Return to Loch Ness

Loch NessThe Mirror is reporting details from season nine: Doctor Who to fight tallest ever Briton who plays alien living in Loch NessThe feature leads on Neil Fingleton, a very tall actor who plays an alien called The Fisher King living in Loch Ness. The piece also mentions the Fourth Doctor story, (Terror of the Zygons) and the Sixth Doctor story Timelash (in which the Doctor and Peri meet a young HG Wells). Neil Fingleton is set to tower over both Capaldi and Coleman in this Twelfth Doctor and Clara tale.

We already know the Zygons are back in this series, but I am taken by the name of the giant alien — The Fisher King. In Arthurian legend, the Fisher King (aka Wounded King) is charged with looking after the Holy Grail. Arthurian legend? A lake? Aliens? Is this connected somehow to the Seventh Doctor and Ace story Battlefield? I hope not, as this is not one of my favourites as I explain here.
