Keeley Hawes to guest in Doctor Who Series 8

Keeley Hawes: Capaldi Is “Absolutely Terrific” In Doctor Who

Doctor Who Series 8 guest star Keeley Hawes appears in a new video interview from “don’t call us a supermarket” Marks & Spencer, in which she enthuses over Peter Capaldi.

Cast as Ms Delphox, Hawes – well-known as a star of Line of Duty and Ashes to Ashes – revealed how impressed she was with the new Doctor Who star.

I’ve just finished filming the new series of Doctor Who with Peter Capaldi and, I must say, having seen him at work, he is absolutely terrific as the new Doctor.

Naturally, however, Ms Hawes can’t tell us too much…

I can’t say very much about it because it is shrouded in secrecy – and quite right too – but I play Miss Delphox, an intergalactic banker who runs the most secure bank in the universe.

See the full clip below, which also includes Keeley discussing her first paid role and her love of bric-a-brac (items, as opposed to the old Brian Cant children’s TV show…)

You can also read the full feature on the M&S website.
