison life.”

The One Show is now available to stream on BBC iPlayer.
