Corey Taylor Explains How He Came To Voice Alien Overlord On ‘Doctor Who’

October 10, 2015

Slipknot & Stone Sour singer Corey Taylor recently did an interview with Kerrang! magazine about being asked by the producers of “Doctor Who” to lend his “deep and terrifying roar to the alien warlord known as Fisher King” in the October 3 episode of the BBC television series.

Taylor talked about his involvement: “Dude… So, what happened was, while we were on tour with Korn [earlier this year], we were approached about doing the tour of the Doctor Who Experience and I was asked whether I would be interested in doing something for the show. And I freaked the fuck out.”

He continued: “I’ve been a ‘Doctor Who’ fan since I was a kid. It’s been a part of my life forever. So, of course, the answer [to their offer] was,’Fuck yeah!’ We went down, I took a million pictures, and then we went to BBC Wales. They described the character that I was going to be vocalizing, and I screamed into a mic for about an hour. [Laughs]”

Fisher King was previously described as a massive green alien that has tons of horns protruding from his body.

Fisher King is played by Neil Fingleton, the tallest British-born man and the tallest man in the European Union at 7 ft 7.56 in (232.6 cm) in height, and his speaking voice is “Shaun Of The Dead”‘s Peter Serafinowicz.
