BBC Announces Filming Start On Doctor Who Series Four

Filming recently commenced on series four of 'Doctor Who' in Cardiff.
Catherine Tate joining the BAFTA award-winning BBC One drama series as The Doctor's brand new companion, Donna Noble.
Award-winning actress Tate is reprising her role as Donna, the runaway bride who featured in last year's Doctor Who Christmas special.
The start of the new series will see Donna tracking down the Time Lord during an alien emergency in modern-day London.
The couple are destined to experience a series of wonderful adventures throughout the new series including meeting one of Doctor Who's most popular aliens, The Ood, in a brand new episode, Planet Of The Ood.
Donna and The Doctor – David Tennant – will also be travelling through time for an encounter with the legendary murder mystery novelist, Agatha Christie.
Agatha Christie will be played by Jekyll star Fenella Woolgar and The Good Life actress Felicity Kendal will star as Lady Clemency Eddison.
Blackadder and Notting Hill actor Tim McInnerny will also guest star later in the series.
Doctor Who Executive Producer and Head Writer, Russell T Davies said: "Visiting Agatha Christie has been on my wish-list for ages now and, for the Doctor, it's a real meeting of minds! Viewers can expect many more ambitious storylines and a whole host of guest stars in 2008."
Mathew Prichard, Agatha Christie's grandson, commened: "What a brilliant idea that Agatha Christie and Doctor Who should meet! Two characters whose contribution to British entertainment is absolutely unrivalled.
"As far as I know my grandmother, Agatha Christie, never saw Doctor Who, but I am sure she would have been intrigued, excited and above all flattered by all this attention in 2007."
Freema Agyeman who has played Martha Jones, The Doctor's companion throughout the critically acclaimed third series, will return to the show to join The Doctor and Donna mid-series.
The fourth series of Doctor Who will air on BBC One in Spring 2008.
The producer is Phil Collinson; Executive producers are Head of Drama, BBC Wales, Julie Gardner and Russell T Davies.
