New Doctor Who Series 9 Trailer Features Maisie Williams, Daleks, the Master, and More

Doctor Who and Game of Thrones will collide in the ninth series of Doctor Who, when Maisie Williams guest stars on the BBC show as a mysterious antagonist. Now, a new trailer is here to preview her appearance, as well as dragons, Daleks, and the return of Michelle Gomez as The Master.



We still don't know too much about Williams's character, except that Steven Moffat insists she is "very different" from Arya Stark, and that leaked set photos and video made her look like some kind of highway bandit from the 18th century.

Opening quote
"She is a brand new character. She is not someone from the Doctor's past," showrunner Steven Moffat said at the TCA press tour (via THR). "It's a great part and she's terrific in it. It will develop in unexpected ways. Once you see what she's up to in the show, you'll appreciate what a clever [idea that was]. It's a significant role. We're not throwing her away."
Closing quote


BBC also released a poster ahead of the new season:
