Former Doctor Who star Sylvester McCoy has been unveiled as a chieftain for a Highland games event!

Former Doctor Who Sylvester McCoyThe Scottish actor, who played the Seventh Doctor in the cult BBC series in the 1980s, said he was “absolutely delighted” with the role for the Cowal Highland Gathering in Dunoon.

In what amounts to the busiest period of Seventh Doctor news since he appeared in the 1996 TV movie – McCoy has also been linked with a star role in The Hobbit – Sylvester will be on hand for various ceremonial tasks at the event, such as presenting prizesto the winners of the Cowal Pipe Band Championships and the World Highland Dancing Championship.

McCoy will also take the salute during the pipe band march past during the event.

We don’t know if there is any requirement for Sylvester to rrrroll his rrrrs, but we’re certain he will, given the excuse.
