Throughout his acquaintance with the Doctor, he's faced down nearly every iconic enemy in the universe. People might argue that the Doctor is quintessentially British, but the Brigadier is probably the most stereotypically British companion, facing every eventuality with a stiff upper lip, a wry sense of humour and a determination to keep calm and carry on. And he loves a good cup of tea.
Although we'll never get to see Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart interact with any new Doctor, his legacy lives on in past episodes, books and Big Finish Audio, along with Kate. Others claim the title of most faithful companion, but it's hard to argue with the Brigadier's loyalty throughout the years.
Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, sir, we salute you. Five rounds rapid should do as a victory celebration, right?
