Tate thanks 'Doctor Who' boss for gamble
Catherine Tate has thanked Russell T. Davies for casting her in Doctor Who despite the public's perception of her.

"Oh gosh, I can't thank Russell enough for just making that possible," the actress told the London Evening Standard. "For many people, I'm sure, what a gamble to take on someone like me who is known, by the vast majority of people, for wearing wigs and comedy teeth."

Tate, currently appearing in the play Under The Blue Sky in London, joked about the prominence of her character Donna Noble in the recent season four finale, "For one brief moment I was the most important woman in the whole of the universe," she said.
