Grammy Award winning singer confirmed to appear alongside new Doctor

Foxes is set to appear in the next series of Doctor Who.

The singer, who released her debut album ‘Glorious’ earlier this year and also picked up a Grammy alongside Zedd for their collaboration ‘Gravity’, has said she “can’t believe” that she will appear in series 8 when it returns to TV screens later this year.

Speaking about her casting, the singer (real name Louisa Rose Allen) explained how she came to be cast in the show: “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.

Meanwhile, Doctor Who writer 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.”

Doctor Who returns to BBC1 in August. As previously reported, comedian Frank Skinner has also been cast in the show. Details of Skinner’s character have yet to be revealed but he will appear alongside Peter Capaldi in an episode being written by Jamie Mathieson.
