At Comic-Con International, Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat kept tradition alive. Moffat has been known to premiere new Doctor Who trailers at Comic-Con, and this year was no exception.
To the roar of the Comic-Con crowd, the newest Doctor Who trailer offered 90 seconds of footage from the upcoming ninth season. In a series of rapid cuts, we see the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and his companion/partner, Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) encounter Daleks, Zygons, ghosts, new enemies, and even Missy (Michelle Gomez)!
But the moment that got the biggest reaction was the cameo appearance at the end of the trailer…
That’s right, it’s Maisie Williams from Game of Thrones! And judging from her dialogue with the Doctor, she is someone that he already knows. But who is she? And could she possibly be another Time Lord survivor?
BBC America also revealed that the ninth season of Doctor Who will premiere on Saturday, September 19.
