RIP Brigadier…

Nicholas Courtney, known to Doctor Who fans worldwide as Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart, has passed away, aged 81…

Nicholas, who appeared opposite five television Doctors, made his first appearance in DW as Space Security Agent Bret Vyon in the First Doctor epic The Daleks’ Master Plan. He is of course best remembered as UNIT stalwart Lethbridge-Stewart.  Originally slated to play Captain Knight in the Second Doctor adventure The Web Of Fear, he was ‘promoted’ to the role of Colonel by director Douglas Camfield when original actor David Langton pulled out, and returned a year later as a newly promoted Brigadier in The Invasion, a role he was to become associated with for over forty years!

William Nicholas Stone Courtney (16th December 1929 – 22nd February 2011)
