Maisie Williams’ ‘Doctor Who’ character ‘shifts in cosmic ways’

Peter Capaldi has described Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams as a “sharp, talented tornado”.

Williams is guest starring in two episodes of the new season of Doctor Who later this year, but the producers have been tight-lipped about who she is playing.

Capaldi told EW: “Maisie is fantastic. A sharp, talented tornado. As an 18-year-old, she has taught me many new words and expressions.”

Teasing what to expect from her role, he commented: “All I’ll say about her character is she shifts in cosmic ways.”

Peter Capaldi also hinted at the antagonists his Doctor will encounter in Season 9: “There is an epic sweep to this season and I think the villains and monsters reflect that.”

He added: “Great new ones, brilliant old ones, and some very scary creatures looming in stories with real emotional ambition.”

The Scottish actor is currently shooting the two-part season finale, directed by Rachel Talalay (‘Dark Water’, ‘Death in Heaven’).

Who (or what) do you think Maisie Williams is playing in Season 9? Let us know below…

    Jenny anyone?

    • Edward Delingford

      God no. One of the very worst creations during Davies’ time (and that is saying something!). I think she’ll be a time splinter like Clara. I’d much rather she was loosely related to Clara in some way. That would sit more nicely I think,

        Or not so loosely. I think Maisie resembles Jenna enough to play Clara’s sister, or even be a younger version of Clara.

  • Dr. Moo

    The rumour is that she’s playing a different character in each of her two episodes. This makes me suspect she holds the key to why three individuals look like the 12th Doctor which we know is coming this season.
