Doctor Who: Michelle Gomez opens the door to future return

Posted Filed under

Come the end of Doctor Who series 10, and Michelle Gomez had revealed that she was leaving the show, and retiring her take on Missy/The Master. Her story had reached a natural end, and with the personnel on Doctor Who changing – both in front of and behind the camera – for series 11, you can understand why she thought it time to move on.

But never say never, as the mantra goes. And in a new interview with TV Line, Gomez has admitted she hasn’t shut the door to a Doctor Who return completely. When asked if she’d return to play Missy, she said, “probably not. I think that’s enough of Missy now. It’s good to know when to leave the party”.

But she then added that “t was a jolly good party, but time to leave – and then maybe come back, but time to leave for now”.

“I don’t know about being a Master to another Doctor. I feel very loyal to Peter and I don’t know how that would work, but I am willing to find out at a later date”.

Which still sounds firmly like Gomez is moving away from the show. But also softens her language about quitting altogether….
