Chap With Wings…Five Rounds Rapid
The Brigadier was referenced in name in the ABC Family show the Middleman. In the episode “The Clotharian Contamination Protocol,” Wendy and The Middleman go to check out a returned Voyager probe. However, a nearby NASA listening station team also arrives. Using their random IDs, and due to the quick thinking of the Middleman, they are intimidated into leaving. As they go, the Middleman calls out the other team’s lead, “Mr… Lethbridge-Stewart, if that is your real name!”
Then the Brigadier’s daughter Kate (created in a Fan Video) appeared with Matt Smith’s Doctor in Power of the Three.
He’s part of the fabric of Doctor Who.
The character is Legend. The Man was too.
Nicholas Courtney was a very gentle soul and a proper English gentleman at Conventions. He was one of the most popular people to have at a Convention. He was quite the storyteller too. And he was slated to be back at Gallifrey in 2012 until his death in 2011.
He was at my very first Gallifrey One Convention in 1992 and he was at the TARDIS 21 in Chicago.
The Brigadier, like the Doctor, was always there in my early days.
And he is also deeply missed. 2011 was a bad year for me as two of my favourite people and characters died. My mother also passed away in September (it will be two years on the 29th).
But the legacy lives on…so enjoy…and Celebrate the greatness of Nicholas Courtney and his best mate, The Brigadier.
