So farewell Brigadier!

Many a time you and your UNIT chums saved the world from horrible alien monsters.  It wasn’t always “The Doctor” and your calm panic and belief in the Doctor’s powers (despite himself) always pulled us through.  You acted with just the right amount of authority.   Saturday tea-times were never the same once you “retired” and Doctor Who was pulled from the schedules….

And as you said many times,

RIGHT!  Lets get on with it!
