    I grew up on old school Dr. Who. Courtney's portrayal of Brigadier Alastair Lethbridge-Stewart was always a favorite of mine.

    Of all things... my 2 youngest daughters have caught the Dr. Who bug. Caught it from watching some young Brit YouTube phenom called Charlie.

    Aye I was sad to hear of the passing of the Brigadier. Back when I was no-but a very young child watching Jon Pertwee (always my Doctor :)) he was my introduction to the very concept of the military and the related virtues of courage and discipline :bows:.
