R.I.P. Nicholas Courtney (1929-2011)

Some very sad news in the world of tv and specifically, Doctor Who.

Nicholas Courtney has died at the age of 81

Best known and remembered for playing Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge Stewart in the Doctor Who tv series, Nicholas Courtney was one of those actors who appeared in various things on British tv. I loved Nicholas in his various appearances in Doctor Who, and he played opposite the Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, and Seventh Doctors, and will always treasure his role and performances in the series.

In many ways, the death of Nicholas Courtney truly does signify the demise of Classic Who. I am very saddened by his death.

Rest In Peace, Nicholas Courtney.

Good-bye, Brigadier. You'll be missed - but at least you will live on in Doctor Who DVDs.
