Catherine Tate, best known for her roles in both Doctor Who as Donna Noble, and her own TV series, The Catherine Tate Show, has announced that her new movie will be heading to cinemas next month (March 2022). 

Tate’s upcoming feature, titled The Nan Movie, is set to release in mid-March this year (2022), and will see one of Tate’s most popular characters on the big screen. 

Nan will be heading on an exciting road trip with her grandson Jamie (Mathew Horne, Gavin and Stacey), to make amends with her sister Nell (Katherine Parkinson, The IT Crowd), who she no longer speaks with. 

Nan and Jamie will face vegan arsonists (there’s a first for everything...), angry rugby teams, crazed police officers and much more all make for a pretty entertaining day out. 

The Nan Movie is set to mix Nan’s past with her present, allowing audiences to see what really made her the crabby (yet humorous) old woman she is today. 

In the new trailer, Nan refers to herself as “violent, angry, dangerous” and, given the explosions and other unbelievable events that occur in the trailer alone, we’re inclined to believe her! 

Tate and Horne appear to be a brilliant duo; Horne’s somewhat dry humour and his way of telling it like it is fits well with Tate’s obnoxious, crazy personality as Britain’s favourite Nan. 

The trailer for The Nan Movie, Tate’s titular character is seen getting into all sorts of bother, from going clubbing to trying to get a Guiness at nine in the morning. 

It seems that everything that fans remember of Nan is back, and a whole lot more, as Tate’s talents see her as a very convincing older lady. 

Tate is a beloved comedian, and her run as Donna Noble in BBC’s Doctor Who definitely gave her even more credibility; she is a much-loved British actress, and her forthcoming feature will no doubt bring many fans, old and new, into cinemas. 

The Nan Movie will be in UK cinemas on March 18th, 2022.
