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…
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 https://www.justgiving.com/tiswasonline
