Michelle Gomez's Missy to Return to Doctor Who Series 9

Watch out, Whovians, because Michelle Gomez is returning to series nine as Missy, aka the first female Master. Gomez will return for at least the season premiere, although everyone involved is being tight-lipped about the circumstances surrounding the character's return.

 

"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," said showrunner Steven Moffat. "But what brings her back into their lives is the last thing they'd expect."

 

For her part, Gomez had this to say: "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!"

 

Gomez joins Peter Capaldi, who will return as the twelfth Doctor, and Jenna Coleman, who was recently confirmed to be returning as companion Clara Oswald. 

 

Doctor Who series nine will air in fall 2015.
