Maisie Williams of Game of Thrones guest-stars in a highly anticipated episode of BBC America’s Doctor Who on Saturday, Oct. 17, at 9pm ET. In “The Girl Who Died,” the first of a two-part story, the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Clara (Jenna Coleman) are captured by Vikings and must help protect their village from the Mire, an army of deadly space warriors from the future. The ragtag band of Vikings is outnumbered and overmatched, but the Doctor thinks Viking girl Ashildre (Williams) may hold the secret to victory. Part 2 of the story airs Saturday, Oct. 24, at 9pm ET/PT with “The Woman Who Lived.”

“I didn’t know much about it, but knew they were introducing a new character to work closely with the Doctor,” Williams says of getting the role. “I’d got through the second episode and absolutely loved it! I was going to do a tape but ran out of time because I was in America shooting another film, so my agent worked really hard and sent over lots of clips and videos – they liked them and gave me the role.”
