Doctor Who star named games chief

Former Doctor Who star Sylvester McCoy has been unveiled as a chieftain for a Highland games event.

The Scottish actor, who played the seventh Doctor in the cult BBC series in the 1980s, said he was "absolutely delighted" with the role for the Cowal Highland Gathering in Dunoon.

The role of the chieftain is ceremonial, with duties including presenting prizes to the winners of the Cowal Pipe Band Championships and the World Highland Dancing Championship. McCoy will also take the salute during the pipe band march past during the event.
