Brigadier Alastair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart (Nicholas Courtney)

The Brigadier Associated with the Doctor between The Web of Fear and Battlefield (irregular).

The Doctor first met the Brigadier during his second incarnation, when he was still a Colonel.

Soon afterwards the Doctor was exiled to Earth, and became scientific advisor to an organisation set up to counter alien invasion threats (UNIT - United Nations Intelligence Taskforce) whose UK operation was headed by the now-promoted Brigadier.

Fiercely patriotic, the Brigadier never encountered an alien that he didn't attempt to shoot or blow up. The Brigadier eventually retired from UNIT, and became a teacher, where he crossed paths with the Doctor once again. The Brigadier, now married to Doris, was recalled to service when alien knights invaded Carbury.
