Submission + - Huge backlash against Doctor Who companion casting

Artifice_Eternity writes: The BBC have announced who will be sharing the TARDIS with David Tennant in season 4 of the new "Doctor Who": Catherine Tate. The sharp-tongued comedienne will be reprising her role as Donna, the "runaway bride" of the 2006 Christmas special. But neither diehard fans nor casual viewers of the show are laughing... in fact, 64 pages of comments on the BBC's site suggest an overwhelmingly negative public reaction to this news. Will Donna become the new Mel (the Sixth Doctor's much-reviled companion)? Should the Beeb have gone with the more likable Carey Mulligan instead, whose star turn in the recent episode Blink has been widely praised?
