Gillan’s Scottish Monster
Doctor Who star Karen Gillan has revealed that she wants to see the time travellers encounter the Loch Ness Monster, the bizarre legend of a giant sea creature living in one of Scotland’s largest lakes.
According to the Daily Record, Karen Gillan is keen to see the monster in Doctor Who, apparently unaware that it has appeared at least twice before…
” I said to Steven that we should do something with the Loch Ness Monster in Inverness.”
The Loch Ness Monster was revealed in 1975 serial Terror of the Zygons to be a giant robot, controlled by the shapeshifting Zygons; however 1985′s Timelash revealed that the monster was in fact the Borad, a secretive, totalitarian ruler cast into the timelash, a time controller that happened to be pointing at Scotland.
In case you didn’t know, Karen Gillan is Scottish. She certainly doesn’t seem to mind mentioning it from time to time, just in case you forget…
“The Scots are taking over….I would love to see someone like Billy Connolly in the show.
“I just think we should have someone who’s a big character and who is really funny. Someone like that,who is Scottish.”
