Missy fans, rejoice! The BBC has confirmed that Michelle Gomez will be appearing in Doctor Who Series 9 to reprise her role as the Doctor’s nemesis, the Mistress.

Gomez, who made her first appearance in the Series 8 opener ‘Deep Breath‘, 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!”

Missy is set to return for the series premiere, a two-parter titled ‘The Magician’s Apprentice‘ and ‘The Witch’s Familiar‘, both of which have been written by lead writer and show runner Steven Moffat and directed by Hettie MacDonald (‘Blink‘).

On the subject of Gomez’s return, Moffat said: “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 Series 9 will air later this year. You can buy Doctor Who Series 8 on Blu-ray for £36 from Amazon.co.uk. Get all the latest sci-fi TV news with every new issue of SciFiNow.
