Holy clashing icons, Batman! Maisie Williams, Game of Thrones‘ Arya Stark, guests on Doctor Who this week! And if a Thrones/Who mashup isn’t bad enough, how about a Star Wars reference thrown in the mix? Oh, and alien Vikings! I really enjoy the pseudo-historical episodes they throw in here and there – Rome, Robin Hood … and here’s another one. Here’s a clip from this week’s episode, The Girl Who Died.

In the first of the two-part story, the Doctor and Clara  must train a useless band of Vikings to defend themselves against the galaxy’s most deadly army. Williams, who plays Viking girl Ashildre, shared some insight to how she was approached for the role, saying:

“I didn’t know much about it, but knew they were introducing a new character to work closely with the Doctor. I’d got through the second episode and absolutely loved it! I was going to do a tape but ran out of time because I was in America shooting another film, so my agent worked really hard and sent over lots of clips and videos – they liked them and gave me the role.”

Peter Capaldi gives us some insight into the episode:

And if we’re not video-heavy enough for you today, here’s the trailer for Saturday’s episode:
