There is little doubt that every Doctor and Companion combo has been memorable in its own way. However, most Whovians will point out that there was something truly special about Ten and Donna Noble. Luckily, these two are set for a major Doctor Who reunion. It has just been confirmed that David Tennant will be reuniting with Catherine Tate in a new audio drama.

The good news comes from Digital Spy, which confirms that Tennant will have a special cameo in the audio drama series Donna Noble: Kidnapped. The new series will focus on Donna and her friend Nat as they are "investigating some strange extraterrestrial occurrences following her return from The Library." Although their adventures will be mostly without the Time Lord, the Tenth Doctor is set to show up just in time to help them out.

Tate is understandably excited about Donna's new series. "It's just lovely to come back and do Donna, and especially doing it with Niky, that's great fun," she said. "We're friends, and we've known each other for a long time, so there's a shorthand, like there is with me and David Tennant. It's always great doing audio stuff."

Tate also revealed why she's happy to be doing an audio drama rather than an appearance on the BBC live-action series.

"There are so many big ticks for audio," she said. "You don't have to get up too early. It's always warm. No-one cares what you look like. And it just means you never have to let it go."

Of course, we would still love to see Ten and Donna return to the series. Nevertheless, just hearing their interactions again in the audio drama would be an excellent treat.

The Donna Noble: Kidnapped box set is now available on Big Finish.
