Whatever your opinion of Peter Capaldi's first turn as the Doctor in Season 8 of Doctor Who, there's no denying that one of the highlights was Michelle Gomez's deliciously wicked turn as (SPOILERS if you're not caught up) Missy/The Master. Now, with Season 9 looming, we know the Doctor's old Gallifrean friend will be around for at least a couple episodes, teaming up with Clara to track down a Doctor who's apparently in great peril. 

On the eve of the Season 9 premiere, I had the chance to sit down with the lovely (and fantastically coiffed) Michelle Gomez to talk about what we can expect from Missy in the upcoming adventures, who would win in a hair-off between her and River Song, and the possible meaning behind some of classic and upcoming episode titles. Come for the Season 9 teasers, stay for the...ahem...unique interpretation of "Terror of the Autons."
