BBC AMERICA RELEASES "DOCTOR WHO" FIRST LOOK VIDEO WITH GUEST STAR MAISIE WILLIAMS

New episode The Girl Who Died premieres this Saturday, October 17, 9:00pm ET

Today, BBC AMERICA released a first look video clip from the upcoming Doctor Who episode The Girl Who Died, starring Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams. The new episode premieres this Saturday, October 17, 9:00pm ET on BBC AMERICA.

In the first of the two-part story, the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Clara (Jenna Coleman) must train a useless band of Vikings to defend themselves against the galaxy's most deadly army. Williams, who plays Viking girl, Ashildre, shared some insight to how she was approached for the role, saying:

"I didn't know much about it, but knew they were introducing a new character to work closely with the Doctor. 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."

In a newly released video, the actress also discusses her experience with the Doctor Who and Game of Thrones fandoms colliding, revealing how she feels the pressure of meeting expectations and pleasing the fans.

The episode was written by Jamie Mathieson (Being Human) and lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat (Sherlock) and directed by Ed Bazalgette (Poldark).

BBC AMERICA's Doctor Who season 9 premiere broke records with double digit growth across all key demos.

The series is a BBC Cymru Wales production for BBC One and a BBC AMERICA co-production.
