50 Years Of Doctor Who: July is Seventh Doctor Month

Alt text

Starting out clownish and comical, and gradually turning darker and more mysterious, the Seventh Doctor as played by Sylvester McCoy from 1987 to 1989 (and again in 1996) raised a lot of questions about who the renegade Time Lord actually was.

He also wore a jumper covered in question marks and carried an umbrella with a handle shaped like a question mark. Just in case you didn't realise just how enigmatic he was.
