R.I.P. The Brigadier, Nicholas Courtney Dies at Age 81
It is with great sadness and a very heavy heart, that I report the passing of Nicholas Courtney, best known for his role as the Brigadier.
He was first seen in Doctor Who as Bret Vyon a security agent in the 12 part "The Daleks Master Plan" Later taking up the Role of Colonel Lethbridge Stewart in "The Web of Fear" and then comming back one year later as Brigadier Lethbridge Stewart in the Invasion.
Nicholas was last seen on TV, actually as the Brigadier in Sarah Jane Adventures two parter "Enemy of The Bane," but had actually had a very active role in audio With Big Finish, first comming back in the Doctor Who main range along side Colin Baker in "The Spectre of lanyon Moor" but also staring partly in the UNIT audio dramas. Also he had his own Companion Chronicle called "Old Soldiers"
My thoughts, and indeed our thoughts are with his family at this time.
