Everybody’s favourite Scottish Miss is set to return with a brand new audio series from Big Finish.
The new adventures will see Michelle Gomez return to her role as Missy and will be available from the DWCA Shop in April 2019.
There will be four new adventures: A Spoonful of Mayhem by Roy Gill, Divorced, Beheaded, Regenerated by John Dorney, The Broken Clock by Nev Fountain and The Belly of the Beast by Jonathan Morris.
Gomez told Big Finish she was excited to bring everyone’s favourite “delightful devil” back to life so fans can hear more of what she is really capable of.
“I was very excited to return to Missy’s world via the medium of audio because along the way I’ve always had a lot of fun with Missy; her voices and her rhythms. I absolutely love capturing it and distilling it down to the word on the page,” she explained.
“I’m absolutely delighted! She’s such a ridiculously brilliant character, and hopefully, that earns her that moment in the spotlight.
“To find myself centre stage with these Missy adventures is thrilling – I’m very grateful.”
And (while evading the Doctor’s clutches) Missy will encounter another enemy of the Doctor as she crosses paths with the Meddling Monk played by Rufus Hound.
Missy adventures producer David Richardson said to expect the unexpected.
“Missy’s own series is just like the Time Lady herself – anarchic, funny, unpredictable and wildly imaginative,” he told Big Finish.
“It’s absolutely glorious to have Michelle returning to the character at Big Finish, and our recording days have been filled with so much laughter.
“And we haven’t even met face to face yet! Michelle’s busy filming the new Sabrina series in Vancouver for Netflix and so we’ve been pairing studios down the line; Michelle thousands of miles away while we’re in London synched up with her. It’s been a joy to make. And just wait until you hear the collaboration of Missy and the Meddling Monk!”
Gomez will additionally be reprising her role as Missy in the fifth series of The Diary of River Song, joining TV Movie Master Eric Roberts, Geoffrey Beevers’ decayed Master and Derek Jacobi’s War Master in a series of adventures opposite Alex Kingston. The series will be available to purchase from the DWCA Shop in early 2019, with the Missy boxset available shortly after.
