Missy will “surprise everyone” in Series 9
Doctor Who producer Brian Minchin has promised that Missy will “surprise everyone” in Series 9.
It has previously been confirmed that Michelle Gomez will be reprising her role as the renegade Time Lady for the two-part series opener, The Magician’s Apprentice and The Witch’s Familiar, which has been described as the show’s “darkest plot ever”.
“Missy is brilliant and we couldn’t wait to work with Michelle again,” he told SFX. “It’s the perfect story to bring her back.”
He added: “But it’s not going to be Missy as you expect her to be. You will get to see some new sides to her this series and you will learn more about her relationship with the Doctor.”
Filming for Series 9 is currently underway. It’s scheduled to air on BBC One in the autumn.
