that actor Ian Hallard
(pictured left) will be starring in Episode 3 of Doctor Who
Series 8, written by Mark Gatiss. Hallard's Spotlight CV
has updated with name of his character for the story and it is Alan-a-dale.
For those unaware,
Alan-a-dale was a member of Robin Hood's gang, the "Merry Men". Who
fans will be familiar with Ian Hallard from his role in another Gatiss story, the 50th Anniversary special, An Adventure In Space & Time
The Gatiss Series 8 adventure also stars Tom Riley (Da Vinci's Demons) who is, perhaps, playing Robin Hood. This is, of course, speculation, but it seems that Peter Capaldi's Doctor will coming face to face with the legend of Sherwood Forest.
