7 - McCoy played the Doctor from 1987 to the series cancellation in 1989. This Doctor began as an outwardly bumbling eccentric with the habit of playing the spoons, but developed into a cunning manipulator of his enemies. His assistants were Mel (Bonnie Langford) and later Ace (Sophie Aldred). McCoy made a brief appearance as the 7th Doctor in the 1996 TV Movie before regenerating into Paul McGann.
I have a Tardis on a cloud. I like to go there in my sleep. Aren't any apples for me to eat. Not in my Tardis on a cloud. There is a lady all in blue. Holds me and says I'm the Tardis blue. She's nice to see and real to touch and she says My Doctor, I love you very much...
