On her casting, Foxes 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!
Executive producer and lead 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.
The British singer-songwriter (Foxes, not Moffat) took time off yesterday from her UK tour - to support her debut album, Glorious - to take part in filming. Her album reached top 5 in the official album chart, following her three hit singles Youth, Let Go For Tonight and Holding Onto Heaven.
