Missy... alone, unleashed, and unfettered. What does she get up to when the Doctor isn’t around?

Sometimes, Missy isn’t the only bad person in the room. Sometimes, she meets others with their own naughty plans. And whoever they might be - medieval thieves, wayward students, renowned assassins - Missy will bring out the worst in them...

4.1 Missy and the Time Assassin by David Quantick
Missy gets to meet a hero. But James Blakelock, Time Assassin doesn’t quite live up to the legend - although he is very easy on the eye.

Although she has places to be and species to annihilate, Missy can't help herself, so she tags along on James' next mission. After all, a little bit of assassination never hurt anyone...

4.2 Bad Apple Brigade by Freddie Valdosta
Missy finds herself stranded on Brownsea Island with a troop of girls sent there to improve themselves. But these girls are troublemakers, and Missy has a few lessons to teach them.

Only, they’re not alone. Something lurking in the woods has history with Missy - but for her, that might be the future...

4.3 The Baron Robbers by Lou Morgan
Bored and stranded in the 14th Century, Missy is looking for a way out. Any way at all. Luckily the spectacular ruby owned by Edward, the famed Black Prince, might be just what she needs to get her broken vortex manipulator working again. But someone else is after the ruby too - and the question is, who wants it more... and how low are they prepared to go to get it?

Recorded at: The Soundhouse and remote recording


Producer Noga Flaishon said: “I am so thrilled to bring you a new and unhinged Missy story. We had such a blast creating this box set, exploring more of Missy's past and future and all the mayhem she gets up to on her own.

“This box set has more of an episodic feel to it with Missy bouncing across time and space at the whims of her vortex manipulator… not nearly as reliable a mode of transport as a TARDIS.

“The core theme of these stories is Missy’s presence as a deceiver and a corruptor – she actively brings out the worst in the people she crosses paths with in an unapologetic and fabulous manner. There is something really delicious about a villain who owns what they are.

“Working with Michelle has been a career highlight – she’s a wonder in the booth and had me in stitches for the majority of the recordings. She’s spent so long with this character her work has such a natural and easy quality to it even when she acts the most bizarre scenarios."

Michelle Gomez said: “I’m always happy to return to the world of Missy and the silly, wonderful nonsense that she gets up to. She’s like a cat. I love cats, and I wanna pet cats, but I know that at any minute they could turn on me. She toys with people – manipulates, charms, and toys – and I’m sure one of these days, she’s gonna get her comeuppance.”

Paterson Joseph added: “As soon as I read the script, I thought ‘I have to do this’, because I smiled all the way through reading it. I worked with Michelle on Green Wing many years ago, and I thought this would be great fun.

“Our dynamic is a bit like straight person to funny person. In a comedy duo, there’s always someone who’s the feed to the funny, and she’s obviously very, very funny. Having someone who’s quite jolly but completely psychotic, and also quite misanthropic as well – she doesn’t care about anything or anyone – is really joyful.”
