Doctor Who Gallifrey One Brigadier Skit “The Unsung Hero”

Monday, March 8th, 2010

During the Gallifrey One convention held in Los Angeles in February of 2010, I was following the Gally discussion via the TARDIS Databanks Twitter account and noticed a lot of  mentions of this Doctor Who sketch put on during the masquerade.

I also heard a lot of people praising this guy throughout the weekend on his spectacular Brigadier Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart costume which you see featured during the skit.

Check out the full (and very funny) skit “The Unsung Hero” from the Gallifrey One Doctor Who convention in February 2010:

Battlefield To Be Released on DVD

Friday, October 31st, 2008

Battlefield UK DVD coverThe seventh Doctor story Battlefield is set to be released in the UK December 29th. The story is from the final season of the original series, and is the last story to feature the Brigadier (although sharp-eyed viewers could spot the actor, Nicholas Courtney, in a cameo in the previous season’s Silver Nemesis).

This story is one of my favorites from McCoy’s (televised) era, and blends Arthurian legends with science fiction. It was another story to continue the trend that began in season 25 of reintroducing mystery into the Doctor’s character (see Remembrance of the Daleks, which is also written by Ben Aaronovitch, for the first example of this trend).
