While her exact role has not been revealed, Steven Moffat, lead writer and Executive Producer, added:
“We’re thrilled to have Maisie Williams joining us on Doctor Who. It’s not possible to say too much about who or what she’s playing, but she is going to challenge the Doctor in very unexpected ways. This time he might just be out of his depth, and we know Maisie is going to give him exactly the right sort of hell.”
The announcement also revealed two more episode titles for the new series, ‘The Girl Who Died’ written by Jamie Mathieson and Steven Moffat, and ‘The Woman Who Lived’ by Catherine Tregenna. Tregenna has written several episodes of Torchwood, including “Captain Jack Harkness”, for which she received a Hugo nomination. »

Successful scripted comedy is, for the most part, built on firmly established characters that an audience grows to loathe, love or basically care one jot about. Which is why Inside No 9 is such a wonderful anomaly.
The BBC Two anthology series – written by Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith – invites the audience into six standalone and terrifyingly bonkers worlds where the only constant is the number on the door of the house / booth / train carriage.
The first episode in the returning series, which begins tonight, is every bit as farcical, dark and hilarious as the comedy we've come to expect from Pemberton and Shearsmith.
'La Couchette' sees irritable Dr Maxwell (Shearsmith) trying and failing to fall asleep on an overnight train from Paris to Bourg St Maurice. He has an important job interview the following morning at the World Health Organisation.

Lilyhammer's 'gangster on the lam in a remote Norwegian town' story is a quirky, comic gem that richly deserves a fourth season...
Lilyhammer’s third season arrived on Netflix last November, bolder, bloodier and sillier than ever. The most recent batch of episodes, boasting a budget bigger than Norway’s Gdp, catapulted viewers from the cold climes of Scandinavia to the tropical slums of Rio de Janeiro and back again, with a few stop-offs in New York along the way. There was murder, intrigue, Islamic terrorism, a dying whale, a mafia cookbook, drug-running, a big-budget Brazilian telenovela, reindeer racing and of course the requisite explosions, gun fights and fist fights that are now a permanent staple of life in the quiet and quaint little town of Lillehammer. There was also a finale that featured one of the more bizarre cliff-hangers in modern television history: a bludgeoned breast-crazed maniac lying »
Inside No 9 will return to BBC Two later this month.

Mehmed (Dominic Cooper) gets a message from Prince Vlad (Luke Evans) through General Ismail (Arkie Reece) in our exclusive clip from Dracula Untold, which just debuted on Blu-ray and DVD earlier this week. This scene shows Ismail recalling memories from the past, which doesn't sit too well with Mehmed, who is literally forced to "kill the messenger." The question remains: was Ismail literally possessed by Vlad himself?
For almost a century, the legend of Dracula has mesmerized audiences with the story of a charismatic royal who feasts on the blood of innocents after the sun goes down. Dracula Untold reveals the man behind the myth in the thrilling, action-packed tale of Vlad III, Prince of Wallachia (Luke Evans - The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies, Fast & Furious 6), who makes a terrifying deal with a supernatural ally that will allow him to save his family and his country »
Having recovered from a shattering emotional breakdown, college professor Ben Marshall relocates to the countryside with his wife and young son, hoping for a fresh start. He has a teaching job lined up and a new home to move into; things finally look to be going Ben’s way. Until, that is, he starts to feel that something isn’t quite right in the house. Finding himself plagued by spectral visions, Ben becomes obsessed with uncovering the truth behind a local mystery that appears to be putting the lives of his family in danger.
Within the first few minutes of Blackwood, I had a general idea of what to expect from the film. It all became clear after Ben says the line: “Once I’m onto something, »

If you had told us, back in Dennis Pennis’ mid-1990s spoof interviewing heyday, that his alter ego Paul Kaye would one day be starring in a TV adaptation of Game Of Thrones and the new Doctor Who series, we’d have likely said, ‘Doctor Who isn’t even on! And there Is no show of that one book by that fantasy guy! Begone, time-travelling demon!’ But we would be sadly wrong (except maybe about the time-travelling bit), as Got veteran Kaye is indeed part of a sprawling cast for the two-part launch for the new series of Who.The BBC has announced that the ninth series of the show – at least since the Doctor came back to screens in 2005 – is now shooting at its usual Cardiff locale, with Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman once more starring. Kaye, Thoros in Thrones, will be one of the main guest stars for the two-parter alongside Morven Christie, »

The BBC has announced that the new series of Doctor Who has begun filming ready for its return to the small screen this autumn. In addition, they have also revealed a selection of guest stars who will feature in the two-part opening episode.
Paul Kaye (Game of Thrones) is one of those guests involved, and he said: “As a kid of the 1970s, the two shows you always watched were Top of the Pops and Doctor Who, they were unmissable…..I actually wrote a song called ‘Looking for Davros’’in my first punk band and I sang it like a demented Dalek. I got to present Totp back in the mid ‘90’s and landing this role in Doctor Who completes the dream double. Peter is a perfect Doctor and I’m loving every minute of the experience, even the five hours in make-up. What a treat, best 50th birthday present ever! »

Doctor Who could be filming in Spain for series nine of the sci-fi drama.

He previously wrote: "I am a huge Dr Who fan from the age of 12. It is a dream come true to be asked to shoot a block of series nine. It's going to be fantastic."
Doctor Who has previously filmed in Spain on several occasions, including series eight episode 'Kill the Moon'.
Matt Smith's Doctor also filmed there twice, for both 'A Town Called Mercy' and 'Asylum of the Daleks'.
Paul Kaye (Pusher, Dracula Untold) certainly made an impression as Red Priest Thoros of Myr in the third season of Game Of Thrones, but even though he and the rest of the Brotherhood are still (presumably) alive and kicking in Westeros, we didn't see or hear from them in season 4, and there's been no word of Kaye or any of the other actors shooting scenes for season 5. Now, according to the Independent, the British actor will be joining Peter Capaldi’s Time Lord and Jenna Coleman’s companion Clara in Doctor Who as a character named Prentis. He's expected to appear at the start of series nine in first episode “The Magician’s Apprentice”. For the night is dark, and full of Tardises. »
Paul Kaye is set to appear in the upcoming ninth series of Doctor Who, with Den of Geek reporting that the actor is set to portray a character called Prentis, sparking speculation that he’ll appear in the series 9 premiere ‘The Magician’s Apprentice’.
Since his time as shock interview Dennis Pennis, Kaye has appeared in the likes of Being Human, Ripper Street and Game of Thrones, where he plays Thoros of Myr. He was also seen on the big screen last year as part of the cast of Dracula Untold.
Doctor Who returns to the BBC later this year.
