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 Superherohype: Traveling 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
