Sorry, Maisie Williams Isn’t Returning to ‘Doctor Who’

Ignore any rumor you may have read about “Game of Thrones” Maisie Williams replacing Jenna Coleman as the Doctor’s companion on “Doctor Who.” It’s simply too good to be true.

“I’m not going to be working on ‘Doctor Who’ again,” said the 18-year-old actress, who’s appeared on four episodes of the long-running BBC drama. “Everyone’s hyping about it, which is very exciting, but I guess that’s more of a publicity thing. But no, I’m not going to return, I have a lot of other really exciting projects lined up instead.”

Presumably that also rules out Williams succeeding Peter Capaldi as the Doctor, y’know, as long as Idris Elba isn’t cast in the role first.
