Following from Missy Series 01, we have the exciting news of Missy Series 02! No Doctor in sight but a welcome return for the Rufus Hound Monk as Michelle Gomez delights us again with this most mercurial of Masters. Here are my thoughts on series 01.
Press release after the break…
Missy Series 02
Missy… alone, unleashed and unfettered. What does she get up to when the Doctor isn’t around?
Now she has what she wants, Missy needs someone to show off to. But her temporal mischief attracts the wrong kind of attention.
Infuriating children, a vacationing Sontaran and her own worst intentions will get in her way. And a Meddling Monk, out for revenge…
This brilliant new box set features four stories for the Scary Poppins incarnation of the Master:
The Lumiat by Lisa McMullin
Brimstone and Terror by Roy Gill
Treason and Plot by Gemma Arrowsmith
Too Many Masters by John Dorney
Actor Michelle Gomez said:
“I absolutely love working on these audio adventures. And, from what I’ve heard from people at conventions, both of my fans have really, really loved them, too. Joking aside, across the board, everyone has loved the opportunity it’s given them to keep Missy in their lives, so that’s been really heartening, sweet and lovely. It’s a phenomenal privilege. I’m so thrilled and happy that I still get to keep Missy alive with these wonderful stories. She is naughty and not at all nice, but I quite like her.”
Actor Rufus Hound added:
“I mean, I doubt I’m the only person alive who would happily work in the wake of Michelle Gomez’s wild-eyed genius ‘til the end of time, so just know that I will never not want to be in stories with her. I always enjoy Doctor Who stories that have a certain swagger about them, so getting to reform the Missy ‘n’ Monk double act is one of my absolute favourite things to do. This is the one people should all buy (because if you do, I’ll get to record more of them and I really want that to happen please and thank you).”
