PHOTO: Keeley Hawes in DOCTOR WHO!
Here’s what Steven Moffat, “Doctor Who” showrunner, had to say about this picture:
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.
While the BBC had this to say:
A powerful out of this world character with a dark secret. Travelling 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.
And Keeley offered this:
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.
Hawes is a TV fan favorite. In addition to “Line of Duty” mentioned above, you may remember her as the star of “Ashes to Ashes” or the “Upstairs Downstairs” reboot.
