Fans of Doctor Who already had a lot to love about Disney XD’s DuckTales reboot, but the latest addition to the cast certainly gives them more to cheer about. Catherine Tate, who portrayed Donna Noble on Doctor Who, has joined the cast of the series that already stars David Tennant (the Tenth Doctor).
Tate lends her voice to the role of villainess Magica De Spell, who first appeared in the episode “Terror of the Terra-Firmians.” Magica first appeared in the Carl Barks comic books and later showed up in the 1980s cartoon series as well as in the NES video game based on the show.
Given the character’s established history, it’s safe to say that fans will be seeing plenty of Magica (and hearing plenty of Tate’s voice) in upcoming episodes. DuckTales airs on Disney XD, with new episodes premiering on Saturdays.
