Keeley Hawes to guest in Doctor Who Series 8

Keeley Hawes: “I Can’t Really Call Doctor Who Work!”

The gorgeous Keeley Hawes has spoken to BT about her role as the villainous Ms Delphox in the upcoming series of Doctor Who.

The Spooks and Ashes to Ashes star says:

“I had such a lovely time on Doctor Who. Can’t really call it work, it was absolutely lovely. My favourite part was something I thought I’d never get to do: when the camera shakes. You know, that kind of cheap effect! [Laughs] With the new Doctor – with Peter Capaldi – who is brilliant, and the lovely Jenna Coleman. They were so welcoming. It’s quite nerve-wracking going on to a big show like that. They were absolutely delightful.”

Keeley stars in the Steve Thompson-penned episode, directed by Douglas Mackinnon (The Sontaran Strategem/ The Poison Sky; Cold War). Showrunner, Steven Moffat, previously said:

“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.”

In the full interview, she also talks about the Line of Duty finale.

So – who else is up for some Delphox-y action?
