R.I.P. Nicholas Courtney

It breaks my heart as a “Doctor Who” fan to report that Nicholas Courtney, known for the last 43 years as Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart, has passed away today at the age of 81.  Courtney was a mainstay of the series in its classic run and Big Finish’s audio adventures, and reprised the role of the Brigadier on television in the Sarah Jane Adventures two-parter “Enemy of the Bane.”

Check out the TARDIS Newsroom for more information on Courtney’s extensive career.  Our thoughts, and those of fellow fans, are with his family today.
