Actress Keeley Hawes has been tapped to play banker Ms. Delphox, who we will meet in an episode this autumn.

From BBC News:

“Anyone watching the amazing Line Of Duty will know that Keeley Hawes is having one hell of year,” said Doctor Who boss Steven Moffat.
“And now it’s about to get even better as she achieves the greatest villainy yet attempted on Doctor Who: she plays a banker.”
Hawes, who previously starred in BBC dramas Ashes to Ashes and Spooks, plays Ms Delphox, who is described as “a powerful out of this world character with a dark secret”.
The story, written by Steve Thompson, sees the twelfth Doctor and his companion, Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman), meet Ms Delphox when they arrive “on a strange and puzzling planet”.
The episode is directed by Douglas Mackinnon, whose previous work includes Line of Duty and Doctor Who.
Hawes said: “I am delighted to join Doctor Who and to be working with this incredible team. Ms Delphox is a great character and someone I’ve had a lot of fun playing.”
