Chap With Wings There, Five Rounds Rapid

February 22nd, 2011

I’d argue that, more than any other single actor to have appeared on Doctor Who, Nicholas Courtney was its heart and soul. He first appeared as an interstellar secret agent in the 1965 First Doctor adventure The Daleks’ Master Plan, but it was his 1968 reintroduction as Colonel (later Brigadier) Alastair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart that made him a fan favorite. He played that role again and again, appearing alongside the Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth and Seventh Doctors. Inexplicably, he never showed up on the rejuvenated Doctor Who series, but he did drop in on its spin-off The Sarah Jane Adventures.

I salute you, sir. You will be missed.
