Catherine Tate has confessed she can't see herself making a return to 'Doctor Who' as her character's - the Time Lord's companion Donna - storyline doesn't leave room for her to reappear

Catherine Tate "can't see" herself returning to 'Doctor Who'.

The 'Nativity 2' actress has ruled out a return to the BBC One sci-fi series - in which she starred as the Doctor's companion Donna - claiming it wouldn't make sense storyline-wise if her character were to reappear.

She said: "Unfortunately I think Donna's storyline would prevent her from coming back, because any memory of the Doctor, of her time travelling with him, and the adventures she embarked on, would kill her.

"So I can't see a storyline being able to bring her back."

However, the 46-year-old comedienne insists she is keen to work with David Tennant - who was starring as the titular Time Lord during her time on the show and with whom she also appeared in a theatre production of 'Much Ado About Nothing' - again.

During a Q&A with the Guardian newspaper, she said: "Yes, working with David is the best. We get on so well and it's just always so much fun.

"I don't know how to describe it - it's just something that clicked when we first started working together from day one on 'The Runaway Bride' and hopefully will continue to."

Meanwhile, Catherine confessed she is a fan of Peter Capaldi, who took over the role of the Doctor earlier this year.

She added: "I think Peter is wonderful in the role, and I'm really enjoying the eighth season. He's a fantastic actor, and his wit and intelligence shines."
