Michelle Gomez is back this February reprising the latest incarnation of the Master. The trailer and story details for our brand new series, Missy, have been released today, plus we have a special treat for fans of the Master…
Four brand new audio adventures from Big Finish Productions made in arrangement with BBC Studios, see an unleashed Missy bringing the universe to wrack and ruin. We can’t wait for its release in February 2019!
Missy… alone, unleashed and unfettered. What does she get up to when the Doctor isn’t around?
Well, Missy has a plan. And to carry it out, she’s going to have to break some rules. And people. And planets.
Look out universe, Missy is on a mission. And nobody is going to stop her…
A Spoonful of Mayhem by Roy Gill
Finding herself in a spot of bother in Victorian London, Missy is forced to take on governess duties.
But she has a whole other scheme in mind, and her charges are just in the way. She’s going to have to teach the children some rather harsh lessons about getting what you want.
And there will be tears before bedtime.
Divorced, Beheaded, Regenerated by John Dorney
Missy arrives in Tudor England, throwing the plans of another renegade Time Lord into chaos.
King Henry VIII is on the throne, and aliens are stomping through the countryside.
Missy just wants to be Queen. And the Monk? Once he knows who else is on the scene, he’ll just be happy to stay alive…
The Broken Clock by Nev Fountain
Tonight, on Dick Zodiac’s America’s Most Impossible Killers, Detective Joe Lynwood hunts the most impossible killer of his career.
There’s a trail of bodies. Impossible bodies. And Joe has one long night to solve the case.
Luckily, D.I. Missy Masters from Scotland Yard in England, London, England is here to lend a hand…
The Belly of the Beast by Jonathan Morris
Missy’s scheme nears completion. All she must do is subjugate one little planet and bend the inhabitants to her will. Not too much to ask, is it?
But slaves will keep rebelling. It’s almost as if they don’t want to unearth an ancientartefact to help her plans for universal domination.
She’ll have to do something about that.
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. As Michelle said in studio: “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.”
Missy is, of course, not the first time that the Master has appeared at Big Finish. From his debut in Main Range release, Dust Breeding, to a Big Finish incarnation in the box set UNIT: Dominion, to exploring the Master throughout the Time War with Derek Jacobi (originally seen in the Doctor Who 2008 television episode Utopia).
Derek Jacobi will be reprising his role in The War Master: The Master of Callous in a second volume of adventures out for release this December.
If you haven’t yet listened to the first volume, The War Master: Only the Good, now is the perfect time. You can download the first episode, Beneath the Viscoid, for free today from the Big Finish website.
