Michelle Gomez says re-used Doctor Who filming location is important

July 28th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Ok, major pinch of salt time folks, but Missy herself – Michelle Gomez – has been getting chatty about the behind the scenes filming shenanigans on Doctor Who.  

Remember last August when Missy made her first debut in the series with Series 8’s Deep Breath?  Remember that fancy garden she twirled around madly in?  Of course you do – as some eagle eyed fans took to every social media site ever made to say that it was the same garden Amy Pond stumbled in to in 2011’s The Girl Who Waited.  But whats the connection??


Gomez confirmed that, yes, it was all part of the plan: “Oh, there’s no coincidence in Doctor Who. Everything’s connected, that’s what makes it really spooky in a way.” She went on to hint: “Yes, there’s a connection yet to be revealed.”

Will this actually be the case?  Or is this just more misdirection from the cast?  After all, Doctor Who is known for re-using locations all the time – in the 70’s they were especially fond of the same quarry.

Doctor Who series 9 kicks off on September 19th.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
