Just the other morning I woke to the news that Michelle Gomez had decided to leave Doctor Who along with Peter Capaldi and Steven Moffat. Gutted. 

I love Missy. The combination of Michelle Gomez and a gender change has been a shot in the arm to the character we know and love as The Master and I hoped she would stick around for some time to come. But times are changing and another reboot, similar to series five is likely coming. Out with the old and in with the new as they say…. 

However, last night Michelle Gomez’s official Twitter account tweeted the following:

Wait…. What!?

Whoah. What exactly are we being told….. Are we being trolled here? 

Speculation is rife amongst the replies to the tweet as you would expect, but as of now there has yet to be a response. 

I can’t be the only person who has their fingers crossed that it is what it seems to be on the surface. Maybe Mr. Chibnall has had a word. On the other hand, as Steven Moffat once said of Michelle “she has a bit of the Devil in her”. It would serve us well to remember that this is Missy we are talking about here, and she has many a clever idea tucked up her sleeve……
