Sylvester McCoy Interview – 30th May 2020

On Saturday 30th May 2020, I interviewed Sylvester McCoy as part of the live-streaming “All In A Tiswas” which was presenting compilations of old Tiswas clips, plus at least one live guest each week with a connection to Tiswas. Sylvester had been a regular on the show during the late 70s and early 80s, so I asked him to tell me about it…

During the lockdown of 2020, TiswasOnline - a group of dedicated Tiswas fans (including me!) - decided to re-run clips of Tiswas on Saturday Mornings again, all to raise money for charity (see below). In addition, we contacted as many members of the Tiswas Team as we could and asked them if they'd be up for a special online chat.

And so it was that on Saturday 30th May, it was my turn to speak with one of my heroes - Sylvester McCoy!

Now, when you watch this do bear in mind it was during the lockdown period when interviews of this sort could only really be done via the internet on webcams and then re-broadcast over the internet, so there are a few pauses, glitches, and stutters along the way... but I've tidied up the worst of them and so here is Sylv, talking Tiswas (and also about something called Doctor Who...).

Our charity of choice is the NHS Birmingham Children's Hospital and at the time of recording, we'd raised well over £1000 for them. If you'd like to donate to this wonderful cause, please visit

Thank You!
