DOCTOR WHO: SERIES 8

According to a statement from the BBC, Ashes To Ashes star Keeley Hawes has been cast in Doctor Who Series 8 alongside new Doctor Peter Capaldi.

Anyone watching Jed Mercurio’s amazing Line Of Duty will know that Keeley Hawes is having one hell of year – and now it’s about to get even better, as she achieves the greatest villainy yet attempted on Doctor Who: she plays a banker.

Hawes will play Ms Delphox, a banker on an alien world, and the star added, “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.”

As usual the rumours have kicked off early, with the Rani and a female Master being the firm favourites.
