So who knew, the Girl Who Died would become the Woman Who Lived? You knew Ashildr’s story wasn’t over, and she returns this week! What would you do if you were immortal?
In The Girl Who Died, just before Ashildr came alive again, thanks to the gadget the Doctor rigged from The Mire’s helmets, he tries to leave before she can say goodbye, saying that she’ll see plenty of him in the future. How did he know he’d come across her again? Was that why she looked familiar to him as he and Clara walked into the village? Clara asks him, “Do you know her?” “Never seen her before in my life,” he responds. “OK. So why are you staring at her?” “Don’t know. Too much time travel. It happens. People talk about premonition as if it’s something that’s strange. It’s not. It’s just remembering in the wrong direction.” And perhaps the Doctor remembers that he has actually seen her before – in her future, his past.
This week’s official synopsis: England, 1651. The deadly highwayman, “The Knightmare,” and his sidekick stalk the dark streets of London. But when they find loot that’s not of this world, they come face to face with the Doctor. Who is the Knightmare in league with? And can the Doctor avoid the hangman’s noose and protect Earth from a devilish betrayal?
Maisie Williams returns as Ashildr. Here are some pix from this week’s episode:
