According to an article in The Sun, Catherine Tate will be reprising her role as Donna Noble in one of the Doctor Who specials next year. The paper also says that John Simm will be returning to play The Master for two of the specials and that Bernard Cribbins will be back as Wilfred Mott. You can read part of the article below;

Catherine Tate is being lined up for a shock Doctor Who comeback, TV Biz can reveal. The 40-year-old comedy queen, who played the Time Lord’s dippy sidekick Donna Noble, will reappear in one of four Who specials planned for next year.

And fans will be delighted — and a bit scared — to learn Life On Mars star John Simm, 38, is also back. He will reprise his sinister role as The Master — the Doctor’s sadistic rival Time Lord who was last seen dying in his arch-enemy’s arms.

Bernard Cribbins, 79, who played Catherine’s on-screen grandad Wilf will be back as well.

A show source said: “Fans will be delighted to see Catherine back. She was one of the wackiest companions of all time and she brought heaps of humour. And it’s great to have John back — he and David Tennant have a real nemesis chemistry.”

The last episode of this year’s BBC1 series saw the Doctor wipe Donna’s memory and return her to her family. But our source said: “Anything can happen in Doctor Who. His assistants are always recurring and Donna is no exception. When you’re a Time Lord you can go back to any point in history and meet whoever you want.”

They may prove to be true or may prove to be false so at the moment I'd take these with a pinch of salt. Catherine Tate did recently reveal however that if she was offered she'd jump at the chance to return to Doctor Who.

    It would be good for the Master to return but I think its to soon for Donna and Wilf to return. And nice image by the way.

    Well it would be good if this was true, but I doubt it is.

    Cool post, fantastic image! I hope the master bit is true but I don't want Donna to come back as it would take away the sad ending of journeys end.

    I'd love for Donna to come back permanently myself. They left the last episode of the series open for Donna's return with that gleaming ring, which must have something to do with The Master.

Something to say?
