A weekly rummage in the attic of sci-fi

Today we must, of course, pay tribute to the late Nicholas Courtney, whose performance as Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart gave us one of the most cherished icons of Doctor Who. Here he is on the cover of Doctor Who And The Auton Invasion, the Target novelisation that adapted Jon Pertwee's debut story "Spearhead From Space". RIP, Brig. Consider this a 3-volley salute in honour of UNIT's finest.
