RIP Brigadier

Nicholas Courtney, who played the character of Brigadier Alastair Lethbridge-Stewart on television for 40 years (1968-2008) in Doctor Who has died at the age of 81. The Brigadier was played honestly but with humour, despite an occasionally regrettable penchant for shooting things, and that warmth seemed to be a reflection of the actor. He will be missed.

No one else could ever order an attack on a stone gargoyle so stylishly :(

Sad news. He was a classic in the Whoniverse.
