The upcoming season of “Doctor Who” has added a new cast member! Keeley Hawes will join the cast as Ms. Delphox, a character described as being “a powerful out of the world character with a dark secret.”

Hawes is most known for her roles in “Line of Duty,” Upstairs Downstairs” as well as being the voice of Lara Croft in the “Tomb Raider” franchise. Commenting on her role, Hawes, said:

“I am delighted to join Doctor Who and to be working with this incredible team. Ms Delphox is a great character and someone I’ve had a lot of fun playing.”

While lead writer and executive producer, Steven Moffat, added:

“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.”

The new season of “Doctor Who” will see Peter Capaldi take over the iconic role of The Doctor as the twelfth incarnation. Jenna Coleman returns as companion Clara Oswald. You can see the official still of Hawes as Ms. Delphox below:
