Doctor Who Books a Game of Thrones Star to Appear in Season 9

Make some room in the TARDIS! Maisie Williamsa.k.a. Game of Thrones' Arya Stark, will guest-star on Doctor Who during the show's upcoming ninth season, BBC America announced Monday.

Williams will play someone who challenges the Doctor "in very unexpected ways," executive producer Steven Moffat said. "This time he might just be out of his depth, and we know Maisie is going to give him exactly the right sort of hell." The specific details of actress's role are otherwise being kept under wraps.

"I'm so excited to be working on Doctor Who as it's such a big and important part of British culture," Williams said in a statement. "I can't wait to meet the cast and crew and start filming, especially as we'll be shooting not too far from my hometown."

Doctor Who returns for Season 9 this fall.


What do you think of Williams' casting?

Love Williams, she was the perfect casting for Arya and I hope they give her a good part in Doctor Who!

That's cool since I love Game of Thrones, even though she's just a guest star it makes me wonder if their hinting at her being the next companion.
Probably not but all the same, Clara has filled in her quota and it's close to time for her to be grounded. It's time for some new blood, we need it soon.

Clara has become painful. Aimee was a lot better.

So I take it then that her GoT character dies then?

That's some awesome sauce right here!! I'm so done with Clara and even though Maisie is not going to be a regular on the show, she would make a great companion.

Love Maisie, so I'm looking forward to this. Hopefully someone other than Moffat will be writing the episode(s).

This is great news. I'm very happy for both Maisie and the show. If they don't cast her as a younger Clara, I'm very much looking forward to it.
