Remembering Nicholas Courtney (1929-2011)

“Chap with the wings, there. Five rounds rapid.”

That immortal line, spoken famously by UNIT’s only true leader. Evoking such brilliant memories in young and old.

One year ago to this day, our Brigadier - Nicholas Courtney – passed away. A year since the news and it still feels unreal.
Gone? Surely not. Our Brig?

Nobody has to do anything particularly flamboyant or spectacular, just remember him. Not that we could forget, but just keep him in mind today and, in doing so, raise your glass and give a little tip of the old UNIT cap to Nicholas Courtney who played Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart with such brilliance for so long.
