Donna Noble to Return in ‘Doctor Who’ Special
England’s The Sun is reporting that Catherine Tate will be seen once more as Donna Noble in one of the four Doctor Who specials now filming for 2009. Bernard Cribbins will also return as Donna’s grandfather Wilf.
The paper also reports that John Simm will also return as The Master, despite apparently dying in front of the Doctor. Whether he will be in the same special as Donna was not revealed.
Summing up what we know to date: two of the specials are being film in America, likely pairing the Doctor with American assisntats yet to be named. Donna is back for one special and the Master is back for one special which may be or may not be one of the three we know about.
A source told the tabloid that the current Doctor, David Tennant, was likely inclined to sign on for a full season. “David loves filming Doctor Who. The upcoming specials have given him more freedom to work on other projects this year and now he’s ready to come back to film a proper series to go out in 2010.”
