British comedy star Catherine Tate is disappointed with her new role in hit TV series Doctor Who - because she has to wear smelly costumes. The actress - who appears in the popular sci-fi series as the doctor's assistant - has to wear authentic period attire from the 1960s. Tate, 39, says, "They smelt quite a lot in the 1960s. But that's the thing about vintage clothing - all very authentic but a little bit whiffy (smelly)."
