The Michelle Gomez Database

Michelle Gomez is an actor beloved for bringing to life television characters that are at once powerful, intimidating and slightly unhinged but always captivating, sympathetic and likeable, even when morally reproachable. However, long before Michelle exploded onto our screens as the wacky Sue White in Green Wing, the iconic Missy in Doctor Who or the enchanting Lilith/Madam Satan in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, she was treading the boards in theatres around the UK and in New York.

This website, styled in the colours Michelle envisaged for Missy's TARDIS, is a living, growing database of everything Michelle Gomez. As well as her Screen and Audio credits, all crafted with exclusive focus on Michelle's roles, I am proud to present what I believe is the most comprehensive database of Michelle Gomez's theatre work on the internet. Since I was unable to find a complete reference anywhere, I decided to research and produce my own. The Theatre section is the culmination of many hours of ongoing research and is packed with images, press clippings and other details from Michelle's extensive acting career.

Other info will be added here in due course.

Progress Update

Just a quick progress update as I've been beavering away!

I have now completed Michelle's Radio credits to the best of my present knowledge. There will be images and clips added at some point but that's further along the line. Additionally I've added a selection of recent Podcasts which I will build on over time and I've added improved previous/next pagers wherever appropriate across the site for easier navigation.

The Screen section is coming along steadily. This is the database of Michelle's film and television credits and ...

Trainspotting Update

I found myself with a puzzle to solve this week when I got hold of a theatre programme from the Trainspotting tour in 1996. The programme reportedly came from the performance at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in Leeds and the cast is the same as in the programme I already had for the Whitehall Theatre. It contains a very welcome list of dates and venues for the tour, some of which I wasn't previously aware. However, it didn't take me long to realise there was a discrepancy. While I've already established from my other programme that Michelle was in Trainspotting at the Whitehall from 13th March ...
