A Thank You from Sylvester

Sylvester McCoy has thanked fans for their ‘financial and spiritual’ help in supporting The Minister of Chance.

Have fun checking out what’s on Sylvester’s shelves. No points for spotting the weighty Hitler biography. And is it just me or does he look more like a distinguished old school Time Lord as he gets older?

Producers are seeking to crowd fund the first part of the Minister of Chance movie, and latest the update shows they are almost halfway to their target of £30,000.

The Minister of Chance project spun out of Death Comes to Time, the BBC audiocast Doctor Who adventure of 2001, but is entirely fan-produced. Cast members have included Sylvester himself, Paul McGann and Paul Darrow. Visit the Minister of Chance website to see how you can sponsor the film and download previous audio episodes.

About the Author


has watched Doctor Who since those great big spiders did for Jon Pertwee, and it's way too late to stop now. When he's not at his job working for a charity he spends his time following Hull City's fortunes, listening to Bruce Springsteen and wondering why it took thirty years too long for Doctor Who action figures to come along. Currently listening to: The Fifth Doctor Box Set. By, it were a crowded old TARDIS in them days...

    To his right there’s a copy of the Time Out Film Guide from the late 1980s and a copy of Europe – A History by Norman Davies. On his left there’s a paperback of the mysteriously bestselling, The Art Book. And there’s also at least one atlas.

    Never mind the Hitler book, there’s a copy of ‘Ultimate Star Trek guide to the left. Shame on you Sylv, shame on you…
