We’ll be the first to admit that it’s somewhat jarring watching Maisie Williams act in a fantasy world that is not ruled by a Baratheon, but here she is, all over the new trailer for the ninth season of the BBC sci-fi odyssey, Doctor Who. Details of Williams’ role are being kept under wraps, and—full disclosure—wouldn’t mean much to us, since we don’t really watch Doctor Who. But if there’s one thing that can get us to start, it’s Arya Stark herself.
Here is the Maisie Williams-less description of the upcoming season of Doctor Who.
In Peter Capaldi’s second season at the helm of the TARDIS, the series sees the Doctor and Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) going on a journey that takes them to deadly alien planets, creepy underwater bases, Viking villages, a global Zygon uprising, and through hidden alien dens, to the very end of time itself. Meeting monsters old and new, the Doctor will come face to face with Missy (Michelle Gomez), a city of Daleks, deadly mercenaries called the Mire, terrifying ghosts and more.
