Michelle Gomez to Appear in Doctor Who

The BBC have announced that Green Wing actress Michelle Gomez will star in the forthcoming season of Doctor Who as the  'Gatekeeper of the Nethersphere'.

Gomez said of working with the new Doctor, Peter Capaldi:

"Well of course Peter Capaldi is our next Doctor, which makes complete sense. I'm thrilled to join him. Well, you would be, wouldn't you?" 

Executive producer Steven Moffat added: 

“I've known Michelle for years, and I'm thrilled to welcome her to Doctor Who. She's everything we need - brilliant, Scottish, and a tiny bit satanic...

Gomez will join other guest stars such as Frank Skinner, Ben Miller, Tom Riley, Keeley Hawes and Hermione Norris in Season 8, which starts 23rd August 2014.
