Superhero Hype reports that BBC One has annouced the addition of Michelle Gomez (Bad Education, Green Wing) for the eighth season of Doctor Who. The series will return on August 23.
Gomez said: "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?"
Lead writer and 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."
Guest stars this season include Frank Skinner, Ben Miller, Tom Riley, Keeley Hawes and Hermione Norris. The series stars Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman.
