Sylvester McCoy Reads the Pandorica Speech at Dragon*Con 2011
At this year's Dragon*Con fantasy, comics and science-fiction convention held in Atlanta, Georgia, former Doctor Who star Sylvester McCoy was the featured guest at a Doctor Who panel on Friday hosted by Ken Plume.
As the panel ended, Plume rather awkwardly brought up the topic that one of the chief criticisms of the Seventh Doctor's era was the writing compared to the scripts of today. McCoy was given a copy of the script for last year's episode "The Pandorica Opens" in order to give a Seventh Doctor spin on the now-famous scene where Matt Smith's Eleventh Doctor boldly calls out the alliance of aliens swarming above Stonehenge in their spaceships.
The results are pure McCoy, especially around the 2:45 mark. Here's the video found on YouTube, thanks to geeksofdoom...
Special thanks to Liam Kemp for the heads up.
