Keeley Hawes is a Doctor Who villain…

March 14th, 2014 by Marc Comments

It looks like one of our favourite actresses Keeley Hawes has signed on to one of our favourite shows… woo hoo!

Yes, the very love Keeley (Ashes To Ashes, Line Of Duty and the voice of Lara Croft in the original Tomb Raider) will play Ms. Delphox,  “a powerful out of this world character with a dark secret.”

On playing the role, Hawes said: “I am delighted to join Doctor Who and to be working with this incredible team. Ms Delphox is a great character and someone I’ve had a lot of fun playing.”

According to SuperherohypeTraveling across space and time, the twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and his companion, Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman), will come face to face with the mysterious Ms. Delphox when they arrive on a strange and puzzling planet.

Written by Steve Thompson (“Sherlock”) the episode will be directed by Douglas Mackinnon (“Line of Duty,” “Doctor Who”).

Peter Capaldi will debut as the Doctor later this year

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
