Missy and The Master - New Iconic Image Released

The BBC have released a new iconic image for the 2-part finale of Doctor Who Series 10, World Enough and Time and The Doctor Falls.

The new image (pictured above) features Missy (Michelle Gomez) and The Master (John Simm) together for the first time. The pair are seen either side of The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) as they put their own chilling spin on the iconic poster image that previously accompanied Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary special, The Day of the Doctor.

Simm will return to Doctor Who as the Master for the first time since New Year’s Day 2010, when he was responsible for the regeneration of the Tenth Doctor. This time the Master will come face-to-face with Missy, his later regeneration, and battle the Doctor during the series’ two part finale which begins next weekend.

The episodes will also feature the return of the Cybermen – including the original Mondasian Cybermen, for the first time in over 50 years – plus Bill Potts (Pearl Mackie) and Nardole (Matt Lucas) in an epic adventure that will change Doctor Who forever.

Doctor Who’s series finale begins with episode 11, World Enough and Time, at 6:45pm BST on Saturday 24th June on BBC One. It concludes on Saturday 1st July with episode 12, The Doctor Falls – an extended, 60 minute episode.

A Blast from the Past...

This was my bible in 1983.  It was the 20th anniversary of Doctor Who, and the Radio Times did a special edition to celebrate, full of interviews, lovely photos, and info about past companions, aliens and episodes.  There was a competition, a poem, behind the scenes stuff, and a pull out poster of the Doctor, Tegan & Turlough (which I don’t have anymore because I pulled it out and stuck it on my wall…!)  I remember using it to do a project on Doctor Who at primary school; I think I even got a cardboard box and painted it up blue to make it into a TARDIS… happy days.  

In 2013 I took it to the 50th Anniversary celebration at Excel in London, where, having nothing else with me, I got Janet to sign it.  Then in 2015 I went to the Big Finish Day 6 event where I met Sarah, Matthew, Janet (again), Louise and Lalla, so I got them to sign it too.  I’m not a big convention goer so I doubt I’m going to work my way through the remaining cast, but I really would like to get Peter to sign it some day… I was due to see him at Southport Comicon last year but he cancelled and evaded my clutches… gah! :)
