RIP The Brig

Dr Who fans will be saddened to learn of the death of Nicholas Courtney, who played Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart. 

He appeared (under different guises) with each of the Doctors except the sixth (hmm never did much take to Colin Baker!) up until the revived series, with an extended stint between 1970 and 1975.  His last appearance in the role was in 2008, in the spin-off series the Sarah Jane Adventures.

He was aged 81.  Please pray for the repose of his soul.

I liked Alistair. I think I'll pop in the Robot episode, and yell at the TV "No, Brigadier, no!! Don't use the disintegrator gun!!!"
