WATCH: Sylvester McCoy is back as The Doctor in new Doctor Who promo

January 21st, 2021 by Marc Comments


A new clip has popped up online featuring my Doctor, Sylvester McCoy back in character along with his companion Mel, played by Bonnie Langford.

The clip has been released to mark the release of the latest installment of the Doctor Who: The Collection range, which is the 24th season of the show featuring McCoy and Langford which originally aired in 1987.

The clip focuses on the character or Mel who has become a successful intergalactic business woman hosting an event similar to Dragon’s Den wherein she grants business ideas a helping financial hand… in here we get nods to the 24th season including a reference to Paradise Towers as well as a Tetrap appearing.

The boxset is available now and is packed full of cool extras and you can watch the new clip below.

Also, it really was a bit special to see Sylvester McCoy back in the iconic hat and question-mark tanktop. Brilliant stuff.

Thoughts? I want to hear them…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
