Steven Moffat describes the character as "a powerful out of this world character with a dark secret. Travelling across space and time the Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and his companion, Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman), will come face to face with the mysterious Ms Delphox when they arrive on a strange and puzzling planet." Hawes may be well known to gamers as she has provided the voice for Lara Croft from the long-running Tomb Raider series. She is also known for her roles as Zoe Reynolds in Spooks (2002–2004), Alex Drake in Ashes to Ashes (2008–2010), and Lady Agnes in the 2010-2012 remake of Upstairs, Downstairs.

In addition, Samuel Andserson (Bedlam) Robert Goodman (Game of Thrones), Jonathan Bailey (Broadchurch) and Pippa Bennett-Warner (Death in Paradise) will guest star in the upcoming series which is currently shooting in Cardiff and will debut on BBC One in late 2014.

That basically sums up every episode that doesn't involve Daleks, Weeping Angels, or Autons... like 90% of David Tennant's run.

@Marvel72

Gaiman has said he probably won't have time to write an episode this year. And with the series nearly done filming, its unlikely he will.

I have tried to get into Dr. Who. My sister and her family love it, but I can not get into it. I have watched a few episodes of the first season, and a couple Matt Smith episodes. Cant do it....

A villainous banker? Good grief. Spare me the agenda of this leftist anti-1% crap.
