What I wonder now, is what FOX thinks of that article. It´s the first time that definitely skeleton creatures, or monsters (PLURAL!!) are mentioned and that they kill the crew.
It's worth keeping in mind how off the mark a lot of newspaper reports are when it comes to this sort of thing. A number of supposed exclusives to do with 'Doctor Who
' come to mind... You'd be surprised at how many of these reports are almost purely the result of one of their journalists skimming forums like this and just cobbling together a few basic suppositions.
Unless it's in the form of a direct quote, treat all of the alleged facts as guesses. The 'skeletal alien monstrosities' thing is most likely just the reporter remembering Giger's original design. Looks like the actor just told them her character's name/purpose and they had some space on the resulting article to fill.
