While Doctor Who producer Brian Minchin recently spoke with SFX about what’s coming up for Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor and his companion Clara (Jenna Coleman).
He also discussed Missy, who will be back in the season opener's two-parter, and according Minchin Missy will not return in a way that everyone expects.
"Steven had the perfect story. It’s not going to be Missy as you expect her to be. Steven likes to surprise everyone and he’s going to do that with this opening. Missy has an awful lot of sides to her and we’re going to see some new ones in this series. We also learn a bit more about her relationship with the Doctor…" said Minchin in SFX #261.
Minchin also teased spoilers regarding the upcoming adventures between the Doctor and Clara.
"These are the glory days of the Doctor and Clara. They’re having the biggest, most dangerous adventures they’ve ever had and they’re having great fun doing it."
“The mission statement we had was bigger adventures, and to go further in space and time. We’ve got a very confident Doctor, we’ve got a very confident companion and they’re both experts at doing this now so we can tell slightly bigger stories.”
On two-parters Minchin reiterates Steven Moffat’s past comment: “We’re doing more two-parters – and not just conventional two parters. We’re doing linked stories where you might not be sure how they’re going to be connected until you see them.
