One of the most interesting questions that has been posed over the upcoming series of Doctor Who is, “Who is Maisie Williams playing?”.
To be honest, I don’t think this would have many people asking questions, if it wasn’t for her character’s prominence in the recent trailer (check it to here).
In this, Williams’ character seemed to already know who the Doctor is, not only this, but the Doctor recognised her as well. To compound this speculation, showrunner Steven Moffat has been teasing us, and feeding the fires himself.
This can be seen in a recent interview, where he stated: “She’s not someone from the Doctor’s past. Unless I’m lying! Once you see what she’s up to on the show, you’ll appreciate what a clever idea it was. It’s a significant role. We’re not just getting star value and throwing it away. It’s a great part, and she’s terrific in it.”
Personally, I believe she has some sort of connection to the Doctor. However, if I had to put money on it, I would say that she is somehow related to a character from the old series. I freely admit though, that this is built on nothing in particular…
