The fifth installment of DOCTOR WHO Season/Series 9 will be unveiled this Saturday, intriguingly entitled The Girl Who Died (the second part of this two-part story…transmitting next week…is conversely named The Woman Who Lived).
The Girl Who Died inserts GAME OF THRONES star Maisie Williams into the WHOverse, a move which already has some fans clamoring for Williams to be installed as the Doctor’s companion once Jenna Coleman departs DW this Season/Series. An interesting grab of a notion to be sure, but perhaps a touch premature given that we’ve seen little-to-nothing of Williams’ personality within this show, and know even less regarding the nature of her character. This said, imagining a personality type like Williams traveling alongside CapaldiDoc is certainly not a stretch - nor would such a paring seem at all undesirable at face value.
As inconceivable as this may seem, next week’s The Woman Who Lived will mark, more or less, the half-way point of this ninth Season/Series of DOCTOR WHO. A run of episodes which, for my money, have demonstrated remarkable consistency and surprisingly clear ‘vision’ thus far. Will the trend continue? I’m looking forward to finding out…
Below is a gallery of official promo images from The Girl Who Died - the gallery will be updated through the week should more still become available. Episodic clips (and further media from the story) may appear in the discussions below.
