Doctor Who’s Michelle Gomez: Kissing Peter Capaldi’s nose is the craziest thing I’ve ever done as a fan

The actress says snogging The Doctor's schnoz wasn't in the script but insists the Time Lord was "asking for it"

We’ve all done crazy things for our love of a show but Doctor Who’s Michelle Gomez definitely took her fan antics to a higher level when she went off script and snogged Peter Capaldi’s nose within the first five minutes of arriving on set.

And while she insists that Missy would rather snog a Dalek than the Doctor, the actress tells BBC America that fellow Glaswegian Capaldi was quite simply “asking for it”.

“Well, he wasn’t, but his nose was. It sort of sits so proud,” she explains. “It had to be done.”

Taking part in the “3 Questions, 2 Biscuits, and 1 Cuppa Tea” challenge, Gomez, who last appeared on our screens as Missy in The Witch’s Familiar, also revealed how she takes her tea.

“Hot, strong and weak – a bit like The Doctor.”

We still think she needs her own Missy Doctor Who spin-off. Do you?
