A new character for the next series of Doctor Who has been announced by BBC America!
Keeley Hawes, from Upstairs, Downstairs and Line of Duty, will be playing a character called Ms. Delphox. The only information released about the character is that the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) will meet her when they land on a mysterious and puzzling world and that she has a dark secret.
It is still unknown when Doctor Who will première on British or American screens but no doubt more information will be released soon.
Clara and the new Doctor are getting a new friend to join them in the TARDIS. BBC News are reporting that Samuel Anderson, who has previously appeared in Gavin & Stacey and Emmerdale, will play Danny Pink, a teacher at Coal Hill School with Clara. Little is known about Anderson’s character but Anderson himself has said:
“I was so excited to join Doctor Who, I wanted to jump and click my heels but I was scared I might not come down before filming started. It’s a quintessential part of British culture and I can’t believe I’m part of it. It’s an honour to be able to work alongside Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman and I can’t wait to show people how my character becomes involved with such a fantastic duo.”
Episodes four and five are currently being filmed of series eight.

The BBC have revealed Peter Capaldi’s outfit as the 12th Doctor. Capaldi has described it as having “[..] woven the future from the cloth of the past. Simple, stark, and back to basics. No frills, no scarf, no messing, just 100 per cent Rebel Time Lord.”
Moffat has said: “New Doctor, new era, and of course new clothes. Monsters of the universe, the vacation is over – Capaldi is suited and booted and coming to get you!”
The latest series began filming earlier this month and is predicted to finish in August.
