Sci-Fi Scarborough have confirmed that Sylvester McCoy will be appearing at the popular event on Saturday 8th April as a part of their SatWhoDay guest line up.

Best known for playing the seventh incarnation of The Doctor from 1987-1989 as well as his role as the wizard Radagast the Brown alongside Sir Ian McKellen in Peter Jackson's film adaptations of The Hobbit.

McCoy became the Seventh Doctor after taking over the lead role in Doctor Who in 1987 from Colin Baker. He remained on the series until it ended in 1989. As Baker declined the invitation to film the regeneration scene, McCoy briefly wore a wig and appeared, face-down, as the 6th Doctor. He played the Doctor in the 1993 charity special Dimensions in Time, and again in 1996, appearing in the beginning of the Doctor Who television movie starring Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor, readers of Doctor Who Magazine voted McCoy's Doctor "Best Doctor", over perennial favourite Tom Baker.

In November 2013 McCoy co-starred in the one-off 50th anniversary comedy homage The Five(ish) Doctors.

Co-organiser Steve Dickinson “We are delighted that Sylvester is joining us for SFS 4, we have not been visited by a Doctor since the inaugural event back in 2014 with Colin Baker, He’s a very popular guy, the Whovians are over the moon about it!”
