It also reportst she will also be appearing in three episode of Torchwood. Any guesses on which characters she’ll be sleeping with?

Oops. We were cleaning out the sub queue and duplicated an old story. Mea culpa

    Old news
    I thought we already knew all this. She’s going to Torchwood, and coming back, and ‘The Bride’ is the new companion.

      Yup.. when I actually posted this to b42 it was actually news. I’m a little surprised to see it pop up now.

    Catherine Tate?
    I understood that the news was (several weeks back) that the new companion for the New Who’s fourth season would be Catherine Tate, otherwise known as Donna Noble, or The Runaway Bride. Has this now be changed?

      No, it seems like a backlog of ‘submitted’ articles just made it to B42’s front page.

      (No disrespect intended, I love this site and can easily see something like that happening.)

        That’s exactly what happened. If it’d been me doing the sub queue I would have picked up on the duplication, but we can’t all keep up with everything posted here. So sorry about any confusion, but we are going to see Donna Noble and Martha Jones together in the TARDIS.

        That could get messy.

          Yep.

          I’m trying to write a novel (no, really), and haven’t had the time to read everything at B42– usually I do. The work-in-progress is a tongue-in-cheek fantasy set in the present. I’ve read bits of it at Cons to positive response.

          On the other hand, this "Old News" has generated more discussion than many a recent piece– even if the discussion is along the lines of– Yeah, uh, thanks for the "news"!
