The feature-length premiere episode entitled “Deep Breath” will see Peter Capaldi take on one of TV’s most iconic roles as the Twelfth Doctor, alongside Jenna Coleman as his companion Clara.
British singer-songwriter Foxes will perform a track and appear in the new series of Doctor Who, which lands this August.
Foxes, speaking about her casting 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!’
Steven Moffat, lead writer and executive producer, 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.’
Grammy award-winning Foxes has recently been on tour in the UK, supporting her album Glorious, which recently debuted top 5 in the official album chart. This follows on from her three hit singles - Youth, Let Go For Tonight and Holding Onto Heaven.
Guest stars confirmed to join Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman in the new series… include Frank Skinner, Ben Miller, Tom Riley, Keeley Hawes and Hermione Norris.
