1 Michelle Gomez Opinions on Tue Jul 11, 2017 11:49 pm

I was just wondering what did most people here think of her performance or her as an actress overall?

Well I'll admit after I first saw Death in Heaven I thought her performance was terrible. Again the reason for that was because it was so divorced from the previous Masters like Delgado and Ainley. However I felt I was being a bit unfair to her to say she was a bad actress because of one performance, so I checked out her other stuff and ironically outside of DW I became a big fan. She is a brilliant performer and in hindsight I don't think she was bad as Missy. She played the role she was given well. She was at points menacing, funny, and she brought a lot of gravitas to the role, and had amazing chemistry with Capaldi. Her chemistry with Capaldi was much better than Matt and Kingstons or Tennant and Pipers. Matt and Alex Kingston just looked awkward with each other, whilst Billie Piper and Tennant where too smug

Again however the only problem was that the role she was given wasn't the Master. Also I don't think any woman would be good for the Master as they would just jar with the men who came before, but even then Missy was written out of character with the villain.

Seriously watch these two videos and tell me you don't laugh when you think she is the Master





Still I think if they had made Missy a new character who was just a love interest of the Doctor then Michelle's performance would be thought of as one of the best in DW's long history. As it is though because they tried to link her to a previous villain for divisive political reasons then it will always be controversial which is a real shame.

Still here's hoping she goes on to bigger and better things as she deserves it.

Uf you take out the stupid parts of her last story, like the whole doctor who joke, I'd say she was ok as an actor.

Just a pitty the best actor to ever play the role was killed off by RTD.

Michelle Gomez: the best Master in the history of the show - by far.

Acted the socks off Simm in the finale, and was only just eclipsed by Capaldi's magnificence.

Didn't always get the material she deserved, but she was fun, impertinent, cruel, complex and mesmerising all at the same time.

Yup. The Curse Of Fatal Death made into a full series type joke.

'Missy' is symptomatic of 'showrunners' who love Doctor Who SO MUCH, they end up squeezing the life out of it. The show as now is makes sense if you see it as protracted cute aggression by sad gits who secretly want to snog Tom Baker and stab their Dad.

What's this Mike who goes on about how much he hates toxic masculinity, and how the Doctor is such a positive role model for not being a stereotypical man trying to shame people he doesn't like for not shagging enough babes? LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL

Jacobi was the only good one, and even then, he could barely be heard thanks to Murry Gold.

I have to say the first ten minutes of the last Cyberman story with Missy saying "Am Ductah Huuuuuuuuuu!" before dabbing the air and generally acting like a Grade A cunt were some of the very worst moments in all of series 10.

In fact, I'm sure this whole obnoxious scene was Moffat reciting the teasing he got from school girls for watching Doctor Who as a small boy...and was working it out of his system like a repressed self loathing fanboy.

A shame, because although I never recognised or respected the ludicrous premise that this irritant of a character was The Master, when toned down as she was for the rest of the season, Gomez came across as a far more capable actress.
