I vaguely recall it was originally a money-saving device on The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood (one less prosthetic to buy), although I could be wrong about that. I don't think such doubling-up would not have been possible with the male characters without using split-screen for shared scenes, which would have been counter-productive.

It could be that Moffat and co. were particularly pleased with Neve McIntosh's performance and asked her back. I can't imagine there are that many actresses who can give a fairly emotional performance under such heavy prosthetics! Likewise, Dan Starkey has played several different Sontarans (and in the original series Kevin Lindsay played Linx in The Time Warrior and two more Sontarans in The Sontaran Experiment the next year).
