Disney XD have today announced that Catherine Tate will be starring alongside David Tennant in DuckTales, but their relationship won't be anything like their on screen partnership in Doctor Who, as this time the pair are cast as enemies!
Catherine can first be heard in action as the wicked Magica de Spell in Saturday's episode "Terror Of The Terra-Firmians!"
Magica was one of Scrooge’s major foes in both the comics as well as the original DuckTales series and Catherine Tate will continue to voice the Sorceress of Shadows on a recurring basis in the new show. In previous versions, Magica was obsessed with stealing Scrooge’s No. 1 Dime so she could give herself the Midas Touch. This time, it appears she’s driven by revenge and she’ll use her niece Lena to infiltrate the McDuck family and get to Scrooge.
Watch a clip from the episode below:
Based on the Emmy Award-winning series treasured by a generation of viewers, Disney XD's animated comedy-adventure series DuckTales chronicles the high-flying adventures of Duckburg's most famous trillionaire Scrooge McDuck (voiced by David Tennant), his mischief-making triplet grandnephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie (Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan), temperamental nephew Donald Duck (Tony Anselmo) and the trusted McDuck Manor team: big-hearted, fearless chauffeur and pilot Launchpad McQuack (Beck Bennett), no-nonsense housekeeper Mrs. Beakley (Toks Olagundoye) and Mrs. Beakley's granddaughter, Webby Vanderquack (Kate Micucci), resident adventurer and the triplet's newfound fierce friend.
DuckTales continues on Disney XD tomorrow.
