Random Doctor Who Picture: Sylvester McCoy as the Pied Piper  

Black and White Photo.  Sylvester McCoy is wearing an outrageous outfit, with patterned trousers and braces, and what looks to be a multi-coloured long coat with wide lapels.  Extravagant lace is visible at the  cuffs.  His haired is spiked up and  he has a small star above one eyebrow - the effect is slightly New Romantic
The credit on the back reads Sylvester McCoy in The Pied Piper by Adrian Mitchell from the poem by Robert Browning (Olivier Theatre, 1987). Photograph by Nobby Clark.

On the back of this postcard, I've written "Theatre Trip to `Anthony and Cleopatra' 6/2/88". So I must have picked this up while in the National Theatre shop. I certainly never saw the production.

I wouldn't have minded seeing that. If it was for children I'd have been the right age!

I've no idea who it was aimed at - though one assumes children. Over in t'other place londonkds (EDIT: oops parrot_knight>) suggests that the performance was inspiration for his casting/performance as the Doctor.
