You may be looking for Doctor Who and the Loch Ness Monster.

The Loch Ness Monster, also known as Nessie, was a mysterious animal claimed to inhabit Loch Ness, a lake in Scotland. The Duke of Forgill collected books on the Monster. (TV: Terror of the Zygons)

History Edit

One creature that was believed to be the Loch Ness Monster was the Skarasen, which was brought to Earth by the Zygons circa the 12th century and subsequently created legends of a monster associated with the place. (TV: Terror of the Zygons) Another possible source for the belief in the monster was the Borad, who was brought to Earth from the planet Karfel via the Timelash in 1179. (TV: Timelash) However, two Celestis investigators killed him shortly after his arrival in Scotland. (PROSE: The Taking of Planet 5) In another account, Loch Ness had not one or even two, but thousands of monsters. (PROSE: Christmas on a Rational Planet)

The Library of St John the Beheaded had a number of manuscripts describing the monster's habits and physiognomy. (PROSE: All-Consuming Fire)

"Archie", the head of Torchwood 2, accidentally sent an e-mail containing a picture of the monster to the Glasgow Herald. (PROSE: The Twilight Streets)

References Edit

Sarah Jane Smith, who had encountered the Skarasen, mentioned to Rose Tyler that she met the Loch Ness Monster in a bid to win the bragging contest between the two of them. (TV: School Reunion)

Behind the scenes Edit

  • In the unproduced Doctor Who movie, Doctor Who Meets Scratchman, the Doctor is mentioned as having found the Loch Ness Monster, a reference to the events of Terror of the Zygons.
  • The Loch Ness Monster could have appeared in "Doctor Who and the Monsters of Ness", a pilot episode starring David Burton made by an independent company in the 1990s. However, this is widely considered as a hoax.
