Catherine Tate British superstar Catherine Tate is returning to NBC's 'The Office' for a multi-episode guest arc. The 'Doctor Who' veteran will play Nellie Bertram, the role she originated in the Season 7 finale.

Tate's character is hired by her close friend and chairman of the board Jo Bennett (Kathy Bates, who will not appear in the episode) to be a special projects manager working directly for the corporate office. According to NBC, she'll enjoy the favoritism she gets from Bennet.

"Catherine is hysterical. We introduced her briefly in last season's finale and knew she had to be a part of the show somehow. We'll meet her again as corporate's special projects manager, and her relationship with Robert California (James Spader) will be far from professional. We're thrilled that she's joining the cast," Paul Lieberstein, 'Office' executive producer and star, said in a statement.

Known for her fan-favorite role of Donna Noble on 'Doctor Who' and her own series 'The Catherine Tate Show,' Tate has won a British Comedy Award and been nominated for a BAFTA.

Look for Tate's character to appear in the second half of Season 8.

'The Office' airs Thursdays, 9PM ET on NBC
