BBC One has announced that Michelle Gomez (Bad Education, Green Wing) has joined the cast of “Doctor Who” playing the Gatekeeper of the Nethersphere when the series returns on August 23.

Speaking about the role, Michelle 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.”

Filming is well underway for Series 8 of “Doctor Who.” Guest stars confirmed to join Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman in the new series include Frank Skinner, Ben Miller, Tom Riley, Keeley Hawes and Hermione Norris.
