Catherine Tate, who played Donna Noble, ‘most important woman in the whole wide universe’, has stated that she would love to return to Doctor Who in the future. When asked by The Times whether she would consider reprising her role as sassy companion Donna, Tate replied "Yes, I would be more than happy to."
Having starred along beside David Tennant, the tenth incarnation of the long-running show’s main character ‘the Doctor’, both in Doctor Who and in a 2011 theatre production of Much Ado About Nothing, it’s no surprise that the actress responded with “Is there any other Doctor beside David?” when asked to name her favourite doctor besides her co-star.
There has been some discussion between fans about whether it’s viable to have the character return. If we recall back to when she saved the universe as Doctor-Donna when her brain was filled with all of the knowledge of the Doctor, acquired with the Time Lord DNA transferred to her during a two-way biological meta-crisis when she touched the Doctor’s severed hand in the TARDIS.
Unfortunately Donna’s human brain couldn’t handle it all, and so it was imperative for the Doctor to remove her memories in order to save her life. Some fans believe her return to be feasible, while others don’t want her original run to be sullied by inadequate writing.
Would you like to see Donna Noble return? It would take some serious explaining, but wouldn’t it be worth it to see Catherin Tate as sassy Donna interacting with what I can only imagine will be the sassiest Doctor to date, Peter Capaldi? If they could explain away why the Twelfth Doctor looks exactly like the man whose family Donna and the tenth Doctor saved from the fire of Pompeii, that is.
