Michelle has previously stated that he departure alongside Peter Capaldi and Steven Moffat was a certainty. Speaking with the Radio Times, she said that it marked “the end of a chapter”:
“My pals are going so I’m going. Everybody’s leaving, so I’m going too. I mean, what would I do without Peter and Steven? Who would I be? Nah, it’s done now. It’s over. It’s the end of a chapter”
Could we see Missy alongside the new team? it seems the answer to that question might not be as certain as it appeared.
Michelle Gomez returns to Doctor Who this Saturday in Extremis, airing at 7:45pm on BBC One.
