Nothing gets the Doctor Who community into a frenzy quite like a mysterious new character. And there hasn't been a mysterious character quite like Michelle Gomez's Missy - the Gatekeeper of the Nethersphere.
The demented Mary Poppins-esque umbrella twizzler, who we've seen briefly in both of Peter Capaldi's episodes, clearly has a key role to play throughout the new series (and possibly beyond). But at the moment, it's unclear, who she is, where she is and what she's after.
Where do you go when you need a Doctor Who fan theory? The Digital Spy forums, obviously. Here are 9 lines of thought on Missy that are doing the rounds...
1. Missy is the...Tardis
John T Baptist: "A physical aspect of the Tardis was played by Suranne Jones in a previous episode, it doesn't mean it's going to keep the same appearance later on."

8.2 Into The Dalek
"Am I a good man?"
No episode of Doctor Who is easy. Dalek stories? They carry a heavier burden of responsibility than most. As iconic a part of the show as the Tardis, these are the creatures that are supposed to be - but rarely are - the Doctor's deadliest foe. They can blitz away Cybermen without a second thought. They have weapons that can kill in the time it takes to admire a fiftysomething man's eyebrows. They make the BBC lots of cash through toy sales. And yet it's rarely a Dalek episode that's called out as a series highlight (Remembrance Of The Daleks the most recent towering exception, Dalek running it close).
Into The Dalek stakes one hell of a claim, »
Yesterday, we introduced you to new Doctor Who cast member Sam Anderson. Now tonight’s episode, which screens on BBC America, will find another person losing his Who-virginity: Michael Smiley. The actor and comedian is no stranger to much-loved cult TV, having appeared in both the Edgar-Wright-directed sitcom Spaced and the Idris Elba cop show Luther. He also starred in the deranged 2011 horror movie Kill List, whose director Ben Wheatley oversaw tonight’s ominously-titled episode of Doctor Who, “Into the Dalek.”
“It was just a call out of the blue,” says Smiley. “Ben was asked to do the first two »

Big Finish has produced some fairly smart products over the years, and indeed the packaging on the physical CD products has been top notch. But it’s a digital world now; the excitement of opening a brand new album has been replaced (for the most part) by the excitement of near instant gratification. Of course, Big

DreamWorks Animation has inked a deal with Studio Mir for the latter to produce as many as to four cartoon TV series during the next four years. The South Korean animation studio, known for 2D fantasy series The Legend Of Korra, which airs stateside on Nickelodeon, said that it will work with the Jeffrey Katzenberg-led Dwa to plan and produce the series, all of which will be 2D and get 78 episodes. Studio Mir founder and executive producer Yoo Jae-myung said such a partnership “has never been done before by a Korean studio.”
Bill Kerr, the Australian actor known as “the boy from Wagga Wagga,” died Thursday in Perth. He was 92. Kerr was a radio and vaudeville star before moving to the UK in 1947. There he became one of Tony Hancock’s sidekicks on the radio version of the popular BBC program Hancock’s Half Hour in 1954. He later appeared »

Frankenstein’s monster is so familiar to us that we don’t even call him by his actual name. He preferred Adam, but we just call him Frankenstein, even though that was the name of the Doctor who created him. But it’s the monster, not the doctor who has taken hold in the popular imagination, and we’ve seen versions of him ranging from Boris Karloff to Herman Munster to this arthritis commercial (my all-time favorite prescription drug ad). This, however, is the original iteration, the frontispiece illustration from the first edition of Mary Shelley’s horror classic. Rather than the green stitched up skin quilt with neck bolts that we know and and love, he looks like a pretty normal guy, albeit oddly feminine.
The illustration is on display at The British Museum as part of an exhibit called "Terror and Wonder: The Gothic Imagination." There are also »

It’s two times the behind-the-sofa fun, as the BBC has released not one, but two trailers for this weekend’s new episode, Into the Dalek. Why did they release two trailers? What do they show? And how are they different? Well, let’s take a look, shall we? Both spots are basically 30-ish second clips from the

Few things are more annoying than getting a drunk text from a stranger in the middle of the night. They are thankfully rare and are usually best ignored. But if you’re bored and feel like messing with a poor, witless drunkard, this might be a fun thing to do. A Doctor Who fan received a mis-sent text that said, “tortyly drunk riht now. straight men everhwere.” Clearly, this was someone who needed to be messed with. Her friend posted screen grabs of the resulting conversation on tckld, and it is hilarious. Doctor Who fans will find one side of the conversation familiar. Even if you aren't a Doctor Who fan, this is pretty funny.
I like to think that guy woke up hungover in a cemetery with no idea how he got there.
P.S. Yes, I know that it is possible to fake text conversations. I don't care. »

The first episode of the eight-part paranormal thriller, airing behind the return of “Doctor Who,” delivered 1.5 million viewers, according to Nielsen’s “live plus-3″ estimates. It had averaged 796,000 viewers in the same-night numbers initially reported, so the additional three days of DVR playback added 54% (or 427,000 viewers) to its total.
The show also had a 77% growth among adults 25-54 from its same-night tune-in (rising from 352,000 to 623,000 in “live plus-3″), a significantly greater lift than seen by the series premieres of other BBC America shows like “Atlantis” (+38%) and “Orphan Black” (+29%). “Intruders” is also second only to “Copper” as the channel’s highest series premiere ever in live+3.

2014. After the celebratory shenanigans of 2013, this year so far has been something of a head-scratching enigma in the land of Doctor Who. Whereas 2013's Psychic Paper showed up a balloon-doffing, missing episode recovering party animal, 2014's Psychic Paper draws a blank. The endless Missing Episode Omnishambles trudges wearily on, a bleary, pointless mess of internal politics, bickering and question dodging worthy of Chancellor Goth. Brand new episodes mysteriously leak online, prompting the question as to how it was so easy to shove them into the public domain in the first place. Even The Underwater Menace DVD has seemingly sunk without trace – look at that, I'm pining for The Underwater Menace, so obviously these are murky times.
