sylvester-mccoyMOBILEDoctor Who’s Sylvester McCoy is to be a special guest at the next MCM London Comic Con in May, show organisers have announced. McCoy played the much-loved sci-fi show’s Seventh Doctor from 1987-1989, returning to make one-off appearances as the famous Time Lord in 1993 charity special Dimensions In Time, the 1996 Doctor Who TV movie and 2013’s Hugo-nominated The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot.

Instantly recognisable with his trademark panama hat, McCoy is credited with turning the Seventh Doctor from a comic character into a more complex and poignant figure, with Doctor Who head writer Steven Moffat commenting that ‘instead of going for the obvious that he’s little and funny, he goes for mysterious and dark and wise and terribly sad’.

More recently, Sylvester McCoy has appeared on the big screen as eccentric nature-loving wizard Radagast the Brown in Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy.
