British hit Foxes will guest-star in new Doctor Who season
The BBC hit-series has had its share of British talent take a guest-spot or two on Doctor Who in the past, but this year the show will bring on singer-songwriter Foxes to both act and sing.
The BBC confirmed today that Foxes (shown above, no relation sadly) will perform a song and take a guest role on the upcoming new series of Doctor Who, which is set to begin this August on BBC One. “I can’t believe I’m actually going to be in an episode of Doctor Who! Especially as it all came about from a chance meeting. I was playing a gig and got chatting to the show’s production team who’d been watching my performance. I was telling them how much I loved Doctor Who and next thing they invited me to be on it. I couldn’t think of a better place to make my acting debut than on one of the UK’s most iconic shows!” Foxes told the BBC when the news was announced earlier today.
The popular singer has a Grammy under her belt and a tour well underway across the Atlantic. Her new album ‘Glorious’ debuted at number 5 following her hit three tracks “Youth, Let Go For Tonight and Holding Onto Heaven”. The lead writer and EP of the show, Steven Moffat, stated “We are completely thrilled that the amazingly talented Foxes is joining us on board … well, you’ll see. Let’s just say, the Doctor is finally catching up on his phone calls.” Other guest-stars for this season are Frank Skinner, Ben Miller, Tom Riley, Keeley Hawes and Hermione Norris.
The new Doctor, Peter Capaldi, and his companion Jenna Coleman will premiere in just a few weeks on BBC One this August.
