The award winning actress will strip on stage and perform a graphic sex scene with an actor playing a “nerd”. Tate plays Michelle in Under The Blue Sky, a romantic comedy written by David Eldridge.
Tate’s character is a randy maths teacher who beds a nerdy colleague to get revenge on an ex-lover. Catherine agreed to bare all for the role to make it as believable as possible.
Tate isn’t the first of the Doctor’s former assistants to bare all, Katy Manning who played the sexy Jo Grant in the 70s stripped for an amazing photo shoot with a Dalek.
