The BBC has announced that Michelle Gomez will be back for Series 9 of Doctor Who.

Gomez debuted during Series 8 as "Missy," the female version of The Master.

Michelle Gomez arrived in Cardiff this week to film episodes for Doctor Who series 9 where she joined Peter Caplaldi and Jenna Coleman.

“Things have been a little beige since I left Missy behind, so I'm delighted to be putting my Lippie back on," Gomez told the BBC. "I'm positively dying to see the Doctor again!”

“Everybody hide - Michelle Gomez as Missy was an instant hit last year, so she’s straight back to plague the Doctor and Clara in the series opener," Doctor Who showrunner Stephen Moffat added. "But what brings her back into their lives is the last thing they’d expect.”

Other guest stars confirmed for the new series include Jemma Redgrave, Laurence Olivier, Clare Higgins, Jaye Griffiths, Daniel Hoffmann-Gill, Jami Reid-Quarrell, Aaron Neil, India Ria Amarteifio, Joey Price, Dasharn Anderson, Harki Bhambra, Demi Papaminas.
