Catherine Tate Returns to 'The Office' for Major Arc


Catherine Tate Returns to 'The Office' for Major Arc


The former 'Doctor Who' actress will reprise her role as Nellie Bertram starting at midseason until the rest of the season.

Catherine Tate is recruited again by "The Office". After appearing in last season's finale as one of the candidates to replace Steve Carell's Michael Scott as the manager of Dunder Mifflin's Scranton branch, the British comedian will return to the show starting in February.

The Donna Noble of "Doctor Who" will reprise her role as Nellie Bertram, who this time is hired by friend and Chairman Jo Bennett (Kathy Bates) as a "misguided special projects manager working directly for the corporate office who very much enjoys the favoritism received from Bennett." Her arc will last until the remainder of the currently airing eighth season.

"Catherine is hysterical. We introduced her briefly in last season's finale and knew she had to be a part of the show somehow," executive producer Paul Lieberstein gushes about the BAFTA nominee. Dishing on her character, he says, "We'll meet her again as corporate's special projects manager, and her relationship with Robert California (James Spader) will be far from professional."
