I like Sylvester McCoy as an actor but sadly tenure was the weakest out of all the classic Time lords. I'm not saying I disliked his acting style (he's a very accomplished actor) but whoever said for him to play the role like court jester was wrong, and he even stated so himself that this was not the way he wanted to play the role in interview at the time.

Anyway, to give him credit he did have some good stories such as Silver Nemesis , Ghost Light, Mark & Time of the Rani stories plus others of note. Although there were some howlers such as "theĀ Happiness Patrol" & "Paradise Towers" which both lacked credibility let alone some ridiculous baddies. I'm not saying that the actual storylines written were bad, far from it , but the ones at fault were the tight fisted BBC budget and its constraints combined with a then tired format hindered Sylvesters time as the Time Lord hence 15yrs absent of the series until its rebirth in 2005.
