Geekville Presents Examining The Doctor: Episode 7

The Seventh Doctor: Sylvester McCoy (1987-1989)

A look at The Sylvester McCoy Years, which ended the series original run in 1989.

Bonus points if you know why The TARDIS is pink!
Sylvester McCoy was the last of the original actors to play The Doctor, with his run lasting from 1987 – 1989. Still, despite many of the obstacles put in front of the show, showrunner JNT still managed to put out some classic stories. And McCoy, who wasn’t as much of an actor at the time, still brought a distinctive spin on the character. Especially when around Sophie Aldred’s Dorothy “Ace” McShane.
