Michelle Gomez as Missy in Doctor Who

In light of this week’s dramatic Next Time trailer, and with the end of the series in sight, we felt it high time to marshall everything we know about the mysterious Missy, using the medium of gifs:

She's in Heaven

Missy has welcomed several characters who’ve died this series, with the greeting:

The domain has also been described as the Half-Faced Man’s “Promised Land”, “the afterlife”, “the Nethersphere”, and of course:

She loves surprises

She has a boyfriend

Who can be “very mean” sometimes - except to her, because:

She asks the Half-Faced Man if her boyfriend pushed him out of the flying restaurant or if he jumped - which rather implies her boyfriend is the Doctor. She very much likes his new, Scottish accent though. She plans to keep it.

She’s an impeccable hostess

Lovely.

She’s a god?

At least Seb seems to think so, when “welcoming” a deceased policeman to the Nethersphere:

Any questions?

She chose Clara

At the end of Flatline, we saw her tuning in to the adventures of the Doctor and Clara, remarking:

She’s known to the Doctor

As teased in the trailer:

A mysterious Missy indeed. Lets hope that Dark Water helps shed some light on things...
