Saturday’s episode of ‘Doctor Who’ was the big reveal that fans had been anticipating and pretty much predicted for the whole season, but one thing that wasn’t predicted was a return to the full on ‘Doctor Who’ snog. Which is something that hasn’t been to common in this series.
During the episode ‘Dark Water’ Missy gives the Doctor an almighty lip locking kiss, which probably raised the hairs on the necks of many and killed a few peoples pet gerbils with its intensity.
In a recent interview talking about the episode Michelle Gomez joked that kissing Doctor Who co-star Peter Capaldi was like “hell on earth”.
The kiss led up to the big reveal that Missy was in fact a new female incarnation of ‘The Master’ a role that was originated by Roger Delgado in the 70s and was last played by John Simm in the 2010 Christmas special, which saw David Tennant regenerate into the 11th Doctor. There has been endless speculation about Missy throughout the series run, but the Master theory was always the most talked about.
“My favourite is that I’ve been likened to Mary Poppins,” she declared. “But then of course I have to take that one stage further and say, ‘Are we saying that Mary Poppins is the most evil woman in the universe?’
“The problem is that, with me dressed as Mary Poppins, with this face, it’s just going to look a bit evil anyway.”
Gomez also made light of having to kiss Capaldi during an early scene in ‘Dark Water’.
“It was like kissing the Glaswegian version of David Bowie,” she joked. “Well, it was hell on earth, really.
“And I say it was hell on earth, only because obviously Missy would have liked to have taken it further. In fact, she had to pull herself together. That was the hellish part. But maybe it will be revealed in this final episode.”
The series finale, which has been given an additional 8 minutes will see The Doctor and Clara trying to stop Missy and the Cybermen from wiping out humanity.
