Kylie’s in the Christmas special oh zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz………
But Catherine Tate’s the new side-kick. Hooray!
CT will be the Doctor’s 35th (count ’em!) companion, and will be reprising her role as that runaway bride person from last year’s Sanytmas special.
‘I am delighted to be returning to Doctor Who,’ quoth she. ‘I had a blast last Christmas and look forward to travelling again through time and space with that nice man from Gallifrey.’
It’s like, er, not real. Gawwd.
Russel T Davies, exec producer and all-round good egg, said, ‘Catherine was an absolute star in The Runaway Bride and we are delighted that one of Britain’s greatest talents has agreed to join us for the fourth series.’
