Michelle Gomez joins Doctor Who series 8
The latest series 8 casting news has Green Wing's Michelle Gomez playing "The Gatekeeper of the Nethersphere"...
"Brilliant, Scottish and a tiny bit satanic." That's how Steven Moffat describes the latest guest star announced for Doctor Who series eight: Michelle Gomez.
Seen of late in BBC Three's Bad Education, Gomez is known and loved for her role as the unpredictable, devilish Sue White in Channel Four's Green Wing, and came to popular attention in Annie Griffin's The Book Group. She's also an accomplished stage actress, recently winning plaudits in the RSC's 2012 production of The Taming Of The Shrew.
Doctor Who fans though, will soon know Gomez as The Gatekeeper of the Nethersphere, pictured below in period dress. Filming continues on series eight.
Doctor Who returns to UK television on Saturday the 23rd of August.
