Here at London Film and Comic Con 2019, we have not one but two past incarnations of The Doctor.
Colin Baker, the sixth actor to play the quirky time traveller, took the reigns from 1983-86. Travelling the universe in his trademark brightly coloured jacket, he fought a myriad of monsters and aliens, including the Daleks and the Cybermen, and lived to tell the tale, eventually being forced to regenerate following a crash landing on a barren planet.
Outside the show, Colin has also appeared in mini-series War and Peace (1972), and several British TV staples, including Casualty, Doctors, The Bill and Hollyoaks.
Sylvester McCoy succeeded Colin as the seventh Doctor from 1987-89. McCoy wore a much more understated suit, topped off with his unmistakeable hat. He also squared up against both the Daleks and Cybermen, and regenerated following his showdown with The Master.
McCoy has also appeared in several TV shows, including The Last Place on Earth (1985), Jackanory, Rab C .Nesbitt and Casualty.
Both Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy are great guests who love meeting their fans. Come along to London Film and Comic Con from the 26th to the 28th July 2019, where you can bag an autograph and a photo with each of them, as well as double photo shoot with Sylvester and Sophie Aldred. Sylvester is appearing Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and Colin will be there on Saturday and Sunday. Catch them while you can!
