Doctor Who

Michelle Gomez and Eric Roberts rejoin the Doctor Who universe

By Christel Dee on Thursday 3 May 2018

In January 2019, River Song will face off against four regenerations of the Master, the mortal enemy of the Doctor, in a fifth series of adventures. And some old (and new) faces are returning…

Alongside Geoffrey Beevers (first playing the Master in Doctor Who TV episode The Keeper of Traken in 1981) and Derek Jacobi (who played the Master in 2008 episode Utopia and continues at Big Finish), Michelle Gomez returns as Missy, who we last saw in the latest Doctor Who series opposite Peter Capaldi.
