Doctor Who stars Peter Capaldi and Michelle Gomez were reunited over the weekend, with the two Scottish actors – who played the Twelfth Doctor and Missy/The Master respectively – both appearing at fan convention ReGeneration Who in Baltimore to chat about their time on the BBC sci-fi series and meet some of those adoring fans.
- Christopher Eccleston says he “lost faith and trust and belief” in Doctor Who bosses while filming
- Jodie Whittaker and the cast of Doctor Who join David Tennant to support World Down Syndrome Day
And the fans WERE adoring, with many attendees blown away to see the pair in action together again, and many others excited to actually meet them in person.

I want you all to tell me this isn't the greatest photo op to exist.#PeterCapaldi in a party hat, as promised. Bonus Michelle, whose response to wearing a party hat was "I'm wearing mine like this. Be careful what you ask for." pic.twitter.com/Gjad7iU6QD

I had a fabulous time crossing all of time and space and reveling in my #DoctorWho fandom @ReGenerationWho (I’m British, what did you expect?) including meeting my favorite Doctor, the fabulous Peter Capaldi, and the best Master(Missy!) of all time, Michelle Gomez! pic.twitter.com/TgiVMQsSFE

Sure, it’s not actually been that long since they were together onscreen – it was only last July – but now that the pair have both moved on from Doctor Who, it’s good to see they can still cross paths every now and again. It would be a much darker universe without the Doctor and Missy knocking heads from time to time.
Doctor Who returns to BBC1 this autumn
