About The Master (Missy)
The Master is Doctor Who’s arch-nemesis who is hell-bent on controlling the world, something the good Doctor cannot allow to happen. Many actors have portrayed The Master since 1971, however, the latest “Missy” version is played by actor Michelle Gomez in the popular BBC series. Missy is actually short for “Mistress” and is a renegade alien Timelord.
The Master is intelligent, often using extremely manipulative ploys to get her way, such as offering her army of Cybermen to the Doctor in order to compromise him. She even saved Doctor Who’s life once, only to try and trick him into killing an ally. In a strange twist, Missy is captured and promises the Doctor she will be good and is true to her word. This ultimately leads to her death at the hands of a previous incarnation of The Master, played by John Simm.
