Brigadier!

Speaking to the Radio Times, veteran Nick Courtney has declared that he would love to return to Doctor Who!

What better time to ask the Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart actor the question that so many of us want to know than during the broadcast of The Sontaran Stratagem and its second part The Poison Sky, an adventure the features both the Brig’s successors at UNIT and Sontarans, aliens first witnessed during the "UNIT era"

78-year-old Courtney told Radio Times: "If the script were right, I’d love to do one story. It’d be great fun. And they’ve brought back Sarah [Jane Smith] – of course, Lis Sladen is still very pretty."

However, the veteran actor is not optimistic that Lethbridge-Stewart will ever be seen again, despite his popularity among fans. "I don’t know Russell T. [Davies] at all. Never met him," Courtney said. "Put it this way: he probably would have approached me by now if it were on the cards."

He has a very good point.
