Doctor Who News: Ginger Guest Star Revealed for Series 8


Meet the lovely and mysterious Ms. Delphox, who, according to the BBC, will play a villainous banker to Peter Capaldi’s 12th Doctor and Clara Oswald for S08xE05 of Doctor Who. The character, played by Upstairs Downstairs actress Keely Hawes, is “a powerful out of this world character with a dark secret” that will meet the Doctor and Clara as they travel to a “strange and puzzling planet” (BBC). This is the second guest role to be announced in a month’s time. I don’t know about you, but Ms. Delphox reminds me a lot of the Space Nanny, Miss Foster, from S04xE01 “Partners in Crime” with the 10th Doctor and Donna Noble. I wonder if that means anything at all??

Speaking of rumours and conjecture, Moffat recently stated in an interview that anything was possible when it comes to the return of River Song. Oh happy day! We know that River may have met other Doctors in her time traveling adventures. Could she have run into the 12th Doctor at some point and will we get to see it in series 8? I truly hope so.

See you in the time vortex,
