The BBC has announced this morning that singer-songwriter Foxes will appear in the new series of Doctor Who – and she’ll be performing a track in her episode.
Foxes will guest star in Episode 8, written by Jamie Mathieson (Being Human).
She commented: “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!”
Executive producer Steven Moffat added: “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.”
Foxes’ album ‘Glorious’ recently debuted top 5 in the official album chart.
