Welcome to the Legion!


Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams thinks her character Ashildr from the Doctor Who episode “The Woman Who Lived” will return in future episodes. Clearly there are going to be spoilers for the previous week’s episode, so please keep that in mind before reading. As viewers know, Williams played a young Viking woman who was part of an alien takeover of their village. This brave and somewhat quirky girl had a run in with Clara (Jenna Coleman) and the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and … here comes the spoiler … ended up as an immortal.

Now, fans know that the Doctor has run into other immortals over and over again, including fan favorite Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) a number of times. There is no reason Williams wouldn’t be back. BBC has posted a video on the Doctor Who Facebook page where Williams speculates on that very thing. Check it out by clicking here.

Doctor Who airs on Sunday nights on BBC and BBC America.
