Maisie Williams: “I’ll not be back in Doctor Who…”

Although Game of Thrones actress Maisie Willaims has said she’d love a chance to play The Doctor in future episodes of Doctor Who after playing the immortal Ashildr last season, it seems the actress won’t be back…. in any capacity.

Talking to Bang Showbiz, the actress said: “I’m not going to be working on ‘Doctor Who’ again. Everyone’s hyping about it, which is very exciting, but I guess that’s more of a publicity thing. But no, I’m not going to return, I have a lot of other really exciting projects lined up instead.”

With Steven Moffat’s final season of Doctor Who (Series 10, fact fans) filming this Spring, it was unlikely we’d see her return anyway:  “I had such a wonderful time shooting that series, it was really great to work with Jenna and Peter. It was such a different experience to shoot working in blocks, because I work on ‘Game of Thrones’ and we do everything all at the same time so it’s a different way of working.”

Mind you, that said, as only one of a handful of immortals we know of currently running around space and time in the Who-niverse, it’s always a possibility the actress will return at some stage, but she certainly doesn’t seem to thing so.

Let us know if you’d like to see her return.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
