The actress, who has been playing Missy since the Twelfth Doctor era began in 2014, told The Aftershow:

“This is my last year, I’m done. I’m not coming back. I’m not kidding.

I wouldn’t want to be The Master to anyone else, I really, really enjoyed disturbing Peter [Capaldi] as the Doctor.”

When asked about the return of the Mondasian Cybermen in the Series 10 finale, Gomez dropped a bombshell:

“Wherever there is a Cyberman, Missy’s not far behind. She might be one…”

Also taking part in The Aftershow this week was Doctor Who Script Editor Nick Lambon. He spoke about the original draft of the recent Doctor Who story, Oxygen:

“It started out with Jamie [Mathieson, the episode’s writer]; the Doctor was blind and at the end of the episode he got his sight back. We literally shone something in his eyes and he could see again. It just felt a bit easy, a bit kind of magical and we all weren’t sure if that was really gonna work.

And then Steven [Moffat, Doctor Who showrunner] said, ‘Well, he doesn’t get his sight back and it just carries on’”.
