Doctor Who is currently filming its second season with Peter Capaldi as the good Doctor. Joining him for an episode or perhaps two is Game of Thrones fan favorite Maisie Williams. When this bit of casting was first announced, there was no word on what type of character Williams would play, but now thanks to some new on set pictures and video, we’ve got a much better idea.The two episodes that Williams appears in are most likely The Girl Who Died and The Woman Who Lived. Show runner Steven Moffat described Williams role saying:
She is going to challenge the Doctor in very unexpected ways. 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.
Let’s take a look at the on set pictures tweeted out the other day:

Stand Fast!!! It’s the Dread Highway-Woman Roberts!
Williams looks fantastic in those 1800’s fashions, check out the on set video below that shows her pointing that loaded flintlock right at the good Doctor himself. How’s he going to get out of this one?
It looks like Williams will be playing a fun, flamboyant character with lots of style and chutz-pah. From that one picture with the glowing thing-a-ma-bob that she might steal some bit of tech from the Doctor, or perhaps the aliens that the Doctor is there to defeat. Throwing her right into the center of another of Doctor Who‘s adventures.
