Nicholas Courtney, the legendary Brigadier Allistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart, passed away 4 years ago today. He would have been 85.
One of the most beloved characters (and actors) in all of the Whoniverse.
His character carries on even to this day, with his last “appearance” in the season finale of Series 8 in portrait form, and effectively Cyber-Brig.
With Jemma Redgrave set to return as the Brig’s daughter Kate he’ll probably get a mention or two.
He was and is a legend in Doctor Who and should never be forgotten.
Now that’s Legendary. 🙂
The eagerly awaited first novel in the Lethbridge-Stewart series, The Forbidden Son, is available to pre-order now from Amazon!
Follow the Brigadier as he awakes to a whole new world after the events of 1968 serial The Web of Fear in this, the first in a series of Lethbridge-Stewart novels planned for release every quarter during 2015 – all of which are fully licensed by the Executor of the Haisman Literary Estate, Mervyn Haisman’s granddaughter Hannah Haisman, and endorsed by Henry Lincoln.
The first series consists of The Forgotten Son by Andy Frankham-Allen, Horror of Det-Sen by Lance Parkin, The Schizoid Earth by David A McIntee and Mutually Assured Domination by Nick Walters.
