Rest in Peace, Brigadier
If you've watched any classic Who, especially any of the 3rd Doctor episodes (some of the best in the series, in my opinion), you might be familiar with the character. He was very capable and had his own ideas of how problems needed to be handled. This could often lead to situations where the Doctor and the Brigadier butted heads, and yet it was clear that the characters had a great deal of respect for each other. He has long been one of my favorite characters in the long history of the show, and I hoped that with the reemergence of the show and the occasional appearance of UNIT that Courtney would reprise his role on NuWho.
While that never happened, he did get to appear as the Brig one last time on the spin off series, The Sarah Jane Adventures.
