The chance meeting that brought Foxes to 'Doctor Who'


Remember, once you see the mummy, you only have 66 seconds to live…

Back in May 2014, Foxes (a.k.a. Louisa Rose Allen) added her name to an already extensive list of top-notch guest stars that were set to appear on the upcoming series 8 of Doctor Who including Keeley Hawes, Hermione Norris, Ben Miller, Frank Skinner and Tom Riley. Needless to say, the Grammy-award winning British singer was decidedly over-the-top at the thought of making her acting debut opposite Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman. “I can’t believe I’m actually going to be in an episode of Doctor Who!”, said the singer. “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!
 

 
In last night’s “Mummy on the Orient Express” she made the Queen classic, “Don’t Stop Me Now” her own with a sultry ’20s jazz take onboard a train hurtling through space. “I really love the song and I loved the idea of a stripping it back and doing a jazz version,” said Foxes. Late last night, the Beeb released this brilliant music video of the entire song. Looks like its time to get out the iTunes gift card and add this to my playlist.
