Keeley Hawes Cast as Series 8 Villain Ms Delphox

Actress Keeley Hawes (Ashes to Ashes, Line of Duty) is to star in Series 8. Hawes will play Ms Delphox, a powerful out-of-this-world character with a dark secret and will face Capaldi and Coleman when they arrive on a strange and puzzling planet.

Hawes commented: “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.” Current showrunner Steven Moffat added that she will play a "banker"

Lead writer and executive producer, Steven Moffat, added: “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.”

The episode, written by Steve Thompson and directed by Douglas Mackinnon, is set to air in the autumn this year.
