Love the touch of the terrible Zodin in the corner there! That aside, quite an astounding tribute to Doctor Who's greatest supporting character, a job finely done.

Man, I learned of his passing away in the show and went screaming: Noooooooooo! when my friend who only watched the new series simply did not understood.
A pity he didn't make a last appearance in the new series :(.

Which is exactly why Paul and I did Fade Away. Lots of old time fans told us they consider Fade Away canon now. Which is lovely.

We all will. Did you read Paul Hanley and I's Doctor Who: Fade Away comic? It's about the 11th Doctor and the Brig's final meeting. [link]

I always liked how the Brigadier was a little too "by the book" at times. I had hoped that just maybe he would pop in for a cameo on the newest series, but that isn't going to happen now that Mister Courtney has passed. What gets me is how come it got such little press? He was a corner stone of Doctor Who in the Pertwee years.

He was on Sarah Jane Adventures -but I wished he gotten onto the main show as well. He will be missed.
