The BBC have announced that human female singer/songwriter Foxes is to star in an episode of Doctor Who Series 8. The English twenty-five year old will also perform a song in an upcoming story starring Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman.
Foxes said: “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!”
Earlier today, she told BBC Radio 1, “I filmed it yesterday… it was good fun.” Current showrunner Steven Moffat said: “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.”
Series 8 starts in August, 2014. Visit the Guide to Doctor Who Series 8 HERE.
