The BBC has today (Monday) released more intriguing details about Series 9 of Doctor Who.

This week filming has commenced on the third block which consists of two period adventures, The Girl Who Died by Jamie Mathieson and Steven Moffat, and The Woman Who Lived by Catherine Tregenna.

Jamie’s previous episodes include Mummy on the Orient Express and Flatline while Torchwood writer Catherine Tregenna is contributing to Doctor Who for the first time.

The episodes are being helmed by Poldark director Ed Bazalgette and guest stars for the block include Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams, whose unnamed character will “challenge the Doctor in very unexpected ways”, comedian Rufus Hound, Tom Stourton, Ariyon Bakare, Simon Lipkin, Ian Conningham, Murray McArthur, Barnaby Kay, John Voce and Struan Rodger. Further casting for Series 9 is expected to be announced in due course.

    I haven’t heard of any of those guest “stars”, so I can’t comment on them.

    In terms of Writers, it’s great that Jamie Mathieson is back, as his were the only half decent episodes of Series 8 for me. I’d have preferred that he write his episode by himself, but we’ll see what happens.

    As for Catherine Tregenna, she wrote “Out Of Time” and “Adam” for Torchwood, both very memorable episodes, so good news for the Writers.

    Yeah I know, I’ve just never seen Game of Thrones. It’s one of those things that if you don’t see it from the start, you’re not part of the crowd when it becomes really popular like it has.

    Although I don’t know the guest stars, I’m willing to see what they have to offer in Series 9. I’m trying to think more positively about Doctor Who recently.

    Kind of tired of these titles I’m not going to lie. The Girl Who Died? the Woman that Lived? All we need now is a The ______ of The Doctor and we have the full set!
