The two Sylvester McCoy serials were amongst his earliest work, done slightly before he was VED in the 1988 The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, featuring Ailsa Berk as Aslan. He would go on to work mostly in television comedy during the 1990s and 2000s. His longest stint was likely on the Ardal O'Hanlon vehicle My Hero, where he was in charge of visual effects for about five years.
McVean also worked on Drop the Dead Donkey with Jeff Rawle and Victoria Wicks; French and Saunders; Goodnight Sweetheart with Dervla Kirwan; the British Comedy Award-winning Underworld, with David Troughton, Annette Crosbie and Mike Reid; Attention Scum with Catherine Tate; Absolutely Fabulous with Joanna Lumley, Julia Sawalha and June Whitfield; and Dead Ringers with Jon Culshaw.
