Michelle Gomez returns as Missy in her own adventures on audio. The wicked incarnation of the Master returns, and this time the Doctor isn’t here to stop her…

Michelle Gomez, who played the Doctor’s best friend and wicked enemy, Missy, in the recent Doctor Who television series, will be returning to the role in some brand new audio adventures from Big Finish Productions made in arrangement with BBC Studios.

Throughout her time on Doctor Who, Missy – an evil incarnation in the guise of a Victorian nanny – was a delightful devil, at one point sentenced to death for terrible crimes against the universe. And now we get the chance to hear more of what she is really capable of.

These new adventures see an unleashed Missy bringing the universe to wrack and ruin. We can’t wait for its release in February 2019!

Michelle Gomez told us about letting Missy loose on the people of the universe: “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.

“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 (whilst evading the Doctor’s clutches) Missy will encounter another enemy of her ‘boyfriend’ as she crosses paths with the Meddling Monk played by Rufus Hound.

    … didn’t finish, sorry … they’re expensive in my opinion and quite short. Some stories are really good, however. Want to get the War Master when it’s fewer pennies.

      At pre order price it’s £20 quid for download that’s £4 per hour plus it’s much cheaper than a series of Doctor Who & the physical is £23 so 3 more

      Right so a boxset of 12 x 45 mins and 2 x 60 mins will cost you say 44.99 at pre order price

      That’s 11 hours of content on a dvd with visuals and stuff plus 2 hours of bonus

      A Big Finish Boxset will cost you £23 on cd for 4 hour long stories plus an hour long documentary

      That’s 4 hours of no visual content, plus a documentary

      So actually three big finish boxsets equal roughly the amount of a single dvd series but the three big finish boxsets cost more

      I actually agree. It’s a lot to just pay £23 per boxset for one boxset when buying a dvd you actually get more content that 3 boxsets

      Big finish could actually lower there prices to £17 for a fairer price

      But add on big finish, are a Small company and the bbc have a license tax on them so yes. It is fair

      You have to take into account that the license fee pays for the tv show. Big finish have to pay to use the doctor who name any characters or monsters that have rights that aren’t owned by the bbc, the writers, directors, mixers, script editors, music, actors and studio hire. All has to be paid by big finish. The dvds will also sell many times the amount of what the big finish box set will sell. Big finish sell by their own admission a niche product and will only sell a small amount of copies. They are the prices they are so they can survive.

    Big Finish stories are very expensive, I think.

      You think £20 is expensive

      20 pound for 4 hours of stories and an hour or two of behind the scenes isn’t bad. I mean, a book costs about the same, comics cost more.

      Actually, you should only need 40 pounds/dollars/whatever currency, as this set is still on it’s pre-order price and the War Master set is on sale.

    This is the most exciting Big Finish announcement since the first volume of The Tenth Doctor Adventures. This is going to be one fantastic set.

      Jim Carter wasn’t actually the Monk. It was just Butterworth, Garden and Hound.

      i thought it was implied he was the meddling monk in The book of kelis.

      I stand corrected, but wasn,t jim carter the red herring to divert from the real meddling monk?

      Yeah he was, but it was Graeme Garden who played the real Monk in that story.
