Michelle Gomez has confirmed that she’ll be returning to Doctor Who in Series 9.

The actress was introduced as Missy in the latest series, which reached its dramatic conclusion last Saturday, and exclusively told the new issue of Doctor Who Magazine that she’s set to reprise her role next year.

“Yes. ‘Yes’ is my answer,” she said. “I’ll be back. Can I say that? Am I allowed? If not… well, I guess we’ll have to see how she’s received…”

    I doubted The Mistress was gone for good. Like Davros, she’s never that easily defeated. Sadly, The Mistress just wasn’t The Master and I don’t see how her returning in Series 9 will improve that.

    MG was fantastically camp in the part, as all previous incarnations of the malign Gallifreyan have been! Male or female makes little difference. It’s all a bit of fun!

    Thank god she said this so we don’t have to keep speculating for a year if she’s actually still alive. Now, Gallifrey maybe?

    YES! I would be so disappointed if she didn’t come back, I can’t wait to her/him again! Hopefully next time we’ll find out how she survived/escaped.

    Missy is the best thing to happen to Doctor Who for a while. Her deadly flippancy is a great foil to the ultra serious Doctor. Not since Hartnel and Pertwee have we had such a serious Doctor but they still had time for the odd chuckle unlike this Doc. In addition the latest Doc is just starting to grow on me, the delay being because of his extreme self pity and deference to an increasingly bossy Clara. A female Doc is a bridge to far after being used to a male Doctor. However, the gender change in the Master works. it is interesting because the Doctor cared about the Master to the point of cradling him in his arms once when he was dying.

    I suspect a romance between the two is on the cards when Missy becomes temporarily good. I suspect the coordinates for Galifrey were real but it was hidden by some sort of field or it was in another dimension.

    Missy is deliciously evil in a very witty and flippant way which adds to her sexiness.

    I am never convinced a character is dead until we see them die on screen, we didn’t see davros die so he could have been saved or beamed out, like in the sja where the slitheen child was through dead but we realise they are still alive in the season finale, and I am convinced that missy didn’t die she was teleported. Who knows? Who Knows (Pun obviously intended)
