Rumours have recently circulated suggesting that Tate could reprise her role as Donna Noble, a character who was last seen in 2010 starring as the companion to David Tennant’s 10th Doctor.
A representative for the actor has denied the speculation in a statement issued to RadioTimes.com, stating: “I can confirm Catherine is very much not in Liverpool and is not on [the] DR WHO set.”
Tate had reportedly been seen in Liverpool on the same day that the Doctor Who cast and crew had been in the city, shooting for its 13th series.
