David Morrissey as Jackson Lake, a man with a Time Lord's memories, in 2008's The Next Doctor.

Morrissey Joins The Walking Dead

The Next Doctor himself David Morrissey is The Governor.

No, this isn’t another role in a Peter Morgan scripted look at the personal and political upheaval surrounding a key historical figure from our recent past like Morrissey’s recent performance as walking rain cloud Gordon Brown in The Deal.

Instead it’s a major role in third season of The Walking Dead – the epic undead-a-thon currently airing its second series on FX.

As reported in SFX the role is plucked straight from issue 27 of the original series where the band of survivors lead by Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) arrive in the settlement of Woodbury, ruthlessly lead by Brian Blake aka The Governor.

Brian Blake’s eventual rise to power is also covered in the New Novel Series entry The Walking Dead: Rise of The Governor. In 2009 the character was voted 86th Greatest Comic Book Villain by video game site IGN.

Morrissey is fantastic choice for the absolutely abhorrent Blake – here’s hoping with the current resurgence in The Walking Dead’s fortunes we’ll get the full on Blake rather than a watered down version.

It’d be a shame not to see Blake give Rick a ‘hand’ (Snigger…wait a minute. That makes no sense).




Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
