Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams has said it was "a joy" to work with Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi.

Best known for her role as Arya Stark in HBO's fantasy epic filmed in Northern Ireland, the 18-year-old swapped Westeros for the Tardis to guest star in BBC One's long-running sci-fi series.

"Peter has been such a joy to work with," she said. "My brother was so excited when he heard I got the part, as was I. He's a wonderful, wonderful actor and I couldn't wait to meet him. He totally lived up to my expectations and I love that!"

Williams features in two Doctor Who episodes: The Girl Who Died, airing October 17, and The Woman Who Lived, airing the following week.
