The 18-year-old actress – whose guest role in the long-running BBC One sci-fi drama was confirmed back in March – will make her debut on Saturday in an episode entitled The Girl Who Died and first-look photos have revealed more details about her character, Ashildr.
Debut: Maisie, 18, joins Jenna-Louise Coleman (Clara Oswald) and Peter Capaldi (The Doctor) as Ashildr in an episode entitled The Girl Who Died which airs on Saturday 17th October
Dream team: The episode is set in a ‘little Viking village where all the warriors have just been slaughtered’. The Doctor and Clara have 12 hours to train some farmers into warriors, as Ashildr (#Maisie Williams) declares war upon the Mire
And young Maisie Williams is continuing to rack up the credits in between shooting the highly-anticipated sixth season and has jumped ship to Doctor Who.
