Michelle Gomez is back for another glorious turn as Missy (aka The Master) in the upcoming ninth season of Doctor Who. She’ll join Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman for the two-part Season 9 premiere, “The Magician’s Apprentice” and “The Witch’s Familiar”, written by Steven Moffat and directed by Hettie Macdonald (who also directed one of Doctor Who‘s finest episodes, “Blink”).
Gomez is excited about her return to Doctor Who. She said, “Things have been a little beige since I left Missy behind, so I’m delighted to be putting my lippie back on. I’m positively dying to see The Doctor again!”
Moffat added, “Everybody hide – Michelle Gomez as Missy was an instant hit last year, so she’s straight back to plague the Doctor and Clara in the series opener. But what brings her back into their lives is the last thing they’d expect.”
Doctor Who returns later this year.
