Steven Moffat has dropped some intriguing hints about Maisie Williams’ “significant role” in Series 9 – by revealing nothing about who she’ll be playing. Classic, Moff!

Speaking at the Television Critics Association’s press tour, the showrunner remained tightlipped about the Game of Thrones star’s involvement in the upcoming series, revealing only that it’s “a clever idea” and one we won’t see coming. “It’s a great part and she’s terrific in it,” he affirmed. “All I will say is that she’s not playing a returning character. She is someone brand new and not a character from the Doctor’s past.”

So, there goes our generic River Song theory! Who do YOU think she’ll be playing? Discuss!

Peter Capaldi has revealed some interesting new tidbits about Maisie Williams’ involvement in Series 9.

The Game of Thrones actress will star in Episodes 5 and 6 – The Girl Who Died and The Woman Who Lived – as a mysterious character who looks set to “challenge the Doctor in unexpected ways”. While Peter remained tightlipped about what lies in store, he told Entertainment Weekly that “she shifts in cosmic ways”. “Maisie is fantastic,” he said. “A sharp, talented tornado. As an 18 year old, she has taught me many new words and expressions.”

What’s your theory about Maisie’s role? She could be “good or bad”, which doesn’t help…

Rufus Hound has revealed that it was a true “punch the air” moment when he landed his guest role in Series 9.

The actor and comedian will star in Episode 6, The Woman Who Lived, as a character called Sam Swift and hopes that it will mark the first of many appearances. “I was in the pub drinking a pint of proper beer when I found out,” he said. “I’ve actually filmed my bit now, and it was just everything I dreamt it would be. When that comes out in October, I hope that people like what I did so much that they start a campaign for me to regularly be in it!”

Filming for Series 9 is currently underway. It’s scheduled to air on BBC One in the autumn.

Rufus Hound has confirmed that he will be playing a character called Sam Swift in the next series of Doctor Who.

The actor and comedian joined the guest star line up last month when it was announced that he’d be appearing in Episode 6 The Woman Who Lived, the read through for which was recently held at the show’s base in Cardiff.

“I had to make sure I played it cool, because inside I was not,” he told the official site. “I’m trying to be a professional, rather than a boy wanting to run around squeeing!”

No further details about his character have been revealed. Series 9 will air in the autumn.

The BBC has today (Monday) confirmed that Maisie Williams will be guest starring in Series 9 of Doctor Who.

The Game of Thrones star will play a mysterious character who “is going to challenge the Doctor in very unexpected ways” when he returns to our screens this autumn.

The actress has started filming in Cardiff today as production begins on two period adventures, The Girl Who Died by Jamie Mathieson and Steven Moffat, and The Woman Who Lived by Catherine Tregenna.

The stories are being directed by Ed Bazalgette whose most recent work includes Poldark.

“I’m so excited to be working on Doctor Who as it’s such a big and important part of British culture,” Maisie has commented. “I can’t wait to meet the cast and crew and start filming.”

Steven Moffat added: “We’re thrilled to have Maisie Williams joining us on Doctor Who. It’s not possible to say too much about who or what she’s playing but this time the Doctor may just be out of his depth. We know Maisie is going to give him exactly the right sort of hell.”
