Day nine: Which Doctor Who alumni would you like to bring back? This could be either a character or an actor, your choice! 

I’m going to pretend we have a TARDIS to go and get him, and say the Brigadier!

I love, love, love everything about him, and I would have loved to see how he and the Twelfth Doctor would have interacted with each other!


I was absolutely devastated to hear the news of Nicholas Courtney’s death… I don’t have access to my Photoshop, so instead here is an incoherent collection of clips in which the Brig is awesome, from Big Finish’s The Spectre of Lanyon Moor. I wish I had more eloquence to offer here, but I’m just sitting in a corner choking up whenever I think about it, so… Maybe tomorrow.
