Doctor Who's Brigadier dies

Nicholas Courtney, who played Brigadier Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart on more than 100 episodes of "Doctor Who" died Tuesday at age 81.

"Of all the characters in Doctor Who there is no doubt he was the most loved by the fans for his wonderful portrayal of the rather pompous Brigadier," said Tom Baker, who played opposite him as the fourth incarnation of The Doctor.

The Brigadier, who first appeared in the Sixties, was a key figure in the adventures during Jon Pertwee's run as The Doctor, but the character appeared regularly opposite other Time Lords.
