She also played psychotic hospital administrator Sue White in Green Wing.
Here is her twitter account.
Tropes associated with her works:
- Bad Cop/Incompetent Cop: As the inept WPC Sally Bobbins in Feel The Force.
- Comedic Sociopathy: A recurring theme in her work: Sally Bobbins, Sue White, Isobel Pickwell....and Up to Eleven with Missy, of course.
- Expy: The Lady, an underworld fixer Gomez played on Gotham, had a similar appearance to Missy, many of the same mannerisms, and a name close enough in meaning to be considered a themed alias.
- Ms. Fanservice: She got a sexy Bathtub Scene in The Book Group, a full-on nude scene in The Acid House and in one episode of the web series Heather's American Medicine she could be seen wearing only a Modesty Towel. Jack Davenport proposed to her after seeing her perform topless in the stage version of Trainspotting.
- Villainous Cheekbones: Up there with Mads Mikkelsen.
